John became a partner in the practice in 1999 following a period working in Edinburgh and London. His work often involves the adaptation of old buildings for new uses.
His projects include the restoration of Richmond Barracks, Dublin as a museum and cultural centre and Strancally Castle, a 19th century gothic revival private house.
He is one of a small number of conservation accredited engineers in Ireland. The conservation of masonry ruins is a long-established specialty of the practice and John has overseen works to Youghal, Carrick-on-Suir and Cashel town/city walls as well as ecclesiastical ruins in Cork, Tipperary and Offaly.
His new building work includes the Grassland Institute in Moorepark, Fermoy for Teagasc and various expansion projects, including office extensions, warehousing, and a high bay industrial building for Architectural and Metal Systems Ltd. in Little Island, Cork.
He is also qualified to act as Project Supervisor Design Process and has fulfilled this role in tandem with the role of structural engineer on a number of projects.
