GO WEST: Farrans opens new offices In Sligo and Letterkenny as long-term contracts secured in West of Ireland

LEAVING civil engineering and building contractor Farrans Construction has opened new offices in Sligo and Letterkenny following the signing of a number of new contracts which will provide a secure pipeline of work in the west of Ireland for the next seven years.

Both offices will be strategic hubs from which work across the counties in the North West of Ireland will be managed.

Farrans was recently awarded the North West region under Uisce Éireann‘s new Water and Waste Water Multi-Supplier Framework, responsible for Donegal, Sligo, Roscommon, Galway, Cavan, Leitrim, Monaghan and Mayo.

The company already has 70 direct staff and over 200 subcontractor staff engaged in this new contract, with 25 squads on the ground working on the installation of new water mains, the rehabilitation of existing mains, leak detection and repairs. Waste water and connection and developer services will commence soon.

John Murphy, Utilities Director at Farrans Construction, said: “We have had a presence in Sligo and Letterkenny for many years and, with the ongoing volume of work, we are now in a position to invest in our office facilities to expand our presence in the region. We already have a main office in Monaghan and a satellite administration office in Tuam in Galway. We want to establish the right bases to manage our activity in the North West. We know that this framework approach will deliver better results for the end users, customers and our people. Sustainability, social value and safety are at the heart of every project that we do and these values align with our client, Uisce Eireann.

“Our focus in Sligo and Letterkenny will be on building excellent relationships with local suppliers and council authorities. The demand for skills in the water sector in Ireland is continuing to grow. We will soon be launching a recruitment drive to bring in some of the best civil engineering talent and, with the security of a long-term pipeline, we can offer guaranteed work in the area for years to come. This will likely appeal to people who might want to move back to Ireland, to come home. It’s a competitive recruitment market at the moment however we know that we offer an unrivalled personal development and training programme which is why we were recently named Engineers’ Ireland CPD Employer of the Year.” he added.For more information visit:
