The job was done in several phases and all handed

The new Shell Corrib gas facility in the Erris region of Co. Mayo on the west coast of Ireland is one of the first of its kind in this country. The plant was built to process gas sourced 83 KM off the west coast.

Deane Roofing & Cladding were engaged by Kilcawley Construction to install the roofing and cladding systems to a number of specialised buildings spread throughout the site. Each building had a particular function in the gas process and therefore no two buildings were the same.  

The cladding systems were not complicated, but the environment, height, access and air tightness created abnormal challenges which made for a complicated project.

The formation of roof slopes and cladding extensions above the main roof levels, such as 6m exhaust towers, made it difficult for hoisting and distribution of the panels into position.

This was made more complex by the phasing of various parts of the same building, resulting in partially complete elevations and roofs.

We worked closely with Kilcawleys Construction to ensure that the envelope was completed in accordance with the progress of the pipework entering and exiting the building.

The weathering of the process pipework was extremely difficult. The mix of material types, multiple sizes of pipes and cables, and varying surface temperatures requiring provision for expansion and contraction made the weathering of penetrations extremely complicated.

The working space after pipes were installed added significant weight to the challenge. There were no textbook solutions possible and all opes had to be designed specifically for their location and the nature of the pipe coming through the cladding. The simplest of applications had to bespoke.

We successfully weathered, sealed and achieved all buildings to the water and airtight standards set out in the specification.

Our Projects


I have worked and am currently working very closely with Deane Roofing and Cladding on a large high specification Biotechnology construction project. Their commitment to meet the very high expectations in quality, safety and schedule is second to none. They are very committed to reaching these expectations and surpassing them. They are very easy to work with on day to day construction issues and work diligently to ensure they deliver a top class project to all concerned.

Brennan Associates, Quantity Surveyors have worked on many projects with Deane Roofing and Cladding where they were specialist subcontractors for the Roofing and Cladding elements. Each project has been unique in its own way challenging the Design Team and Contractors alike. In these situations, we have found their team to be engaging, responsive, and technically proficient in resolving issues as they arose.

They have always maintained a high standard of workmanship, management, budget control and coordination with meticulous attention to detail being exerted throughout the projects. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for commercial roofing and cladding projects.
