EDA welcomes IADC as a new memberPublished 28/6 at 16:10
The European Demolition Association has increased its presence in Europe with the addition of a new organisation: the Irish Association of Demolition Contractors.
The Irish Association of Demolition Contractors (IADC) is a constituent association of the Construction Industry Federation (CIF). IADC was formed in 1983, and is a national employer body representing companies in the demolition sector. The aim of the association is to promote contractors and raise standards in demolition through training and other initiatives. Association representatives sit on CIF Health and Safety, Construction and Demolition Waste subcommittees.
Through the CIF, representatives lobby government to drive change, and influence legislation and policies which effect specialist contractors. CIF also provides a range of professional services and assists its members through support on safety, health and welfare, industrial relations, tendering and contractual matters and provides a range of training programmes to ensure members are skilled in their area of construction management.
The European Demolition Association (EDA) was founded in 1978 and is the European platform for national demolition associations, demolition contractors and suppliers. Every year EDA organises activities for the European demolition industry, with the most important being its annual convention, a meeting that includes presentations about key topics and optional leisure activities.
