Civil engineering and building contractor Farrans Construction has opened new offices in Sligo and Letterkenny.

The move follows the signing of new contracts which will provide a secure pipeline of work in the west of Ireland for the next seven years.

Both offices will be strategic hubs from which work across the counties in the north west of Ireland will be managed.

Farrans was recently awarded the North West region under Uisce Éireann‘s new Water and Waste Water Multi-Supplier Framework, responsible for Donegal, Sligo, Roscommon, Galway, Cavan, Leitrim, Monaghan and Mayo.

The company already has 70 direct staff and more than 200 subcontractor staff working on this new contract, with 25 squads on the ground working on the installation of new water mains, the rehabilitation of existing mains, leak detection and repairs. 

Waste water and connection and developer services will start soon.

John Murphy, utilities director at Farrans Construction, said: “We have had a presence in Sligo and Letterkenny for many years and, with the ongoing volume of work, we are now in a position to invest in our office facilities to expand our presence in the region. 

“We already have a main office in Monaghan and a satellite administration office in Tuam in Galway. 

“We want to establish the right bases to manage our activity in the North West. 

“We know that this framework approach will deliver better results for the end users, customers and our people. Sustainability, social value and safety are at the heart of every project that we do and these values align with our client, Uisce Eireann.”

The company is planning to launch a recruitment drive to increase its staff numbers in the area.
