AMS would like to congratulate MMD on the great news for the company, for Cork and for the construction industry, with the opening of its new €6 million headquarters in the Airport Business Park in Cork and the announcement of job opportunities for the industry. MMD and AMS have collaborated on projects for one another in recent times to create quality, functional and innovative projects. MMD was chosen as the main contractors for AMS during the expansion of its plant. MMD completed recent building works, including the construction of AMS’ new warehousing and press building, expanding its facility to 250,000 sq. ft. Subsequent to this development AMS was delighted when MMD decided to choose AMS systems for its new headquarters. AMS was pleased to offer its AMS MU800 Hi Curtain Walling, AMS TS66 Rebate doors and window systems and AMS Athena Window Adaptors for Kingspan Panels for the development of MMD’s thermally efficient and stylish HQ. The MU800 Hi Curtain Wall System is the latest offering available from AMS.

It is a high-performance mullion drained system offering sightlines of 55 mm, allowing greater spans and accommodating larger glazed units, making for impressive features and maximising light. The TS66 Rebated Door offers excellent performance characteristics, making it one of the more versatile and robust door systems on the market today.

Modern methods of construction call for a fast and speedy fabrication process of systems and installation on site and this is where the AMS Athena Window Adaptors for Kingspan Panels were utilised effectively. The MMD office development utilises the Kingspan insulated panel system which is built up around the main structural steelwork frame. Quality products, reliability and performance are very important to both MMD and AMS. This recent collaboration reinforces the company values at AMS, who commented: “We look forward to many more occasions where MMD and AMS work collaboratively to provide the highest quality building solutions into the future.”
