2003 The year 2003 sees the completion of the controversial Spire in Dublin’s O’Connell St. Designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, the ﬁrst section was installed on 18 December 2002 with construction of the sculpture delayed because of difﬁculty in with planning permission and environmental regulations. At dusk, the base of the monument is lit and the top 10m (33 ft) is illuminated via 11,884 holes through which light-emitting diodes shine. Also in 2003, T Bourke is appointed the mechanical contractor on the Department of Agriculture’s new laboratory complex in Backweston, Celbridge. This project is one of the largest of its type with the mechanical value alone coming in at F20 million for a 24-month period. It was a complicated project due to the scale and complexity of services required, but one that T Bourke delivered without a hitch. Established in 1968, today T Bourke is one of Ireland’s leading mechanical and electrical contractors. The company has a reputation for high-quality installations with experience across all industry sectors including commercial, process and pharmaceutical.
