  • It’s a Wrap! Manley’s crane leaves Drogheda skyline (Blog post 1st July 2014)
    2017-08-01 16:44:49

    Looking across the skyline of Drogheda you could not miss the Manley Construction crane that has been in situ since August 2013. Installed to build the new Arc Cinema on the top of Drogheda Town Centre, the crane was the first to be seen in the town for nearly seven years.

    With the cinema ready to open on 10th July, the familiar site of the crane disappeared from the Drogheda skyline on Sunday and marked the closing stages of this project for local firm Manley Construction.

    Whilst we went through a rigorous tendering process, it was also very important to us that a local firm would be engaged for this project. It was great to see Manley Construction from Duleek emerge successful from the bid process and to see such a huge local crew on the job” explained Karen Breheny, Property Manager for Melcorpo Commercial Properties Ltd.

    She continued “As owners of Drogheda Town Centre, our company has been part of the fabric of the local economy for nearly 30 years. The building of the new cinema represents a €6m investment for our company and a really strong endorsement of our belief in Drogheda.”

    Karen concluded “We are delighted to have worked with Manley Construction and all the other sub-contractors on the construction of this new state-of-the-art cinema. The calibre of their work, their efficiency and commitment has allowed us to bring our vision for a stunning new cinema to life and we hope that movie-goers all over the North East will love the Arc Cinema.
