We were delighted to be awarded 'Construction Company of the Year' at the annual Plant & Civil Engineer Awards last night for the second time in 3 years during a glittering ceremony, compered by television and radio sports presenter Adrian Logan, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast.
Over the past 43 years, Creagh Concrete has grown to become one of the most innovative manufacturers of concrete products and a leader in its markets for a diverse range of sectors throughout Ireland and the UK.

The current pace of change in offsite technology and the emergence of new construction options is unprecedented. Creagh Concrete is in that mix, representing a combination of innovation with a solid track record in offsite manufacturing.
Creagh are championing the use of precast concrete through the application of their Rapidres fastrack build system, which is currently winning residential apartment projects of up to 22 storeys.

Creagh design, manufacture and install the complete structure.
The total frame solution comprises of structural walls and solid or hollowcore flooring and construction speed is greater than alternative systems. Units are manufactured offsite ensuring the desired quality is met and can be left for direct decoration if required. M&E can be incorporated into the production process for all types of services.
Creagh Concrete’s latest construction projects includes Circle Square, a six-storey hotel atop of a 9-storey carpark in Manchester and St. Martin’s Place, a 17-storey premium residential development in Birmingham both due for completion soon.
