Irish Construction Industry Magazine, is celebrating its thirtieth year publishing & reveals its ‘Top Company’ listing every year. To be included means more than just a rank and position. It shines a light on the construction firms that have made huge efforts to excel in their industry and have shown determination and commitment to instilling a positive work culture within their businesses.
Combined turnover for Ireland’s top 20 M&E companies in 2019 totalled €3.4 billion compared to €2.92 billion in 2018. In the 2020 listing, Mercury Engineering was named the top M&E company, with Jones Engineering Group and Dornan Engineering securing the second and third positions respectively.
The results from Irish Construction Industry Magazine’s ‘Top Companies’ listing reveals an ambitious and resilient industry that’s not afraid to adapt to an evolving market and ever-changing client requirements. Technologies like Building Information Modelling (BIM) are revolutionising the industry, with some of our top construction companies among the first to adopt the 3D technology in Ireland. Promoting construction as an attractive and viable career choice to school leavers and graduates is crucial to the survival of the industry; through a range of programmes and courses, the companies included in this year’s listing are passionate when it comes to attracting raw talent into the industry.
Commenting on this year’s listing, Michael McDonnell, Managing Director at MCD Media Ltd, said: “We’d like to congratulate all the construction firms that made it onto our top companies listing this year. To be included in Irish Construction Industry Magazine’s Top Companies listing is undoubtedly an achievement. The construction industry is currently facing an unprecedented crisis and although we may find that 2020 turnover figures aren’t as healthy as those in 2019, I have no doubt that the industry’s resilience will ensure it survives this challenging period.”
