Engineering consultancy firm Sweco continues expansion with new Cork office
Engineering, environment and design consultancy firm Sweco UK is continuing its expansion with the opening of a new office in Cork.
The company already has experience delivering projects across Ireland, including the implementation of telemetry systems with Irish Water and the development of the SSE’s Galway Wind Park.
In addition, Sweco has worked on a number of major transportation projects in Ireland including the M8 Cashel to Mitchelstown motorway, the M50 upgrade in Dublin and the M3 Clonee to Kells motorway scheme in Meath.
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, the company said.

The Cork office will complement Sweco’s 12 locations in the UK.
Initially the office will be occupied by a team of four transportation experts, but the team will also contribute to multi-disciplinary services being delivered by the consultancy buildings, energy, environment, transportation and water and asset management business units.
"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," Sweco UK managing director, Max Joy, said.
Cork-based Sweco operations director, John Nolan said that the company was looking forward to adding to the team in Cork "while continuing to provide Sweco’s recognised expertise and multi-disciplinary approach to project design and delivery."
In the UK, Sweco employs 800 people and in addition to Cork, has offices in Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Maidenhead, Manchester, Newcastle, Peterborough, Solihull and Stockton.
