Breakfast Briefing | Tuesday 2 December | 7 – 8:30 am | Gresham Metropole Hotel, MacCurtain Street, Cork | Hosted by Energy Cork
This Breakfast Briefing will focus on the built environment and construction standards. The Briefing will include introductions to the emerging QualiBuild scheme for energy efficient retrofit training and the new Construction Industry Register Ireland (CIRI).
The speakers at the Breakfast Briefing will be:

Seamus will present an Outline of the QualiBuild Foundation Energy Skills (FES) Training and its future roll out. The Foundation Energy Skills programme is a core component of the Irish Build Up Skills Initiative. Under the QualiBuild project it is planned to provide this training to 200 construction workers and develop a plan to roll it out nationally.

Conor will discuss the Construction Industry Register Ireland, for which he has been involved in organising the induction programme. The Construction Industry Register Ireland 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, sole traders and builders that are vetted by Government nominees and industry professionals.
CIRI has been set up to help members of the public find competent, experienced construction practitioners. CIRI sets standards for those listed. To be on CIRI competent construction companies, sole traders and builders must comply with the building regulations and an industry code of ethics, they must prove their tax compliance and they 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. https://www.ciri.ie/
A light breakfast buffet will be served from 7am and the briefing will commence at 7.30 am sharp.
