Roadbridge is a global civil engineering contractor founded in 1967. It specialises in the collaborative delivery of international infrastructure projects across all sectors. Its core ethos is to exceed client expectations across all disciplines through the strengths and experience of its people.
Conor Gilligan, CEO, Roadbridge, says that the challenges presented by Covid-19 during 2020 were efficiently managed by the company as its existing systems allowed for continuous improvements through effective communication with its workforce. “We don’t settle on any one policy for too long,” explains Conor Gilligan. “We are continuously reviewing and adjusting our systems and policies to keep health and safety at the forefront of everybody’s thinking. Covid-19 placed new demands on the business in 2020, but we found it quite easy to innovate as we already had our integrated management system in place to facilitate engagement between management and staff on a continual basis. This means that any new directives or initiatives can be integrated seamlessly into the business.”
Current projects in Ireland include the prestigious North Runway at Dublin Airport; Dublin Port Framework; N4 Colooney to Castlebaldwin road improvement scheme, Sligo; Great Southern Greenway, Limerick; Coonagh to Knockalisheen Distributor Road scheme, Limerick and a Facebook data centre in Clonee, Co Meath.
Internationally, the contractor is currently on site on various sections of HS2 high-speed railway link between London, the midlands, the north of England and Scotland; phase three of Beinn an Turic Windfarm, Scotland; Sandy Knowe Windfarm, Scotland; phase four of Port of Cromarty Firth, Invergordon, Scotland; East Anglia One – Scottish Power Renewables – Ipswich, England; West Cumbria Water Supply, United Utilities, England; Seagreen cable installation, Carnoustie, Scotland; the A465 motorway PPP project in Wales; and Project Aura Windfarm in Sweden.
Conor Gilligan says that Roadbridge’s outlook is highly positive for the coming years. “Our order book is secured for the next three years, and the future is bright. The top three projects secured over the past year are the N5 Ballaghaderreen Bypass, the Coonagh to Knockalisheen Northern Distributor Road in Limerick, and the A465 motorway PPP project in Wales. We will also be starting further projects in both Ireland and the UK over the course of 2021.”
