IRISH-owned construction company, MMD Construction, has announced the creation of 100 new jobs at the Cork Airport Business Park. 

 The new jobs will be created in a number of specialities as demand increases for MMD Construction’s services in Munster and across Ireland. Recruitment is already underway, and will be completed within the next two years. Amongst the positions being offered are roles for project managers, engineers, BIM technicians, carpenters and plasterers.

  Amongst the projects currently under construction by MMD Construction is Carrigaline Education Campus, which at €30m is the largest primary/secondary school development in Ireland. They are also involved in social and affordable housing schemes in Kinsale and Clonakilty, the recent completion of the largest primary care centre in the country at the St Mary’s campus in Cork with another primary care centre under construction in Bandon.

Founded in 2000, MMD Construction has continued to grow consistently. The company currently employs 140 full time staff and provides an extensive range of construction services including pharmaceutical, healthcare, residential, civil infrastructure, education, commercial developments and historical building restoration. 

Each workspace in the €6m building is ergonomically designed, with biometric access and members of staff have the use of a full gym on-site. 

The company also uses new GPS technologies to ensure machine operators on sites can carry out excavations safety and accurately, using precision 3D automated control systems.

 MMD Construction was one of the first contractors to achieve ISO 45001:2018 and one of the first to achieve the ISO 9001:2015 quality standard, delivering the highest standards of safety and quality in the construction services they provide. 

The company also recently hit a significant health and safety milestone where they marked 92,000 hours on site (the equivalent of one year) without a single accident.
