Status: Completed

Location: Greysteel

Division: Building Products, Drainage & Water Management

Main Contractor: OB Construction

Market Sector: Commercial


The Portglenone-based construction company, OB Construction is building a new filling station, shop and car park in Greysteel on behalf of nicholl fuel oils ltd. OB Construction is utilising FP McCann’s precast concrete drainage and building products for the build which is due to be completed christmas 2019.

FP McCann’s Bradley’s Quarry in Kilrea supplied the building products for this project. Approximately 25,000 concrete blocks were provided for the build, with the majority being 9×4 10N concrete blocks along with 6×4 soap bars and 15N concrete bricks. Also, 60 precast concrete lintels were supplied, ranging in size from 140mm x 100mm to 215mm x 100mm. All precast lintels and blocks were dispatched and delivered on the same stock load.

The associated drainage products for the build were supplied from FP McCann’s precast factory in Knockloughrim just outside Magherafelt. This consisted of DN1200 Easi-Base™ manhole bases along with 375mm x 750mm precast concrete gullies and both DN900 and DN1200 manhole rings, complete with the associated cover slabs.

Speaking on behalf of OB Construction, site foreman Andrew Kelly says, “FP McCann provided an efficient delivery service from both the Knockloughrim and Kilrea depots and all products received were of high quality. Having used FP McCann’s Easi-Base™ manhole bases for the first time, I found these extremely fast and simple to construct.”
