GEM construction was the main contractor for Timoney Technology’s new corporate Head Office at the IDA Business Park, Johnstown, Navan, Co. Meath.

A Test Rig for Armoured Vehicles

Timoney Technology is Ireland’s leading producer of heavy duty trucks and military vehicles. The company is one of the world’s major developers of special vehicle applications. Their new headquarters needed to include a warehouse and test rig for large vehicles such as armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and articulated dump trucks.

Office Accommodation with Ecological Features

Extending over 1500 square metres, the single-storey office building is walled with integrated panels of brickwork, aluminum curtain walling and composite architectural panels. The foyer features a polished concrete floor with planar glazing onto open planted courtyard areas. Internally, offices and meeting rooms are separated by glazed partitions. The building saves energy and conserves water using solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system.

Testing Facility

Designed to handle the very large vehicles in which Timoney specialises, the high bay warehouse and test rig building includes

  • 5-metre-deep test pit
  • gantry crane
  • underground attenuation tank
  • assembly area


Externally, the building is set in a large landscaped area with lighting and car parking.
