Dungiven Sports Centre


Forming a strong partnership with main contractor, P&K McKaigue, and consultant, Williams & Shaw, the company produced a match-winning performance to complete the new Dungiven Sports Centre.
The opening of the new sports centre and FIFA-certified 3G pitch has proven a big hit with the local community, providing people living in the town and local vicinity with a much needed spacious, modern and accessible facility.

Successfully delivered under the NEC Short Form contract for Causeway Coast and Glens Council, the project consists of a main pavilion area incorporating four changing rooms and shower areas with male, female and disabled facilities. It also provides a state-of-the-art fitness suite, dance studio, toilets (including disabled and accessible), plant room, cleaner’s store and switch room. A 10m high sports space, where visitors can play indoor soccer, basketball or netball, is the icing on the cake for this fantastic project.

For McCorley Mechanical Ltd, the benefits of teamwork were on show throughout this project.
“The overall team on the job was superb and that makes all the difference,” explained John McCorley, Director. “The job was superbly designed by Williams & Shaw and with great co-operation from P&K McKaigue, everything ran according to plan.

“We had a tight construction deadline to meet and while no job is ever without its challenges, anything we did face was sorted out really quickly.”
One issue readily rectified through clear lines of communication was the placing of the cold water storage tank and one of the AHUs which had to be craned into a first floor plantroom before the roof was completed.

McCorley Mechanical also had to put in some additional preparation work ahead of the installation of the radiant panels while the height of the flue had to be extended to 15m as a safety measure due to
the orientation of the roofs.

“We have a very experienced team and we are happy to complete work across a range of sectors.”

The mechanical work at Dungiven Sports Centre project included a full LPHW heating system and mains water boosted domestic services installation, that included new oil-fired condensing boilers, two air-handling units and associated ductwork as well as solar thermal collectors.

“No-one tried to over-complicate matters on the job and that is why it ran so smoothly,” added John.

This straightforward approach has helped McCorley Mechanical Ltd grow into a respected mechanical contractor.

The company works on commercial and industrial projects across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and recently started work on a project in Scotland for the first time.

Established by John’s father, Pat – who is still heavily involved in the company – McCorley Mechanical Ltd’s ability to diversify has ensured strong order books.

“We have a very experienced team and we are happy to complete work across a range of sectors,” explained John. “Whether it is restoration work of listed buildings or a new build commercial project, we have the in-house knowledge to complete this work to the highest standards.”
