Having completed the first phase in 2014 Duggan Brothers (Contractors) Ltd have now added to this by successfully completing the DFTC secure storage compound for the Irish Defence Forces, on the Curragh Camp Co. Kildare.
The works took 12 months to complete which was well ahead of the 24-month contract duration. This was achieved by the introduction of an innovative precast concrete structural solution which offered greater efficiencies on site, whilst ensuring the highest standards of quality finish were achieved.
The works included the decommissioning of the existing ammunitions buildings and the construction of 18 new secure storage units to store hazardous explosive materials at the Curragh Camp plus extensive external works and concrete aprons.
The works were constructed in a secure military controlled zone which had to be actively managed to ensure that the strict security protocols were maintained.
Furthermore, access to the works had to pass through the heart of the busy Curragh Camp campus. This involved close liaison with the Department of Defense officials and Design Team members to ensure successful delivery of the project.
The significantly earlier project completion added significantly to the achievement of this goal.
