CS Consulting Group has been awarded the much-sought-after CPD Accredited Employer Standard by Engineers Ireland in recognition of its continuing professional development (CPD) strategy. 

CS Consulting Group, which includes Cronin & Sutton Consulting (Dublin), Cronin Sutton Cotter (Limerick) and CS Consulting Engineers (UK), was founded in 2012 by directors Pearse Sutton, Cora Sutton-Smith and Owen Sullivan.

Significant development projects

The organisation draws on the knowledge and experience of its founders and management team, who have directed significant development projects in several territories, ranging from commercial and retail to residential and mixed-use, to provide the best in civil, structural and traffic engineering consultancy services.

Over the past 10 years, CS Consulting Group has grown from a team of five to a team of over 70 Chartered Engineers, Junior Engineers, Technicians and support staff across its three offices.

The organisation is also passionate about developing Ireland’s future engineering talent pipeline. In recognition of the organisation’s vision, and as part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, CS Consulting donated copies of the acclaimed book ‘How Was That Built? The Stories Behind Awesome Structures’ by Roma Agrawal to 1,000 primary schools across Ireland. 

Cora Sutton-Smith, director of operations at CS Consulting Group, said: “CPD and training has always been a core value of our organisation and we are extremely proud to be awarded the Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer Standard.

"This very well-regarded programme will support our talent development and strengthen our learning initiatives into the future. Our objective is to continuously improve our learning and development systems so we can continue to nurture and encourage the best and brightest engineers and technicians.”

'Leading, engineer employer'

Aidan O’Flaherty, CPD associate director at Engineers Ireland, said: “CS Consulting Group is very welcome to the Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer community.

"CS Consulting Group rightfully holds its place in this community of leading, engineer employers who recognise that a robust and progressive CPD framework will attract, develop, and retain engineering talent. CPD accreditation has enabled CS Consulting to benchmark its CPD practices with the best organisations in Ireland and will contribute to delivering its strategic objectives.”

The Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer standard is a strategic framework which enables engineers and engineering employers to raise competency levels and deliver tangible business benefits by investing in engineers through continuing professional development.
