Clancy Construction’s origins date back to 1947. Today, the contractor plays a pivotal role in the development of Irish construction. Its personnel are recognised leaders in the Irish construction sector, helping to drive change, innovation and greater efficiency.
Innovation at Clancy
In recent years, Clancy invested in the necessary technology to integrate building information modelling (BIM) into its operations to enable its teams to work remotely, which facilitated the switching of its project management teams over to the virtual environment at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the beginning of Covid-19, Clancy negotiated and delivered two of the quickest fast-track construction projects ever to be completed in Ireland for HSE Estates. The two 24-bed isolation wards, at University Hospital Limerick and Croom Hospital, were built in 14 weeks and 17 weeks, respectively. It also completed work on Bloomfield, a multi-phase residential development of 154 units over 16 acres in Limerick, developed by its sister company Clancy Homes. In addition, it is completing the €6.5m restoration of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, with comprehensive works that include the refurbishment of cathedral roof with 2,500 new slates and kilometres of lead work, as well as the restoration of over 30 original clerestory window units.
Clancy approaches 2022 in a strong position, with an order book that is more than full for the rest of this year and filling up rapidly for next year.
John O’Shaughnessy, Managing Director, Clancy, acknowledges the contractor’s exceptional internal team and subcontractors. “Our teams have done a fantastic job over the past 18 months in enabling us to make our sites safer and more efficient,” John O’Shaughnessy comments. “As individuals, we still have responsibilities to stop the virus from spreading by continuing to follow Covid-19 guidelines. The industry has shown exceptional resilience and leadership so far. But other challenges lie ahead, including Brexit and increasing costs. We must remain vigilant and continue to adapt to meet what new challenges emerge.”
