Ethos

Over time Bennett’s organisational structure has evolved but still retains a hands-on approach to projects with director involvement in every project. This focus sets Bennett apart from its competitors and allows it to repeatedly deliver for clients. Their supply chain is diverse and robust.

Bennett have built up strong relationships with partners over many years and ensures that delivery challenges on each project are matched by the skill sets within its extensive supply chain.

As a Gold member of the Irish Green Building Council, Bennett continuously strives to perform to best practice in all matters relating to sustainability. Bennett’s mission is to lessen the impact on the environment while improving standards of living and building new partnerships in the localities in which they operate.
