Built to Innovate: Government Supports for MMC

‘Built to Innovate’ is an Enterprise Ireland initiative under the Government’s ‘Housing for All’ programme. This initiative includes a suite of Lean, Digitalisation and Research & Innovation grant aid packages that are now available for projects designed to deliver new homes for Ireland faster and with less overall expense.

As a consultancy focused on driving increased productivity and profitability for clients in the construction manufacturing and MMC sectors, Clerkin Consulting can help your business to access relevant State supports available under ‘Housing for All’ and other industry-focused programmes. 

The objective of this funding is to facilitate your business to build faster, on time, and with less expense; it is important to understand the different grant packages in order to assess the most appropriate grant/grants for your particular business. 

Built to Innovate – Lean

The Lean Offer is designed to encourage the adoption of Lean principles in your organisation to increase performance and competitiveness. Lean tools and techniques can help your company address competitiveness issues by building the capability of your people to identify problems, improve operations, and create a more innovative organisation.

Enterprise Ireland’s Lean Business Offer is made up of three levels of support: LeanStart, LeanPlus, and LeanTransform. Each level of support is characterised by increasing levels of capability in implementing Lean business principles and other best practice approaches to drive company awareness, adoption and integration of Lean tools and techniques.

The experts at Clerkin Consulting can help you access these grants by guiding you through the application process and helping you identify areas of your business where Lean principles can be applied to improve performance and reduce costs.

Built to Innovate – Digital

The Digital Offer is about redesigning your business to serve your customers better by using new technology to improve the customer experience. Our consultancy can help you develop a Digital Innovation journey plan that includes a review of your customer value stream, identifying key performance indicators that measure customer value, and putting in place measurement systems to lay down the foundations for your digital innovation journey.

We can also help you identify and apply for the appropriate grants, such as the Digital Discovery Grant, which can cover up to 80 percent of a 7-day consultancy engagement to assess the skills assessment, culture of innovation, digital mind-set in the company, process flow efficiency in the operations (Lean & Digital), opportunities to deliver new value-added digital services or products, use of digital systems to measure and reduce energy, emissions, and waste, and review of cyber-security strategy and processes.

Built to Innovate – Research & Innovation

The Research & Innovation supports provide access to our expertise and contacts to increase the levels and value of R&D and innovation in your company. We can help you undertake R&D and increase the amount of innovation in your business. 

The team at Clerkin Consulting can work with your team to identify the appropriate grants, such as Innovation Vouchers, collaborative research, and industry-led R&D.
