Tracey Brothers

Based in Drumlyon, Enniskillen, Tracey Brothers Ltd is a building and civil engineering contactor with a fantastic reputation for delivering stunning projects within the construction industry.

The company delivers an array of schemes – from the award-winning SS Nomadic project to the construction of a new research building for the University of Dundee – and does so with skill, experience and commitment to its work.

Tracey Brothers Ltd worked on the £5 million SS Nomadic project from April 2012 until May 2013. The two-phase project implemented by SS Nomadic Charitable Trust saw Tracey Brothers Ltd restore the 100-year old vessel back to its former glory, along with the restoration of Hamilton Dock.

In October 2014, Tracey Brothers Ltd was recognised for its work on the SS Nomadic project with a much sought-after award – the Construction Excellence Award. The prestigious accolade was presented to the Tracey Brothers Ltd following the successful restoration of the Titanic’s supply ship – a rewarding project in itself – and its involvement on Hamilton Dock.

The Hamilton Dock phase of the works comprised the restoration of the dry dock where the Nomadic is situated.

Tracey McGovern, John Tracey and Seamus Mulligan were on hand to pick up the accolade at the official awards ceremony. The Chairman of the Nomadic Preservation Society, David Scott-Beddard praised Tracey Brothers Ltd’s involvement on the project.

Meanwhile, Tracey Brothers Ltd’s work for the University of Dundee comprised the construction of a four-storey research centre for the Scottish university. The £10.2 million project included the creation of laboratories and associated office space.

A more recent project for Tracey Brothers Ltd was the refurbishment of the Parliament Buildings in Belfast. The project comprised the restoration of the building’s roof – the first major work to take place on the roof since the 1940s.

John Tracey of Tracey Brothers Ltd, said:

“We were delighted to have been awarded the contract for the repair of the Parliament Buildings’ roof, working in partnership with Hamilton Architects and the Assembly Commission on this magnificent building.”
