State of the Art Facility

A state-of-the-art manufacturing site near Belfast has been upgraded and expanded as part of a £35 million investment programme. The work on the facility, situated on one of Northern Ireland’s green field sites, included the installation of flat oval ductwork fabricated from Kingspan KoolDuct Panels.

The Project

The 100,000 square foot factory has been carefully customised to the firm’s needs, allowing them to continue to provide innovative solutions within dynamic but cost effective settings. The development is set to benefit the local community with the creation of new opportunities for skilled workers in the aerospace field.

The most challenging issue was the short programme timescale in which we had to carry out the installation works. The ductwork incorporating Kingspan KoolDuct Panels did not require any secondary insulation, which meant it was great to install quickly. The product’s lightweight nature also meant that no additional steelwork was required to support it, which saved on construction time and also massively reduced the possibility of injury to our onsite operatives; particularly during high-level works.

Andrew Gilmore, Managing Director of cg3 Systems
Beattie Flanigan and Gilmore Engineering Services Ltd oversaw the mechanical and electrical specification on the project. For the ventilation ductwork they selected the flat oval, pre-insulated ductwork product, fabricated using premium performance Kingspan KoolDuct Panels. 

Ductwork fabricated from Kingspan KoolDuct Panels can reduce air–leakage rates to a fraction of those typical of rectangular sheet metal ductwork
