CLIENT: Diageo

LOCATION: St. James Gate, County Dublin, Ireland


PROJECT: Phoenix St. James Gate (Subcontracted by John SISK & Sons to carry out all the underground drainage and hatch box installations)


Spectac International were subcontracted by John SISK & Sons to carry out all the underground drainage and hatch box installations for the new Brew house at St. James Gate Dublin for Project Phoenix.

Spectac International were awarded this project in April 2012 and it continued to the end of 2013.


There was a lot of large Nominal Bore Stainless Steel piping used on this project and some rather complicated angles and shapes of hatch boxes needed to be fabricated to a bespoke design. Spectac’s team carried this work out with great gusto and diligence.

Our team at Spectac carried out thorough site surveys from start to finish on this project before fabricating and installing any of the above to insure that all that was delivered to site was accurate and attention to detail was paramount.

Our facility in Dundalk was crucial in the prefabrication of the hatch boxes and pipework and our team of fabricators both on-site in Diageo and in Dundalk kept in close communication to ensure that all references were crossed checked. All pressure testing and x-raying were done off-site at our premises instead, in order to lessen the impact and disruption to DIAGEO’s site at St. James Gate.

Our pressure testing facility at Spectac International was used to our advantage on this project so that time was saved and materials that were sent to site were certified with both dye penetrate and pressure testing. Each item was certified and signed off both at Spectac International and on-site in DIAGEO Dublin.

Spectac International produced a detailed Quality procedure that was documented in detail for the client.
