Mannok’s Precast Team Deliver on RIAI’s Public Building of the Year, Donegal Garda Station

3rd September 2021

Mannok’s Precast team are proud to be part of a successful design and construction team involved in RIAI’s 2021 Public Building of the Year, Donegal Garda Station.

The €2.5million refurbishment and extension project of the two-storey existing building in Donegal Town was completed in 2020. Designed by Rhatigan Architects and construction works completed by Boyle Construction, Mannok was selected to complete all Precast concrete works on the project, which included six custom-built staircase units and all precast landings.

The Developer availed of Mannok’s end to end service offering on the project, which meant a collaborative approach to success was in operation long before any manufacturing or installation took place, beginning with Mannok’s full design and value engineering process.

Led by the company’s most experienced Engineers, the Mannok team worked in partnership with all key stakeholders to precision plan and safely execute all installation works on the project. Timing is critical to the success of any project and the speed of installation coupled with Mannok’s “just in time” deliveries closely co-ordinated with on-site partners, all contributed to the safe and efficient completion of works, on time, on budget, and to the client’s specification.
