Oct 25, 2013

Byrne Looby Partners is delighted to announce the opening of a new UK office in Manchester. The new office is being opened as part of the company’s UK growth strategy and will give Byrne Looby a greater geographical footprint in the UK. David Jowett, Principal Engineer with Byrne Looby is the new office manager. The opening of the Manchester office will see more engineering staff with civil, geotechnical and structural experience recruited by Byrne Looby, enhancing the capability of the company further.

Byrne Looby, who this month announced the creation of a further 50 jobs across its international offices, is building an engineering consultancy team in the Manchester office to support its growing order book in the UK. David Beadman, Director at Byrne Looby commented, “We’re experiencing significant growth in the UK. In headcount alone we were recognised by NCE as one of the top 20 recruiters among civil engineering consultants in 2012. We focus on solving challenging structural and geotechnical construction problems and we’re seeing increased demand for our services with more and more new projects coming on stream”.

The company is working on a number of projects in the north-west including Ferrybridge Waste to Energy Plant in Leeds and the Finningley and Rossington Regeneration Route Scheme (FARRRS) in Doncaster. Byrne Looby is also geotechnical designer and temporary works checker for Sisk on Carrington Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Power Station. This project involved designing foundations around 5000 existing piles and carrying out temporary works to support large barges bringing the turbines to site.

Byrne Looby has seven international locations including offices at Guildford and Belfast and currently employs 90 staff.
