A Bespoke Door and Washroom Solution for the New DEARA Headquarters
JP Corry continued their strong working partnership with building contractors, TH Turkington, on the development of the new headquarters for the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DEARA).
The new £12 million facility involved the relocation of DEARA’s headquarters to Ballykelly and spans over 3 storey offices with the capacity for 600 workers.
JP Corry provided an impressive range of internal doorsets which added a strong aesthetic appeal to the project. Working to the Architects, WDR&RT Taggart, specifications JP Corry were able to offer a bespoke quarter cut cherry veneer door with fitted Acrovyn kick plates, along with the required acoustic and fire ratings. The company also supplied a complete washrooms package, comprising of custom-built cubicles, IPS system and vanity units - all installed by JP Corry.
“We have a great working relationship with TH Turkington having worked with them on numerous projects previously. With our Coleraine based branch, H&T Bellas, a few miles from the site, we were able to deliver products as soon as they were required which ensured deadlines were met in a timely manner” said Leonard Rossborough, JP Corry Doors and Washrooms Manager.
“This was a fantastic project to be involved in and a great example of how we use our experience and expertise to provide a door and washrooms solution that meets the client’s needs” he added.
JP Corry displayed the company’s flexibility by adapting production schedules to accommodate the contractor’s schedule of works and working firmly to the timelines throughout the project.
Completed in June 2018, the new facility for DEARA makes history as it is the first time a government department has relocated its headquarters to a rural area in Northern Ireland.
