PUNCH Consulting Engineers is the business name of Michael Punch and Partners Limited and is one of Ireland’s leading and most experienced civil & structural engineering consultancies. The partnership was established by the well-known Irish engineer Michael Punch in 1973 to provide a wide-ranging consultancy service in civil & structural engineering. In this time it has grown to be one of the largest Irish-owned consultancies, with a diverse client base across an increasingly broad range of sectors of the industry.
Formed in Limerick originally, the company opened an office in Dublin soon after, followed by another office in Cork. Further geographic expansion took place in 2014, when they opened an office in Glasgow having acquired a local well-established practice there. In 2015, they opened a new office in Galway to further improve their regional coverage within Ireland.
This steady growth has given them the scale and resources to deliver large and complex projects, both nationally and overseas. Their clients include Government Departments, local authorities, private developers and major international companies. They have successfully delivered individual projects of up to €450m, and these projects have been delivered in Ireland, the United Kingdom, mainland Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
The company ethos remains true to the original ethos of our founder, Michael Punch – that is, to provide their clients with an economic solution in an efficient manner, while maintaining the highest levels of quality in both their service and in their finished product. They constantly strive to meet and exceed their client requirements and to answer the market needs whilst maintaining their reputation for effective team work, client attention and the highest levels of service. This is reflected in the level of repeat business and the long term relationships they maintain with their client base.
