New brewing facility for Diageo, Dublin

Expansion and modernisation of the brewing facilities

Our long relationship with Diageo dates back to the 1950s. Since then, we have worked on a broad range of projects both in Dublin and at other locations throughout Ireland.

This project comprises a significant expansion and modernisation of the brewing facilities at the Diageo/Guinness Brewery at St. James’ Gate, Dublin. The new three-stream Brew house and the expansion of the fermentation plant will almost double the capacity of the existing brewery to approximately 7m Hectolitres per annum.

We provided civil and structural engineering design for the new brew house and raw materials handling tower, fermentation plant extension, wastewater neutralisation and water treatment plant upgrades and strengthening works to the existing pipe racks. We have also been responsible for the design of the new process/surface/foul drainage systems at the north end of the site adjacent to the River Liffey.

 

The new brewery is the first-of-its-kind in Ireland and uses state of the art plant and processes to minimise energy consumption and greatly reduce environmental impact. The annual production capacity will be 5.4 million hectolitres with provision included for future expansion.

Production commenced in the new facility in July 2013.
