Grant Thornton to probe Irish construction

Grant Thornton has been hired to probe anti-consumer practices in the Irish construction industry

Grant Thornton
has been hired by the
National Consumer
Agency
(NCA) in Ireland to conduct an investigation into anti-consumer
practices in the construction industry.

The accounting firm will examine a range of consumer issues in the Irish
building and property sector, including the price of houses, according to the
Sunday Business Post in Ireland.

Grant Thornton will present its report to the National Consumer Agency (NCA),
which was set up earlier this year to protect consumer rights. The investigation
is scheduled for completion by the end of March.

Last year, the NCA’s predecessor, Office of the Director of Consumer Affairs,
received 2,120 complaints about construction work or buying a home.
