A LIMERICK building company has won a top national award for its move towards sustainability.

Duggan Systems, based in Patrickswell, were given the award in the ‘Supply Chain Partner of the Year – Ireland East’ category of the Sisk Supply Chain Awards.

Duggan won the prize for its joint venture with Dublin-based company Techrete.

Sisk, who is currently working on Project Opera in the city centre, celebrated its annual Supply Chain Awards which has grown to become one of the biggest occasions in Irish construction calendar, at The Convention Centre Dublin with over 900 people in attendance.

The gala ceremony brought its Irish, UK, and European supply chain partners together with 200 sub-contractors and suppliers shortlisted for awards with 19 winners on the night.

Duggan Systems currently employs over 120 people at its Patrickswell site, with a similar number employed on a sub-contract basis.

Ahead of its annual Supply Chain Awards, Sisk carried out research with its suppliers, sub-contractors, and manufacturers that indicates an upward trend in sustainability awareness and engagement in the construction sector with 59 per cent of its suppliers having a net zero and carbon reduction plan compared with just 52 per cent in 2022.

Marcus Carne, managing director of regional building at Sisk, said: “Congratulations to all the Duggan Systems team on winning the ‘Supply Chain Partner of the Year – Ireland East’ award category.”

“Our Supply Chain Awards help us to advocate for innovation and sustainability, using modern methods of construction, offsite fabrication, and transforming our digital capabilities. The awards give us the opportunity to recognise and appreciate excellence across our entire supply chain. On behalf of Sisk, I would like to congratulate all of our winners.”
