Paul leads the civil and structural engineering team in Dublin ensuring it provides efficient designs with cost effective solutions for both public and private sector clients.
His experience spans a number of sectors on a range of landmark projects both in Ireland and internationally. In Dublin he jointly managed the Smithfield Market project, which provides 1.3 million sq ft of mixed use space and is one of Ireland’s largest regeneration projects undertaken as part of a new urban quarter in this historic area of the city. Other projects include the O’Connell Street and the RUA RED Arts Centre for South Dublin County Council.
Internationally Paul has been involved in the design and delivery of notable building projects including the Charles Perkins Centre for Sydney University, Kensington Colleges redevelopment for the University of New South Wales and new build capital works projects for the combined armed military forces in Qatar.
One of my first bosses, an astute structural engineer, advocated to his staff the importance of value engineering every structural scheme we produced. He used to say, with cost now so influential in the overall design process, anyone can produce one idea; we need to think laterally and come up with three.
