DUNBIA MEATS, DUNGANNON
The company's first venture into construction within the food processing industry was in 1986 with Dunbia, an extension project that resulted in a working relationship consisting of three major projects in Granville Industrial estate and lasting some 14 years. The initial works was an extension to the existing factory to provide a boning hall and chills. The scheme was carried out working closely with the management to ensure that there was no disruption of the operations and production of the factory.
Dunbia then acquired the adjoining greenfield site so as to further expand operations to include a slaughter hall, additional chills and a further extension of the boning hall together with new loading bays, lorry and trailer parking for the delivery of livestock. New offices were also incorporated within the scheme.
The final project was a new state of the art Retail Pack Factory located in another new greenfield site in Granville, built to satisfy the ever increasing needs of Dunbia. The 80,000sq ft steel framed factory building included large work halls were produce is packaged for a major supermarket chain and distributed to its stores throughout the UK. The building has offices, canteens, changing and locker areas, chills, laboratories, loading bays and extensive services installation of plant and equipment. The finishes throughout the building were to the highest hygienic specification and the facility was one of the first of this type constructed in Ireland.

Dromona Creamery Extension, Cookstown
The construction of a new Evaporator Plant at an existing dairy production factory. The contract involved reinforced concrete foundations & floors, with steel structure, cladding, blockwork, with hygienic wall and floor finishes. The project involved close coordination of the construction process between our site management team & Lorien Engineering, who were responsible for the installation of the production equipment. Such coordination was tested in particular when the evaporator plant had to be installed before the roof cladding was carried out.
