The history of
Working as a team since 1998, Jeremy Lamb and Terry Sheehan formed EirEng Consulting Engineers in 2011 to provide excellent cost-effective engineering services to clients while preserving client focus and relationships. Together Jeremy and Terry have a combined directorial experience of over forty years and over sixty years as Consulting Engineers delivering projects in Ireland, UK, USA, and around the world across a broad range of Civil and Structural Engineering project types. Jeremy and Terry’s commitment to service, coupled with an integrated and sustainable approach to design, is built into the fabric of EirEng and shared among all staff.
This has led to a wide-ranging client base that continues to grow across a range of sectors, including a particular expertise in Temperature Controlled and Automated Distribution Centres. The initial staff of 3 in a small Dun Laoghaire office in 2011 is now approaching 40 across two offices, since the Bath office opened in 2020. We hire the best people who share our beliefs and commitments.
After a little over 10 years as Managing Director, Terry handed over the top job to Jeremy, in line with their commitment to sustainability in the company management. Terry reverted to his Project/Executive Director role and continues to work closely with the EirEng team and our clients.
The approach at EirEng is based on Client loyalty and successfully challenging project-wide and related disciplines to work together cooperatively to achieve optimal integrated results: client satisfaction with competitive cost. It is both gratifying and validating to see a large proportion of our work coming from repeat clients.

We believe teamwork and clear communication are the key principles required to achieve successful project outcomes. This communication is required between all parties to understand and meet defined requirements; cooperation and clear interactions are required to execute the requirements; and mutual respect is exchanged when communication and cooperation are fulfilled.
EirEng’s experienced team of engineers and specialists bring valuable knowledge to each project. Our processes are detailed but simple, to ensure we keep variables to a minimum, budgets and timelines are within scope, and most importantly, to keep partners and stakeholders enthusiastic and customers satisfied. A gratifying amount of our work comes from existing clients who return for our technical capabilities and friendly approach.
At EirEng, we choose the brightest and most rounded engineers to work with us, who thrive on challenges and delight in thinking creatively outside of the box. We are familiar with all start-to-finish building processes, which allows us a vantage point for managing projects. Our staff are the recipients of many prestigious sustainability recognitions and awards on projects over their careers.
