We are proud to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day today and are keen for you to meet several of our Engineering Hero's at ByrneLooby


With sixteen offices across Ireland, UK and the Middle East, we have a variety of engineering heroes who work across various disciplines. Before we introduce you to some of our team, we would first like to highlight the importance of today. Celebrating the successes of less well-represented members in our industry is an integral part of redressing workplace imbalance. Raising the profile of women engineers and highlighting their impressive work and career milestones is vital to encourage the next generation of engineering women.

Today we would like to introduce you to several ByrneLooby engineers who deliver on significant projects for communities and the wider society.
