Innovation

The spirit of innovation is something John Sisk placed at the very heart of his business when he founded it in 1859, and it’s something that everyone at Sisk works to achieve every day.

We invest in training and exploring new technologies, fostering and encouraging the Sisk visionary mentality in all our people and continually challenging both ourselves, our supply chain partners and our stakeholders to be creative and innovative in everything we do.

Sisk Supply Chain Awards leading innovation among our suppliers

We continually commit to investing in training and exploring new technologies, fostering and encouraging the Sisk visionary mentality in all our people and continually challenging both ourselves, our supply chain partners and our stakeholders to be creative and innovative in everything we do.

Throughout our history, we’ve frequently delivered on this innovative approach, using new technology, materials and/or building techniques on countless projects for the ultimate benefit of our clients.

Examples of Sisk innovation at work include:

  • Completing Ireland’s first steel frame building in 1942 (the then-Department of Enterprise, Trade & Employment HQ on Dublin’s Kildare Street).
  • Combining traditional restoration elements with an innovative concrete link bridge between two listed buildings at London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
  • The industry-leading use of digital technology to scan, map and build 3D and VR models of our projects, including the first full-VR model of a building to be used in the construction of new facilities of County Kildare’s legendary Curragh Racecourse.

Innovation and DPD

We have put Digital Project Delivery at the heart of our we deliver projects and have invested in training and technology to enable our people to engage with the best technology and processes.



We’ve foster our culture of innovation with our Sisk Innovation Awards Programme, an internal initiative that encourages, recognises and rewards our people to think in new ways about our work and how we do it.
