Interview with Alan Jordan, Project Manager, Cronin Movers Group
How important is the construction sector for your business?
The heavy lift division of Cronin Movers relies heavily on the construction sector. Our team are very ‘solutions focused’ and many of the jobs we undertake in this sector come from the daily question raised on a construction site “how do we move that from there to there?’. We have a great range of heavy lifting kit to undertake small and mid-size jobs and given the depth of our team, can respond quickly to the requests of engineers and site managers. As one site manager said recently ‘you’re like yer man James Taylor’ before singing “I just call out your name and I know wherever you are, you’ll come running….”
Do you specialise in any way for the Irish construction sector?
We’ve built a reputation for moving heavy intricate materials that include the likes of The Christ the King Statue which we moved from Dun Laoghaire Park to make way for the building of the new library https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cf86_-xIPgE, and Industrial generator moving and electrical system installs for Stewart Construction on-site at the newly built section of Beaumont Hospital.
The reputation we have gained is due to the care we bring to our work, but the reality is that we bring that care to every project. Up to 20 tonne is where we shine, but are happy to manage any size project given our alliance with many international providers of heavy lift equipment to fulfil client needs. We’re very conscious of health/safety and compliance issues and this is very much part of our internal value system and culture.
We read about so many large projects being completed, large data centres for example, are there any similar projects that you have been involved in recently?
It’s been fantastic to see the Irish construction sector start to flourish again on the back of many hard years for the industry. Thankfully, our historical reputation and excellence in delivery saw us through the down turn and we’re starting to see significant increases in demand for our services in the past twelve months. We are currently involved with the new €200m Facebook Data centre development in Clonee, Co. Meath, providing technical machine moving, and office relocation requirements. We are also involved in the €11m development for RCSI Education and Research Centre at Beaumont Hospital.
