EOS IT Solutions’ Head Office, Banbridge

Client: EOS IT Solutions
Value: £3.25m

This project involved the construction of a new 20,000Sqft commercial 3 storey extension to provide CAT 'A' Head Office accommodation, fitted out to the highest standards with state of the art technology and additional warehouse space supporting the company's key operations in logistics.

Following appointment in early 2020, Killowen commenced on site at the start of March expecting a 39-week contract duration. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic was a major challenge and impacted the project on a number of issues. We were required to stand down for six weeks during lockdown and restarted on site in May 2020.

Maurice McGivern, Director Killowen Contracts, said:

Given the challenges encountered throughout the contract it is a pleasure to work with a forward-thinking client who realised the impact of the pandemic on the build. As a company, we were keen to deliver the project to the highest quality and within the timeframe set out, however the pandemic did impact the completion date.

We worked in collaboration with the design team: McAdam Stewart Architects, MJ Donnelly Quantity Surveyors, Bailie Associates and George Dawson Structural Engineers to ensure we met our client requirements and reduce any impact as much as possible.
