The Construction Industry Register Ireland (CIRI) – is a new resource to help all those who wish to engage competent construction companies, practitioners and builders.
This is the only register of construction companies, that are vetted by Government nominees and industry professionals.
CIRI has been set up to help clients find competent, experienced construction practitioners.
CIRI sets standards for those listed. To be on CIRI Mannings must comply with the building regulations and an industry code of ethics, we must prove our tax compliance and we must meet the health and safety regulations relating to the construction industry. Prior to the establishment of CIRI there was no way for the Irish public to distinguish construction companies, sole traders and builders who meet these standards from those who don't.
Construction companies, contractors, sub contractors, specialist contractors and builders listed on CIRI have a track record of competence and experience.
