The engineering and construction industry is a key indicator and driver of economic activity not only in Ireland but also globally. Ireland has enjoyed a period of exceptional economic growth over the past decade which has fuelled a significant construction sector boom. In the last year however the impact of uncertainty in financial markets has seen activity levels fall within the sector as margins increasingly come under pressure.
In addition the industry continues to face a range of both challenges and opportunities presented by the sustainability agenda, public-private partnerships, availability of natural resources, geographic expansion and security of the supply chain reflecting skills shortages in the sector and concern over the ability of specialist contractors to deliver.
