Farrans is First NI Contractor to Achieve International Certificate for Collaboration

14th June 2017

Farrans Construction has been awarded BS 11000 Collaborative Working accreditation, making the Belfast-based company the first contractor in Northern Ireland to attain the status.

Farrans now belongs to a small group of contractors within the UK construction sector who have also obtained the accreditation – an achievement which has been praised by the Board of Directors (pictured).  

Having worked towards certification for the past year, the achievement will reinforce Farrans’ industry leading role.

Farrans Managing Director, John Wilson, has praised the team for developing relationships and synergies which will keep the UK-wide contractor at the forefront of innovation.

“The BS11000 accreditation is a formal recognition of something which is deeply engrained in the Farrans way,” John said. “A collaborative approach has been evident in the Farrans people down through our 75 year history".

"Farrans have always taken great pride in working well with others and forming authentic, lasting relationships.

“That is true of all our teams operating across the UK and Ireland. Projects such as the £100m NIW Watermains Rehabilitation framework or Sunderland's New Wear Crossing which we are jointly carrying out with our JV partner, Victor Buyck, are prime examples of collaborative success.

“I believe this BS11000 accreditation will act as a springboard to open up new opportunities and to continue developing the Farrans people”.

Farrans currently operate across both the building and civil engineering divisions, with 4 main regional offices established across the UK and Ireland.
