BIM

Mercury recognises the ever-growing importance BIM to the global construction industry. We utilise the most innovative and cutting-edge digital technologies. This enables more efficient design and construction to support the organisational growth of our clients.

We are certified to the highest possible standards, having received the BSI Kitemark for BIM Level 2 accreditation (PAS 1192-2:2013 & BS 1192:2007+A2:2016) in 2018. As BIM standards evolve – Mercury is planning to become ISO19650 accredited during 2021 in line with this evolution. Read more about Mercury's BIM capabilities here.

Quality in construction performance and client care underpin our reputation as a leading contractor delivering complex projects throughout all regions in which we operate. Key to our success is our constant investment in our people, supply chain, and inthe latest innovations in technology. Mercury is certified to ISO 9001:2015 – the highest internationally recognised standard in quality management. We don’t only satisfy quality system requirements to deliver the best possible service to our clients - we continually aspire to exceed them.


Innovation

Construction 4.0

Mercury continues to look forward regarding the fourth industrial revolution. We lead in the construction industry with the use of modern, innovative ‘smart’ production techniques including BIM, Lean, off-site fabrication, and modularisation, aimed at saving our clients valuable time and costs as well as increasing safety and quality. Mercury is playing an important role in this area, with our CEO Eoin Vaughan holding the role of Chairman of the CIF Construction 4.0 committee. The committee has been set up to provide guidelines to the Irish construction industry in relation to the digitalisation of industry.

Digital Construction

We live, work, and operate in the digital world. Embedding digital technology across our operations is essential to Mercury to ensure our employees, supply chain, and clients can maximise their performance. We have continually invested in digital transformation initiatives to connect our people and share their insights and experience to help deliver better projects.

Our cloud-based SOP platform The Mercury Way allows us to deliver digital SOPs to all staff.  Our onboarding platform The Mercury Experience that ensures that all new hires learn what they need from the right people to hit the ground running. All Mercury projects use construction management software for Engineering Applications enabling standard performance metrics. Our Productivity on a Phone app provides our foremen in the field with performance targets for their crews. The goal of our digital transformation is that we get the best technology to the people who deliver value for our clients.

Lean

Mercury has long been an advocate of Lean and has implemented its principles into work practices for many years. If there is an activity or task being performed for a client, we will always strive to make it happen in a better, faster, or smarter way.

Virtual Reality

Mercury is a proponent of VR, having opened a Virtual Reality Hub at our dedicated BIM centre. Mercury’s in-house BIM team have the capability to generate bespoke VR models for any projects utilising BIM. These models not only create a unique immersive experience for our clients, but also offer major benefits with respect to design development & review, construction management, QEHS, facilities management, and training.

Using VR in collaboration with BIM and traditional construction documentation allows our clients and project team to engage in more thorough design review & construction planning processes. This creates a positive impact on the project for all stakeholders involved.

Offsite Assembly

The Offsite Assembly (OSA) market is redefining our industry and we're leading the charge.

With 50+ supply chain partners and over 15 years of experience delivering projects through OSA across over 11 countries, Mercury's expansive OSA strategy and capabilities will ensure our success continues to mount as we step into the future.
