Bennett Construction constructed a new dryer, an evaporator and silo buildings for Lakeland Dairies on their existing site at Shercock Road, Bailieborough, Cavan. This new extension / dryer facility will increase their output of dried milk powder from an existing output of 5 tonnes per hour by an additional 7 tonnes per hour. This project consisted of demolition of an existing single storey store area, and removal of the concrete floors and relocation of existing fire escape stairs. Additional fire escape stairs were installed to facilitate the temporary construction phase of the works. The 38m high (5 storey) dryer building, adjacent evaporator and silo buildings were constructed of structural steel frame with cladding with wide slab floors and 2 number in situ concrete stair cores for overall frame stability. The buildings are supported on piles with integral ground beams and a suspended floor slab. Other ancillary works included storm, foul and effluent drainage and concrete yard works as well as an electrical switch room. Other works at the intake part of the Bailieborough site included piling and a concrete base for 8 new intake milk silos.
