Procap Manufacturing Plant

Bennett were appointed Main Contractor on the construction of a new manufacturing and warehousing facility in Greystones, Co Wicklow for Procap Wicklow Plastics Ltd.

Procap relocated their existing premises in Newtownmountkennedy (NMK), Co Wicklow to their new premises which has been handed over in four Phases which allowed Procap to move their manufacturing machines from NMK and begin manufacture in Greystones while still in operation in NMK.  This avoided any plant closures and manufacturing was 100% in Greystones before Christmas 2012.

This project was built on a green field site which was procured from the IDA and is circa 2.82 Ha in size.  The development consists of a building of approx 7,800m2 which is predominantly a single storey high bay building split between manufacturing and warehousing.  Part of the building is two storey incorporating stepped roofing for concealment of roof plant. 
The form of the building is that of concrete piled foundations, insitu floor slab with structural steel frame clad in a combination of composite cladding systems and curtain walling elements.  

Internal ‘clean production’ areas with gantry cranes linking the production areas with adjoining warehousing with racking system, ancillary office/staff accommodation and ESB Substation form the scope of works.

The external associated landscaping, car parking, external vehicular marshalling and service areas with 6 no material silos also forms part of the works.  

The fast track programme was the key factor in the successful completion of the project.  As the client was moving from the existing facility to their new plant on a Phased basis there was no room for delays to the programme and manufacture dates had to be met.

Service co-ordination was another major factor with Mechanical, Electrical, Sprinkler, Process Cooling and Central Feed Systems all being installed at the same time in the services zones.  One of the main aspects was the relocation of some of the Clients equipment from NMK and to coordinate this relocation with the delivery and installation of the new equipment to allow for Commissioning and Validation of systems
