Tim Murnane joined PUNCH Consulting Engineers as a Design Engineer in 2001 in our Dublin office. He was promoted to the role of Regional Director in 2005. In 2009 Tim set up Murnane & Partners Consulting Engineers and following a strategic merger between Murnane and Partners and PUNCH in 2014, Tim became a Director of Punch Consulting Engineers. He subsequently became Managing Director in 2017.
Tim graduated from Queens University Belfast with a first class honours degree in Civil Engineering. He then moved to London where he worked for The Ove Arup Partnership on a range of heavy Civil Engineering railway structures mainly in South East Asia and also on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link in the UK. Tim also worked for a multi-national contractor Kier Group while in London as part of his training programme with the Institution of Civil Engineers UK.
On returning to Ireland, he joined PUNCH Consulting Engineers and worked on a number of the most prestigious projects in the country, which included large scale multi use developments, public sector projects and motorway bridges.
In 2009 Tim set up Murnane and Partners Consulting Engineers which grew steadily despite the economic recession. This experience of growing a new business in such an economic climate has honed Tim’s business skills considerably which are now being put to use in the PUNCH organisation.
Tim is a Fellow of Engineers Ireland (FIEI) and a Chartered Member of The Institution of Civil Engineers UK (MICE). He is also Fellow of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland (FConsEI).
Tim has a young family which he gladly devotes most of his spare time to. He is very proud of his West Cork roots and some even claim that he is a rather “biased” Cork GAA supporter.
