Conack is a general building and civil engineering contractor founded in 2008 by joint managing directors Kieran Cusack and Tom O’Connor.
With its headquarters in Limerick, Conack has regional offices in Cork, Dublin, and Galway. The company employs over 200 people directly. Conack delivers specialist construction solutions to public and private sector clients. Operating across multiple sectors, recently, it has completed works across residential, commercial, healthcare, offices, civic, hospitality, education, retail, pharmaceutical and medical, design and build, and office fit-out sectors.
Conack takes a collaborative approach to project delivery, working closely with clients, staff and its supply chain to ensure projects are delivered efficiently and in a sustainable manner. Kieran Cusack explains how this approach to project delivery has worked for the contractor, its clients and supply chain. “We provide a personal service and pay great attention to the detail of every project. We embrace innovation in materials, construction methods and design, and we incorporate this in all of our projects.” He continues: “Our motto is to build better together. This means our clients, design teams, construction teams and supply chain are recognised as stakeholders in project delivery. By taking this approach, we have established our ability to compete at all levels with both tier-1 and tier-2 contractors.”
Conack Construction Projects
Conack is currently working on two residential developments in Dublin, Cherrywood TC1 (€90m), consisting of community and employment facilities, retail and 530 residential units. The €50m Lisieux Park development will provide 200 apartments, a creche and amenity facilities.
Conack has been transitioning to digital construction techniques over the past number of years. Tom O’Connor explains, “The early-stage use of building information modelling (BIM) data on any project can show the complete building life cycle. Conack is committed to BIM, as it creates transparency throughout the project process as an accurate representation of the project as it is progressed. We are currently pursuing our BIM Level 2 ISO accreditation as part of our 2023 objectives and targets.” Conack uses Procore, a cloud-based site management platform. Procore construction software manages a construction project from planning to handover. The platform connects every project contributor, including specialist contractors, design team members and client representatives. The ability to communicate across teams makes it easier to collaborate using a single common-data environment. Conack also uses the Causeway tendering package, which has helped it manage projects and growth successfully.
In closing, Kieran Cusack says, “As our staff are the heart of our business, their full engagement and alignment to the company’s core values and productivity has enhanced the company’s growth.”
