The Project

In conjunction with their ongoing relationship with Walls construction, O’Neills Mechanical & Electrical were engaged to provide the electrical installation for this development. Our Sligo branch, through their long-standing relationship with O’Neills, duly obliged to supply high end quality & innovative lighting solutions throughout this aparto accommodation.

On the back of this, bespoke lighting supply partners were engaged to provide  high-end lighting solutions that tied in well with the student environment throughout the building.

As can be seen from the images, a complete lighting solution was supplied by CT Electric Sligo and expertly installed by O’Neill Mechanical & Electrical. It is through this relationship that projects like this can result in a happy client being presented with a
complete electrical installation that will brilliantly benefit the end user, the student!
