Excellence in CSR by an SME

  Carey Building Contractors was the winner of the ‘Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility by an SME’ award at the 13th Annual CSR Awards in September.

The award recognises an ongoing research partnership with the Dept. of Building and Civil Engineering in the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology focused on benchmarking resource efficiency practices for construction projects.

The research by Jan Gottsche and Dr. Mark Kelly of GMIT was funded by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Green Enterprise Scheme and resulted in the implementation of energy reduction, water reduction, and waste minimisation strategies leading to significant cost savings and reduced environmental impact.

The award was based on the construction of the Podiatry Unit in Merlin Park Hospital. The low cost/no cost solutions efficiency strategies employed on this project resulted in savings of €8,834.64, a reduction in energy use of over 6,000kWhrs, and the prevention of over 160 tonnes of material waste.
