PUNCH Consulting Engineers was established by the well-known Irish engineer Michael Punch in 1973 to provide a wide-ranging consultancy service in civil & structural engineering. It has grown to be one of the largest Irish-owned consultancies with a diverse client base across an increasingly broad range of industry sectors.

PUNCH Conservation stands on the threshold between the past and the future. The energies of holy men and women and not so holy men and women, families, artists, architects, carpenters, masons, quarrymen, plasterers, gardeners and so-called ordinary people are encapsulated in the spirit and style of our protected structures.
