Irish Construction on the up: industry expands by 10% year-on-year
Newly released figures from the Central Statistics Office show the continuing growth in the Irish construction sector.
On an annual basis, the volume of output in building and construction in Ireland increased by 10.1% in the third quarter of 2014. There was an increase of 11.0% in the value of production in the same period. The annual rise in the volume of output reflects year-on-year increases of 19.1%, 13.4% and 2.5% respectively in residential building work, civil engineering and non-residential building work.
The buoyant sector is creating new opportunities for graduate Civil & Enviromental Engineers, with all the major Engineering consultancies seeking to increase their graduate recruitment.
