John Sisk & Son, Ireland’s leading provider of construction services, and Designer Group, the Dublin headquartered, international electrical and mechanical engineering business, have announce the arrival of Sensori Facilities Management to Ireland. This new brand has come about as a result of Sisk acquiring a 50% holding in Designer Group’s Facilities Management business, a subsidiary of Designer Group and a premier supplier of integrated property facility management services to leading organisations across both public and private sectors in Ireland.

This new joint venture business will be positioned to deliver a fully integrated facility management service to both the extensive customer bases of Sisk and Designer Group, and to new customers. The development is very positive and clearly complements the strategic focus of both Sisk and Designer Group.

The business will be led by Mark Cullen as Managing Director, currently FM Operations Director at Designer Group. According to Mark Cullen: “Sensori Facilities Management will define what facilities management will become, not just in Ireland, but further afield. We are incredibly excited by what we can achieve and what we can deliver for our existing clients and new ones that we will welcome to Sensori Facilities Management. As Sisk and DG are both industry leaders in BIM and Data analytics, this will continue be a fundamental part of how we manage all of buildings into the future. We will continue to invest in this technology for the betterment of your built assets into the future.”

Speaking at the launch event, Stephen Bowcott, CEO of John Sisk & Son, said: “Sisk is a long established family business. Our journey to a Facilities Maintenance business started well over 20 years ago when we established Sisk Rail in the UK, which at its core is an FM business. More recently we created a JV with Designer Group FM in August 2018 for the PPP Schools Bundle 5 and working with DIF and the NDFA. Our relationship with Designer Group also goes back over 20 years, and we have completed many fantastic projects together and as a result we have built up a very strong working relationship and the businesses share many core values.

“We look forward to the growth of this new business which has great teams throughout the country. We expect to strengthen our relationship with our existing customers and expand our service offering.”

Michael Stone, CEO of Designer Group, said: “This new partnership with Sisk will enable us to provide a complete turnkey solution to our existing customers, thereby enhancing the service we are offering and win new ones. We can assist with design to make your buildings easier to maintain, by installing additional sensors and controls. As part of our strategy for Managing Buildings for Life we have developed a wealth of experience in the area of energy management and have been helping our customers to reduce their energy costs in the buildings that we maintain.”
