On Monday 25th July 2016 the Construction Contracts Act came into effect. This should be of interest to most of our members as it is a means of getting paid on time and if not it goes to an adjudication stage. I suggest you look at the two links indicated below and get familiar with the procedure. On Thursday 1st September 2016 we will have a speaker at our Electrical Trade Show who will elaborate further on this topic and this should be an very informative Seminar.

We are also looking at a simple contract that Electrical Contractors can use for small and domestic work in an attempt to avoid any misunderstandings with the client at the end of a project.



Our Annual Electrical Trade Show takes place on Thursday 1st September 2016 at the Red Cow Moran’s Hotel Dublin from 10am to 8pm. Admission is FREE OF CHARGE. It is an excellent opportunity  for Electrical Contractors, Wholesalers, Architects, Engineers, Facility Managers and Electricians to see the most advanced Products and Services available. We will also have Demonstrations and Seminars on the day. Our opening Speaker is Pierce Martin, General Manager from RECI.

Also if you would like to take part in our Electrical Trade Show 2016 we have a few remaining Stands left, but hurry as they are booking up quickly. Please contact our office on 01 6102715 or email info@aeci.ie for more information.
