Mercury were delighted to secure the MEP and Fire Protection packages on such a prestigious, landmark project as the Kerry Global Technology & Innovation Centre (GTIC), Millennium Business Park, Naas, Co Kildare. Mercury’s works ran from September 2013 with a handover date in January 2015.

As well as securing the major services installation packages on the project, Mercury were also the lead BIM coordinator. From the early stages of the project the client and the design consulting team, HGA | GIRE | RKD | ARUP| BSP embraced Mercury’s innovation concepts for pre-fabrication and modular installation methods. Mercury combined the installation with traditional methods whilst utilising the latest technologies available to the market, the likes of which have never been implemented on an Irish construction site before.

  • Modularisation and prefabrication riser
  • Wago prewired trunking
  • Pre wired AHU’s, plug and play BMS
  • BIM 360 Glue & Field
  • Prefabricated spools for Fire Protection.

This method of first class engineering solution formulated in the installation of vertical risers and horizontal distribution arriving to site in prefabricated modules ready for immediate installation. The modules consists of all mechanical, electrical services distribution from the Energy Centre in “Block D” to the risers in “Block C”, “B” and “A”.

Mercury further demonstrated the value of this efficient construction approach by installing prefabricated ductwork and pipework modules, (complete with insulation, controls, valves, etc) into “Block A”, building “Offices”. The modules arrived to site ready to be lifted directly into place. Mercury’s methodology also included pre-wired modular containment, this was delivered to site in 3m lengths complete with brackets, containment, wiring and basket to cater for our ICT/FA cabling.

The project was awarded the following awards:

* Irish Construction Industry Awards 2015 – Winner; Commercial Project of the Year

* Irish Construction Industry Awards 2015 – Winner; Industrial Project of the Year

* Irish Construction Industry Awards 2015 – Finalist; Overall Excellence in Construction Award
