NUIG determined to progress on halted building works

NUI Galway is determined that progress can continue to be made on four separate building projects which were ‘shut down’ by NAMA.

Last week a receiver was appointed to Michael McNamara & Co, the main contractor for the construction of a number of the buildings at the university. There are now concerns over the future of the 300 sub-contractors working on the site and the future of the developments themselves.

Meetings will also be taking place this week with representatives of the receiver and others. In a statement this week, NUI, Galway said it is “working towards ensuring that progress on the contracts is maintained”.

“While the university’s primary objective is to secure a rapid return to work on the affected sites,” said a spokesperson for the university, “it will remain conscious of the position of sub-contractors in any discussions on the arrangements for such a return to work.”
