Positive Signs in the Construction Sector Recovery

It’s no secret that the Irish construction sector was a front seat passenger in the freight train that crashed headfirst into the recession.

Six of the top ten construction firms in 2006 were subsequently liquated and those that survived suffered devastating wounds. Although the scars remain, the companies that survived finally have a reason to smile at the positive figures published in the Special Report for 2015 by the Construction Information Services (CIS).

As mentioned in an article first published in the Irish Director magazine and featured on businessandleadership.com, the CIS Special Report details the “largest, active and ready to go projects for 2015”. There are 518 key projects with a total value of €11bn already in the pipeline.

CIS have obtained almost 55% of these project start dates which to date stands at a number of 284. 110 of these have already started and 242 are projected to start in the first half of this year.

 

 

 

This report, as well as our CIS online database are essential tools in helping companies to identify the project leads they need to build the momentum of their business once again, and enjoy a piece of the cake after what has been a tough few years of survival.

To date in 2015, CIS researchers have published over 600 major projects that have gone on site. This is up 50% on the equivalent period in 2014.

This report also contains the results of the 2014 National Housing Development Survey which, in line with wider signals of a recovering economy, indicates for the first time in four years, an increase in the numbers of active sites.
