Sweco UK, the Leeds-headquartered engineering, environment and design consultancy, has expanded its footprint with a new office in Cork, Ireland.

Since Sweco launched in the UK last April following its acquisition of Grontmij, the consultancy has undergone consistent growth and is now enhancing its presence in Ireland.

The consultancy has already amassed experience delivering projects across the country – including the implementation of telemetry systems with Irish Water and the development of SSE’s Galway Wind Park.

The Cork office will complement Sweco’s 12 locations in the UK, the most recent of which opened in Teesside in June.

MD 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 Cork team is currently working on the Oweninny wind farm in Mayo, phase two of 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.
