Competent builders on CIRI
Published 26/07/2014 | 12:00
MEMBERS of the public in Carlow will now be able to search for competent and experienced construction companies and builders for the first time after a new register was officially launched for the construction sector.
The Construction Industry Register Ireland (CIRI) has been set up to help distinguish these builders and companies from those who have given the industry a bad name.
The public will now be able to log onto the free website, www.ciri.ie, and search for construction companies, sole traders and builders operating across the county.
The website is currently in the process of getting up and running and has 201 construction companies, sole traders and builders listed, including one from Carlow – Wallace Contracting Ltd.
A further 565 companies are at various stages of the application process and it is expected that more than 2,000 entries will be listed on CIRI by the end of 2015.
It is hoped that the website will also prove resourceful for Carlow based architects, chartered surveyors and engineers as they look to appoint competent construction companies and builders.
