Contract Period:  April 2017 – August 2018


Northway Mushroom Plant is a new compost facility in Ballygawley, Co. Tyrone. McAleer & Teague are the main contractor on the project and McMackin Contracts were subcontracted to complete all siteworks which included bulk earthworks, drainage, ducting, mud-matting, HDPE pipework, pile-cutting, various concrete works, kerbing, bulk filling of stone and fill material, stoning of roads, and piling platforms etc.

The project was a green field site which required over 45,000m3 to be excavated and disposed off-site. The entire site was concreted including roads, yards etc. with all dirty/clean water drained to separate filtration systems. All drainage throughout the site had to be sealed due to the factory day-to-say use and risk of fumes/dirty water.
