CIS and Esri Ireland Map €56 Billion Worth of Construction Projects Throughout Ireland

CIS and Esri Ireland Map €56 Billion Worth of Construction Projects Throughout Ireland

Esri Ireland, the market leader in geographic information services, has announced that Construction Information Services (CIS) has leveraged its digital mapping platform to present its members with a visual guide to construction projects around Ireland. 36,500 construction projects, worth €56 billion, are currently mapped on this visual platform.

CIS is Ireland’s leading construction intelligence service whose database provides comprehensive, real-time and verified information about construction projects throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland. Since being founded in 1972, CIS has become an invaluable source of information and data to Irish construction companies about planned projects.

Having published a weekly report since the 1970s providing companies with the information about construction projects, and transitioning online in 2008, CIS wanted to provide its subscriber base with a more interactive experience. To do this, CIS approached Esri Ireland to create a map showing the location of all projects around the country.

The result is CIS Mapping, an interactive system that enables construction companies planning for the future to examine the opportunities for new builds throughout the country. Subscribers to the service can view their search results on a highly-detailed map of Ireland, and filter results using a number of criteria, including project type, location and size of the project. This allows companies to quickly assess jobs that might be of interest and proceed to the next stage of the process.

Esri’s platform also enables CIS to illustrate other data sets that may be of interest to their customers, including area demographics and zoning information. All of this information can be very helpful to companies bidding for business.

Tom Moloney, managing director, CIS, said: “The construction sector in Ireland is once again becoming an important pillar of the Irish economy after a number of difficult years. To ensure this positive momentum continues, companies need access to in-depth, reliable data about projects across the country from the pre-planning to on-site stages.

“This is where CIS Mapping comes in. With over 36,500 construction projects worth €56 billion already listed on the map, this tool presents organisations with a huge opportunity to quickly and efficiently decide on the projects that interest them most, and that demonstrate the most potential. Esri’s platform allows us to present information, such as the population density of an area or an overview of local amenities, that is of utmost importance to companies in the construction sector. This simply wouldn’t be possible using other mapping software.”

Dermot O’Kane, sales manager, Esri Ireland, said: “CIS has long been at the forefront of providing Irish companies with the information they need to develop their businesses. The company celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2017, and the development of CIS Mapping is a testament to its continuing adaptability and commitment to innovation. The CIS Online Service remains an authoritative source of information, but people now are more visually led than ever before, and CIS Mapping is a powerful tool that will appeal to a new generation of users. We are thrilled to have been able to work closely with CIS on the development of this service, and we’re eager to continue to develop the platform to bring it to more and more users around Ireland.”
