Praise for Felix O’Hare & Co

Local Newry based contractor Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd received two awards at UK wide celebration of excellence in construction and computing at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London

Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd spearheaded the construction of the new £35m Southern Regional College Armagh Campus, which will facilitate students and staff in a brand-new, state-of-the-art complex.

This project was awarded runner up in the category for “UK BIM Project of the Year” and won “UK Collaboration Project of the Year” at the Construction Computing Awards 2019. As a project mandating BIM Level 2, the team had to innovate, changing processes and workflows to comply with this relatively new way of working. The award is a testament to the fantastic teamwork on the project and how well the team adapted to the many changes, when compared with traditional construction and as a result the project is reaping the benefits.

Rori Millar, Head of Digital Construction at Felix O’Hare & Co, said, “Our project management team, site team, sub- contractors and client have embraced a new way of working where innovation is paramount. We have used Dalux to capture and manage all project information such as drawings, documents, models and general issues on site. It has been a fantastic tool that has allowed true collaboration between all project stakeholders and this award demonstrates this.”

Members of their digital construction department, Rori Millar and William Adams, attended the ceremony on behalf of the team and accepted the award along with Dalux representatives Michael Romero-Sanz and Laura Knights.
