Geoscience Ireland (GI) is pleased to announce that it has joined the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) as a Corporate Member.
The CIF is the Irish construction industry’s representative body. It focuses on public capital spending programmes, public sector procurement contracts, policies and procedures , ensuring regulation is smart, targeted and effective, improving access to finance for SMEs, ensuring there are adequate skills to support growth and enhancing the reputation of the sector. The CIF also provides Safety & Health training and management.
Commenting on the move, Sean Finlay of Geoscience Ireland said;
“Membership of CIF will enable GI and its 28 member companies to have access to leading contractors which use geoscience and geoengineering design and delivery, both in Ireland and in international markets. GI’s range of specialist skills provide integrated solutions for contractors involved in infrastructure development and construction. Irish contractors are delivering major projects in the UK and the Gulf, key target markets for the GI business cluster and I look forward to a mutually productive relationship between both bodies.”
