Creagh land £5m University Contract

Creagh Concrete, which last year announced it’s most successful year since the downturn in 2008, and the creation of 100 new jobs, has announced the first in what it says will be a series of new contracts.

The Toomebridge based concrete products manufacturer has won the prestigious contract to build a new library in Roehampton, just outside London. The library will be situated within the University of Roehampton Complex and work begins in April. The contract runs for 35 weeks, with Creagh Concrete having been involved with the project for over a year and half. The project will see the family owned company construct an architecturally exposed concrete frame with brick-faced precast panel façade.

Announcing the contract, Creagh Concrete Managing Director, Seamus McKeague, said this announcement was the first of many this year.

“Creagh is entering 2016 in confident mood, and we are pleased to announce this prestigious contract at the University of Roehampton. We’ve been involved in a previous similar project with the architect, Feilden Clegg Bradley, on the new Manchester Metropolitan University Student Union building, and look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with them. We’re also pleased to be working with contractor Geoffrey Osborne, with whom we are forging a great working relationship. We hope to make more significant announcements in the coming weeks and months as Creagh Concrete develops its range of contracts and expertise.”

The company is also working on a range of exciting projects across the UK, such as a £3 million flooring project at the new Ulster University campus, a £2.1 million car park in Leeds and a £1million new school project in London. It will also announce further infrastructure and construction projects in the coming months.

As part of its strategic objectives, the business will invest considerably across its multiple sites in the coming 5 years, with plans for further job creation as the business continues to grow.

Creagh Concrete has a number of specialist divisions working within each sector of the construction industry. The company’s core product range is precast structural products and prestressed flooring, with an extensive range of flooring systems designed for commercial or residential applications. The company employs 650 full time staff and sub-contractors, across its 7 locations, and completed over 3,000 contracts of varying sizes in 2015.
