International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI)

International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI)

The International Livestock Research Institute is an international agricultural research institute based in Nairobi, Kenya, and founded in 1994 by the merging of the International Livestock Centre for Africa and the International Laboratory for Research on Animal Diseases.


Dortek's brief for this project in Africa was to provide a mixture of doors for large animal (livestock) holding facility for research, dairy yield and genetics. We were required to provide large, hygienic and strong doors needed for cattle and large livestock, with the additional feature that the doors need to be easily deep cleaned too.


What made the project interesting was that the ILRI is a large animal holding facility therefore we were required to make adequate preparation for the size of livestock that we would be providing for. Dortek fulfilled the expectations of the client and provided the ILRI with hygienic hinged doors and hinged fire doors.
