Suir Engineering people

According to Mick Kennedy, Managing Director, Suir Engineering, the keystone of Suir’s business success is its people. “At Suir, every individual team member is valued, encouraged to embrace personal responsibility and supported to develop and maximise their potential.” Mick Kennedy comments. “Suir Engineering has a proud track record of retaining staff and cultivating our talent from apprentice to director. We are meticulous about the health and safety of our teams and support their ongoing professional development.”

Innovation at Suir Engineering

Digitalisation and innovation have played a key role in optimising the efficiency of the organisation of Suir Engineering.

The contractor’s resources include BIM, off-site fabrication, lean design and lean construction, and it is a leading proponent of the ‘paperless construction site’. These new technologies, along with modern methods of construction, allow it to realise projects faster, more efficiently, more cost-effectively and – above all – more transparently.

Mick Kennedy adds that this is a clear advantage for its customers, contracting authorities, partners and the company. “These innovations have also had the benefit of driving continuous improvement across the company in safety, quality, employee job satisfaction and the reduction of our carbon footprint.”

Health & safety at Suir Engineering

The health and safety of Suir Engineering staff is a crucial pillar of the contractor’s critical success factors. Suir Engineering has established, documented, implemented, and maintains its integrated quality, environmental and health & safety management system and strives to continually improve the system’s effectiveness in accordance with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018. This enables Suir Engineering to provide safe and healthy workplaces, prevent work-related injury and ill health of workers, and continually improve its OH&S performance.
