CIOB Ireland attended the 10th annual GMIT International Construction Management Conference in the spring.
Over 350 delegates attended various sessions during the day
event at GMIT’s Dublin Road campus in Galway. The annual conference is the
largest construction event in the west of Ireland and is hosted by the
Department of Building and Civil Engineering at GMIT.
The event is a fixture in the calendar for academics,
contractors, architects, engineers, surveyors, property professionals as well
as delegates from the public sector and semi-state organisations. It is also
attended by senior students from GMIT built environment programmes and other
colleges from around Ireland.
The conference was officially opened by Dr Michael Hannon,
acting president of GMIT, who welcomed delegates from all over Ireland and the
Eddie Tuttle, director of policy, research and public
affairs at CIOB, and Paul Nash, past president of CIOB, presented a talk titled
‘Quality, Competence and Professionalism in a post-Grenfell World’. Alan
Barnes, winner of CMYA Ireland 2019, gave a presentation of the refurbishment
and extension of the Scots Church project off Abbey Street in Dublin.
The conference is sponsored and supported by the CIOB, the
Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI), the Chartered Association of
Building Engineers (CABE) and the Construction Industry Federation (CIF).
