LMC Consulting Engineers was founded in early 2012 by structural engineers Gerry McCabe, Norman Irvine and Frank Lee.

The 3 founders were former employees of Lee McCullough Consulting Engineers (a company which originated in 1964) and had, during their time with that practice, completed many hundreds of projects in the Commercial, Public, Educational, Residential, Leisure and Retail sectors – examples of which include the new build and subsequent renovation of the ILAC retail centre, the new build of DIT Aungier Street College, the new build of Blocks C and D of the Georges Quay Office complex, and the renovation of Collins Barracks and Castletown House  –  more details / examples of the many Lee McCullough projects are available at ) .

In addition to their extensive structural experience LMC’s engineers have also worked on many civil projects in the areas of planning, services provision, road design and car parking.

The experience gained in over 40 years of practice has provided LMC with a firm foundation for the successful completion of all its projects. As with Lee McCullough, LMC clients are assured of a truly professional service, delivered on time and cost efficiently – this commitment to quality is evidenced by many repeat commissions from our considerable client base.

At LMC we recognise the power of collaborative teamwork. We continually seek to support, challenge and contribute to the project team in a manner which is positive, enthusiastic and professional – a key element of our role is to facilitate team efficiency and productivity and thereby secure the best outcome for our clients.

Should you require advice regarding structural or civil engineering matters please contact one of our principals who would be happy to discuss your project and assist in its successful completion.
