Innovation at Suir Engineering

One of Suir’s guiding principles as a business is innovation. The efficiency of Suir Engineering’s organisation has been enhanced by digitalisation and innovation.

The contractor is a strong proponent of the paperless construction site, and its resources include BIM, off-site fabrication and manufacturing, and lean construction. These technologies, along with modern methods of construction, allow it to realise projects faster, more efficiently and more cost-effectively, with added benefits for a greener future due to reduced energy use, improved reductions in waste and increased efficiency through modern technologies.

This is a clear advantage for its customers, 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 its carbon footprint.
