CNI reports

Construction Information Services (CIS) have published their Annual ‘Construction Opportunities 2017’ Report which contains almost €19 billion worth of Key and Major Construction Projects due to significantly progress, commence On-Site or be completed in the coming year, across all sectors of the Construction Industry throughout Ireland – North and South.

This is €2 Billion more than originally predicted, due to the large volume of Key and Major projects submitted for planning or moved to Plans Granted stage in Q4 2016.
