Company Profile

“Best in Class” Engineering Consultancy Solutions

One of Ireland's Leading Engineering Consultancies

At PUNCH, We Engineer Legacies.

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. Since then 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 we opened an office in Glasgow having acquired a local well-established practice there. In 2015, we opened a new office in Galway to further improve our regional coverage within Ireland.
