Irish food wholesaler shops for steel

Posted on by in News

Requiring 1,000t of structural steelwork, a new distribution centre is being erected for the Musgrave Group at Kilcock in County Kildare.

Measuring 120m-long × 100m-wide and 19.5m-high, the steel-framed structure consists of three equal spans formed with 686 × 254 × 125UB roof rafters.

Working on behalf of CField Construction, the steelwork is being fabricated, supplied and erected by Kiernan Structural Steel.

The completed warehouse will include dock levellers along two elevations, a two-storey office block, a two-storey goods-in office and a further single storey transport office.

Founded in 1876, Musgrave Group is said to be Ireland’s largest grocery distributor with estimated annual sales of approximately £4bn.
