We are proud to be able to offer the following engineering services to a wide variety of sectors, from housing to schools to industrial buildings:

Structural Design

We are able to design the structural elements for any of the following:


We are involved in many emerging house technologies using different materials to maximise the thermal efficiencies and comfort levels in houses, including a number of passive houses. These technologies include using Poroton clay blocks without a traditional wall cavity, houses with hemp-lime as a breathable wall material and as a breathable render for a low carbon footprint, and specialist timber frame houses with different insulation materials to allow breathability in the walls. We are also involved in the design of insulated foundations built on structural polystyrene to eliminate cold bridges.

We also provide design services for traditional blockwork or timber frame houses.


We have experience in designing warehouse structures, including large steel portal frames, concrete floors, including insulated cold-room floors, and piled foundations.

Industrial Buildings:

We have experience in the design of structural elements for industrial buildings, including pharmaceutical buildings and workshops.

We provided the civil and structural design for the Enterprise Centre at the Ecovillage in Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary, which involved applying sustainable principles to a larger scale building.

Commercial Buildings:

We have been involved in a number of commercial buildings from refurbishments to large commercial units/apartment blocks, generally working as part of a design team. These buildings have typically involved steel or reinforced concrete frames with concrete floors, sometimes on piled foundations or with basements.


We have been involved in the design process for some schools, again working as part of a design team.

Retaining Walls:

We have also designed retaining walls in reinforced concrete and in other materials such as Timbacrib or stone gabion baskets. We will assess each situation and the constraints presented to us and advise on the most suitable solution for the situation.
