As contractor for the £5 million
Armagh City Centre Environmental Improvement Scheme, SIAC (NI) Ltd have
completed 15 months of the anticipated 21 month programme.
This high-specification scheme involves granite and limestone paving, street
lighting, road re-surface, street furniture and public art throughout 11
streets in Armagh City Centre.
To date all stakeholders involved in the project have been very impressed with
SIAC's delivery of all aspects of this scheme including project management,
public liaison and the quality of workmanship.
In relation to project management, SIAC (NI) has been commended for the
efficient operation they are delivering in what is a highly complicated public
realm scheme. The scheme is expected to be completed within budget and 6
months ahead of schedule in November 2009. This efficiency has been welcomed
by both the public and local businesses and has minimised the negative
publicity often associated with similar schemes.
At the recent launch of the Market Square phase of the scheme, representatives
from Armagh City and District Council and Armagh City Centre Management
commented that "all funders, interested parties and local businesses were
impressed with the quality workmanship and obvious attention to detail
consistently delivered by SIAC. We have been delighted to work with SIAC on
this scheme to date and would not hesitate to recommend the company for future
