Project Scope:

Tritech Engineering was appointed as mechanical & electrical services contractor for the development of a new manufacturing facility situated on Hewlett Packard’s Liffeypark Technology Campus, Leixlip, Co. Kildare. MGS Manufacturing Group is a leading global provider of optimized manufacturing solutions for high precision plastic products – with services including: engineering & design, mould making, injection moulding & value-added operations.

This project was delivered over 3 concurrent phases as follows;

Phase 1 – Manufacturing hall with services columns for 16 injection mounding machines.
Phase 2 – Manufacturing hall displacement ventilation system & 3 story office building.
Phase 3 – Extension of the process network including a clean room area.
Phase 5 – Expansion of the service column for total 32 machines & tool room.

Client vision/objectives:

The client objective was to have an installation approach that would facilitate future expansion of the operation as they secure new clients.

Unique challenges of the project:

The existing facility is a high bay warehouse structure with an extensive footprint. The client wanted to utilise the entire floor space for production and this created a challenge in routing services to the machine locations.

Tritech Methods/Innovations:

Tritech designed a modular column and gantry system to facilitate the mechanical, electrical, data and polymer services routes to each moulding machine location. This approach rationalised the services installation and created flexibility for modifying the production layout as required in the future.
