As we reach the time of year when business will be slowing down and as we prepare to enjoy or endure Christmas parties, Construction Network Ireland (CNI) want to take a few minutes each day to remember the year that has passed and to recognise some of the great projects that have happened in 2016.
The last twelve months have been a momentous year for the industry, with the construction sector finally starting to see positive growth and the prospects of a better and more sustainable growth in the year to come, after what has been an incredibly difficult decade.
To celebrate all that is best in the industry in Ireland, Construction Network Ireland has decided to look back on some of the best projects completed in 2016 and to recognise the great work that is being done in Ireland, by Irish firms, for the Irish built environment.
In the run up to Christmas, CNI will be rolling out the ‘12 Projects of Christmas’ to recognise the top projects of 2016. The projects will be chosen by a crack judging panel which includes Tom Parlon of the Construction Industry Federation (CIF), Barry O’Dowd of IDA Ireland, and Claire Solon of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and kindly sponsored by the award winning Ethos Engineering.
Over the course of 12 days in December, a new project will be launched and highlighted each day, amid pipers piping, lords a leaping and drummers drumming, with the final project being announced on December 22nd.
Our list is designed to inspire all of the most common Christmas emotions (envy and jealousy among them) as well as promoting debate and reflection on what has been a great year for the industry.
We hope that you enjoy the 12 Projects of Christmas and that with a little luck and some help from Father Christmas, a project you worked on is on the list.
