ESBI Wins Engineers Ireland Award for Project Delivery Model

ESB International (ESBI) has won the large-sized company category award at the Engineers Ireland continuous professional development (CPD) Company of the Year Awards 2010.

The CPD Company of the Year Awards 2010 were presented by Tánaiste and the Minister for Education and Skills, Mary Coughlan.

The award recognises ESBI’s work in designing and implementing the project delivery model (PDM) for large-scale capital projects and the creation of a permanent project management office to support the ongoing development and improvement of the model.

The awards, now in their seventh year, acknowledge organisations that have demonstrated clear-cut business benefits arising from their use of CPD practices in developing engineering employees to realise innovative projects and initiatives with 16 companies short-listed over four categories.

Speaking at the awards on behalf of ESBI, Ollie Brogan, acting executive director of HR for ESB said: “This award highlights the company’s commitment to ensuring that the expertise and capability of our staff is fully utilised to drive continuous improvements across all areas of our business and enhance the services we provide to our international clients.”

“By adopting a consistent approach to project management, supported by continuous learning, we have significantly reduced the project risk associated with delivering large-scale capital projects and optimised our performance in areas such as safety, cost management, scheduling and post-commissioning operations,” he added.
