CCS signs up first Irish site

Family owned John Sisk & Son has become the first contractor to register sites in Ireland with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

The first site is located at The Exchange, which forms part of the International Financial Services Centre at the heart of Dublin’s financial district. This project involves the construction of a six-storey office block with a basement car park and two retail units at street level.

CCS says it has received increasing interest from contractors in Ireland asking to register construction activity.

Sisk led a pilot to help ensure that this model of registration within the Irish construction industry was appropriate and fully tried and tested, before making it available to all construction activity in Ireland.

The move comes as Ireland continues its recovery following the 2008 recession and output, new orders and employment all continue to gather pace.

CCS chief executive Edward Hardy said: “The opportunity for contractors to now register sites in Ireland is a huge step forward for the Considerate Constructors Scheme. With over 18,000 monitoring visits to UK-based sites, companies, and suppliers every year, the Scheme is highly regarded across the construction industry as a central part of instigating positive long-lasting change, for the benefit of the workforce, local communities and the environment.

“We are delighted to now be able to provide monitoring and support services to Irish-based construction sites to help raise their standards beyond statutory requirements – pushing the bar of considerate construction to a new level in Ireland.”
