Shortage of foremen in Ireland

Mitchell MCDermott consultants in their report are concluding that shortage of experienced foremen to manage building teams and sites is driving up costs in construction industry in Ireland. Independent.ie informs based on report that an office block that would have cost about €20m to build in 2015, would cost €25m now.
“Ireland’s construction sector is now employing about 147,000 workers, but business lobby group Ibec said last summer that an additional 80,000 workers are needed in the sector to meet housing demand.”
