Leading consultancy Sweco UK has continued its expansion with the opening of a new office in Cork, Ireland.
Sweco launched in the UK last April following its acquisition of Grontmij and has achieved consistent growth.
Its expansion in Ireland follows the delivering of projects across the country including the M8 Cashel to Mitchelstown motorway, the M50 upgrade in Dublin and the M3 Clonee to Kells motorway scheme in Meath.
Located at Phoenix House on Monahan Road, the Cork office will join Sweco’s 12 locations in the UK, the most recent of which opened in Stockton, Teesside, in June.
Sweco UK managing director, Max Joy, said: 'We chose to open in Cork to establish a permanent presence in Ireland which will further enhance the service provided to our clients based in the country and operating within it. The expansion forms part of our ongoing strategic growth plans as it provides the platform for our teams to explore new opportunities to generate additional sustainable, profitable growth.'
The office team will contribute to multi-disciplinary services being delivered by the consultancy’s buildings, energy, environment, transportation and water and asset management business units.
The Cork team is currently working on the A1 junctions project in Northern Ireland and will shortly commence tender design work on the A6 Dungiven to Drumahoe dualling scheme also in Northern Ireland
Cork-based Sweco operations director, John Nolan who is leading the team in Ireland, added: 'We are looking forward to adding to our team in Cork while continuing to provide Sweco’s recognised expertise and multi-disciplinary approach to project design and delivery.'
