Murcom recently completed two brand new turnkey private residential dwellings adjacent to each other on the same site in Ratoath Co. Meath. Both houses which were each approx. 2,800 sq. ft, were completed to an A2 BER standard and come with triple glazed windows, stone facing on the front elevations, limestone cills, Nibe Air to Water Heat Pumps with Underfloor Heating. We also completed all internal works which included Oak joinery, floor finishes and internal decoration.
This project consisted of the Fit-out of a grey box basement room at -3 level to provide a category 2 laboratory for the Dept of Biochemistry and Immunology at the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute.
The new works included new drylining and 60min internal walls, new suspended and metal framed ceilings, installation of new internal hygienic composite doors and frames, Trepsa lab furniture & storage units, various floor finishes and a full decoration throughout.
There was extensive Mechanical & Electrical works which broadly consisted of the LPHW & CHW installations, new fan coil units, plenums and associated duct-work and dampers, exhaust ventilation, HVAC Controls, laboratory drainage, installation of medical and lab gases, Cat 6 structured cabling, general power, access control, new lighting and lab gas detection systems.
As main contractor and PSCS, Murcom carried out the full internal fitout of a state of the Medical Centre, from an empty shell & core unit in Kinnegad town centre. The works consisted of the installation of 4 consultant medical suites, admin offices, reception and waiting areas, WC’s and canteen and tasked us with the installation of high end finishes, bespoke joinery, and considerable civil and drainage works. The use of colour added to the finished project allowing for a welcoming space for both patients and staff which we successfully delivered two weeks ahead of schedule.
This internal refurbishment began with extensive demolition before a fit-out of new offices and the creation of new circulation spaces. This included new floor finishes, ceilings and doors with extensive fire upgrade works. It also involved the installation of a passenger lift into a newly created lift pit and shaft walls.
Murcom undertook the careful refurbishment and restoration works of the roof of the TCD Boathouse which was built in 1836 and is situated on the River Liffey, in the picturesque setting of the War Memorial Park.
The extensive works consisted of the removal of the existing roof finishes, and replacement of same to replicate the original and repairs to existing timber work where timber beams were replaced as directed and as per originals. We installed new cast-iron rainwater goods, carried out dry-rot and wet-rot treatment of timbers, and insulated the entire attic space. We were also tasked with the repair of ornate plasterwork, ceilings and cornices on relevant ceiling areas. All works were carried out under the supervision of a conservation specialist.
Murcom were the main contractor & PSCS who coordinated and supervised the demolition of the former 2-storey credit union building and construction of a new state of the art building. There was extremely limited access to the site on all sides with limited storage for material on site. The project posed the typical challenges associated with a very tight programme and high quality expectations over 2 phases.
