SCSI Report Forecasts a Positive Upturn in Construction Output

Brick Layer

The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) have published a positive report that shows construction output of €11bn in 2014, a 10% increase in volume. These figures are predicted to rise to €12.5bn in 2015 and €15.3bn in 2016.

The report also addresses the concern that construction costs and taxes are driving up the cost of house building, amounting to approximately 20% of the total. The SCSI urged the Government's Construction 2020 Strategy to press forward to aid this welcomed turnaround in a sector that bore the violent brunt of the economic crash.

Your business can get a share in the growing opportunities with the help of CIS Online. 

CIS is an online database that contains researched, up-to-date information on all significant building projects for Ireland, North and South.

A STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO USING CIS ONLINE

CIS Online Figure 1.1

Click on the location you want to focus on (see figure 1.2). There are two options here; Ireland and Northern Ireland.

CIS Online Figure 1.2

You can streamline your search by selecting one or more project stages that’s you’re interested in (see figure 1.3). Construction companies would want to know about the ‘Plans Granted’ or ‘Tender’ stages whereas an outfitting company could make a note on the system to contact the architect/project manager when the project is on-site based on the estimated duration of the build.

CIS Online Figure 1.3

Your next option is to narrow down your project search by highlighting only the price range your company is interested in (see figure 1.4). As we’re using ‘Education’ as our category, we can include a price range that would cover a small extension to a complete build.

CIS Online Figure 1.4

Based on the value range you selected, you can determine whether your project preferences are ‘Small Scale’ or ‘Large scale’ or maybe the medium value of ‘Both Large and Small Scale’ (see figure 1.5).

CIS Online Figure 1.5

You can decide to view only projects that were updated from between a week to six months ago or between dates you select yourself (see figure 1.6).

CIS Online Figure 1.6

If you’re happy with your selection you can click the ‘Search’ button or click on ‘Display more Search Fields’ to streamline your search further. Here you can search by funding type, planning authority and tender deadline dates for example (see figure 1.7).

CIS Online Figure 1.7

When you click on the search button you will see your list of projects that match the criteria you requested. This particular search yielded 98 results (see figure 1.8).

CIS Online Figure 1.8

If you’d like to narrow this down to a list of more manageable leads you can click the ‘Modify Criteria’ button on the right of the screen to go back and scale down/up your value range or reduce project stages to see only projects that are out to tender for example. When you have revised this you can click the ‘Search’ button to be met with a neater list of 23 project leads (see figure 1.9).

CIS Online Figure 1.9

You can sort this list by clicking on the ‘County’ and ‘Last Updated’ buttons on the right of the screen. Save your search by naming it in the box provided. You can opt to also have this search sent conveniently to your inbox for later reference. Below this, under the ‘Export Search Results’ heading, you can choose to print this list of projects, download CRM data or export to Excel or Word formats.

Clicking on the first project on the list will lead you to figure 1.10.

Government Team up with CIF to get Unemployed Construction Sector Back On Site

Wheelbarrow Line

Good news from the CSO’s live monthly register regarding a further fall in unemployment to just 10% in March. But what does this mean for the approximately 57,000 unemployed that once worked in industries associated with the construction sector? These workers make up 16.3% of those still unemployed but a plan by the Department of Social Protection (DSP) could help dramatically bring this figure down.

The objective is to raise a greater awareness of employment services already managed by the Government department which include JobsPlus, Jobs Ireland Recruitment Service, Employ Ability Service and JobBridge via the Construction Industry Federation (CIF).

The representative body for construction companies and contractors working across all sectors in Ireland will implement a more focused PR campaign of these services through their online and offline platforms, including blogs, videos, social media, leaflets and mailings.

“What we want to say to employers is ‘If you want to take on staff, we can find the staff for you…Construction companies get the finance they need to build, construction workers are re-employed, and they build the homes that families need” said the Tánaiste Joan Burton at the campaign launch recently.

She acknowledges that upon return to site, many will require upskilling in health and safety procedures but that this would be something addressed with industry employers. CIF Director General Tom Parlon commented that he was positive about the effect the Construction Industry Federation will have in generating a greater awareness of the Government services available;

“This will not only help those who are out of work, but it will also strongly benefit our sector, as well as the wider economy”.

If you’re employed in the industry and are searching for projects to feed into your pipeline, Construction Information Services (CIS) offer a powerful tool in generating leads for your business, whether you’re a small scale construction business or a large building materials supplier.

CIS is an online database that contains researched, up-to-date information on all significant building projects for Ireland, North and South. Our highly qualified research team research valuable projects in great detail to ensure your business can make important decisions quickly and generate the right leads for your pipeline.
