Suir Engineering are both delighted and proud to be amongst Europe’s first organisations to achieve the new ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety standard in addition to achieving the ISO 9001:2015, and the 14001:2015 standard in conjunction with the EQA Ireland.

This makes Suir Engineering the first Mechanical and Electrical Installations company to achieve the brand new ISO 45001:2018 in Ireland. The migration to the brand new ISO 45001:2018 which was published in March 2018 demonstrates our strong commitment to Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems and re-affirms our position as a leader in the Mechanical Electrical industry

The award of the ISO 45001:2018 represents the achievement of a very important strategic objective for Suir Engineering, This has not only allowed us to demonstrate the value we can provide, but the commitment from our leaders to provide a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees and stakeholders.

Successful collaboration, whether with clients or suppliers, is at the very heart of our business. It encourages innovation, creativity and productivity across the whole life cycle of our projects.

A special word of thanks to all the staff of Suir Engineering for their input and commitment to the achievement of this standard and our Integrated Management System.

Also, a word of thanks to the EQA and their auditors, Graeme Allen and Chris Reidy, for their professionalism, style of auditing and the spirit in which the audit was conducted

Contractor of the Month 3 in a Row Frascati Shopping Centre

Suir Engineering have been awarded “Contractor of the Month” for the last 3 months (November, December and January) by Collen Construction at Frascati Shopping Centre Redevelopment Project.

The award was passed onto our sub-contractors on each and every occasion as without their hard work, attention to detail & site wide focus on Safety then Suir Engineering would not have won these awards. Our Sub Contractors are our face on the ground and we are judged by their performance. Therefore it is only right that we acknowledge their hard work and commitment to delivering a first class job.

For this reason Eugene O’Loughlin our Project Manager asked young Aaron Keeler ( a second year apprentice) to accept the award for January on Suir Engineering’s behalf as he has excelled during his time on Frascati Shopping Centre.

Suir Engineering were delighted to support  the  ‘Last Planner System’ event hosted by WIT. It was a terrific opportunity for us to join WIT School of Engineering faculty and students in their engagement with Professor Glenn Ballard from the University of California at Berkeley (a co-founder of the Lean Construction Institute (LCI USA) and the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC), and one of the co-architects of the Last Planner System and Lean Project Delivery System); along with Professor Christine Pasquire from NTU (Founder and Head of the Lean Project Management Research Centre, and core member of LCI UK and the IGLC); and Paul Ebbs from NTU (co-founder of Lean Construction Ireland and now research associate with Professor Pasquire).

It was great to see the engagement and enthusiasm for Lean Construction amongst the 2nd year students from BSc (Hons) in Construction Management & Engineering; BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying; and BEng in Civil Engineering, working in groups with us .

Well done to all involved and thanks to Ann Power WIT school of Engineering for the photographs of the day
