Hosted by Event Strategies Ltd, the awards is considered Ireland’s premier construction event for benchmarking excellence. The ceremony took place on 9th May 2017 at the Clayton Hotel in Dublin with over 500 industry figures in attendance.
Groundforce’s newest product SheetMaster was shortlisted in the Construction Product of the Year and Innovation in Construction categories. SheetMaster is a multi-function, sheet handling and installation attachment that makes handling and installing trench sheets quicker, more controllable and safer. It is a completely new product designed by Groundforce’s in-house design team, and provides contractors a solution to common problems on site and makes working with trench sheets easier, quicker and safer.
In support of our awards submission, Tom Holland, ESK Plant commercial manager said: “SheetMaster is revolutionary product which now makes a potentially hazardous operation safe. ESK Plant continuously strives to improve safety standards in the industry and Groundforce are a company who fully support this. They provide solutions and innovative new products aimed at solving safety issues in some of the grey areas left in the industry, particularly shoring. SheetMaster is a good example of a product which GF have developed in-house which will have a massive impact on the use of shoring equipment in Ireland.”
