Construction Sector

PQE emerged as a leading supplier of components to the construction sector during Ireland’s economic and construction boom. Like many other Irish companies, PQE’s contribution to the Aviva Stadium is a shining example of its work in this sector.

Aviva Stadium

PQE manufactured 2,000 unique components for Dublin’s Aviva Stadium project. Over half a million of these components were used to secure the external transparent polycarbonate cladding to the main structure, and to support the extensive array of gutters throughout the stadium.

A broad spectrum of materials was specified on this project; these included various grades of aluminium, mild steel and stainless steel.

Manufacturing and fabrication processes required included CNC Milling, CNC Turning, Saw Cutting, Plasma Profiling, Laser Cutting, Folding, Shot Blasting, Painting (including Powder Coat painting), Galvanising, Zinc Plating, and Anodizing.

“PQE have repeatedly enabled us to successfully complete projects on time and within budget. Additionally, when changes have been required due to changing specifications, or special requests, they have worked with us to make the necessary changes in a prompt and accurate manner. On the Aviva Stadium project, PQE exceeded our expectations at all times and provided unwavering service and dedication to our needs.”
