We had a chat with Luke Hyland of Luke Hyland Engineering Consultancy recently about what a busy year 2017 has been for him.
Luke has run his engineering consultancy business from Portlaoise Enterprise Centre since 2010. A native of The Heath, Luke is a Chartered Engineer who has in excess of fifteen years experience dealing with a wide variety of engineering consultancy commissions. These briefly include full civil and structural design for residential and commercial developments, conducting building condition assessments for property purchasers, preparation and advice for fire certificate applications, full planning permission applications, engineering reports for dispute resolution to include boundaries, personal injury, road traffic accidents etc. A full list of services is also available on his website – www.lukehyland.ie
In 2017 the Laois Local Enterprise Office relocated back to the Laois County Council buildings at County Hall making some office space available within Portlaoise Enterprise Centre. Luke jumped at the chance to avail of this great opportunity to expand his office and hasn’t looked back since. 2017 also saw Luke shortlisted as one of the Laois county finalists in the IBYE awards (Best Established Business category) which he describes as “an opportunity to meet and network with incredible entrepreneurs and business people”. He was also one of the speakers at the 10th anniversary lunch celebrations at Portlaoise Enterprise Centre where he described how important the Centre had been to him when starting and growing his business.
