Conference will inform Wexford firms about public projects

By David Tucker

Construction firms throughout Wexford will get to hear about public projects planned throughout the county and the rest of the region over the next couple of years at a conference later this month.

The conference, which takes places at the Rochestown Park Hotel, in Cork, on January 23, is being organised by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) and is entitled 'The projects in 2015/ 2016 and how to win them'.

Among those participating will be procurement representatives from the Office of Government Procurement, the HSE, the Department of Education and Skills and Irish Water. The State's Chief Procurement Officer Paul Quinn will also speak at the conference and he will be joined by CIF President Michael Stone and CIF Director General Tom Parlon.

Mr. Parlon said the conference has been organised to help provide more information to construction personnel from the region interested in upcoming public projects.

'One of the big issues for construction companies in Wexford at the moment is forward planning. The sector is beginning to recover but there is little certainty about what projects are actually going to construction. That is why we have set up this conference.

'It will provide a better insight into a range of upcoming public projects planned for Wexford and the wider region. This is something that we think will be of great interest to anyone involved in construction activity.'

Tickets for the event are available by calling Brid Cody on 021 4351410 or by emailing
