PCA are a Dublin and London based structural and civil engineering consultancy who specialise in providing expert analysis and design for architectural practices and the construction industry. The practice was founded in 2004 by the Principal Paul Cuddy.

Our product is simple “we provide expert design solutions using the latest software and the most up to date Codes of Practice, we provide them efficiently and we provide a service that represents value.”. This has been our core principle since our first project in February 2004. As a result, we continue to work with the same clients which we first established over 12 years ago. Over the past decade,we have continued to grow and have widened our field of expertise. We are one of the few small firms that have the capacity and expertise to deliver large scale projects. We have tailored our service to ensure optimum performance.

We specialise in structural design and detailing. Our expertise is enriched by our focus in this specialist area. This focus leads to cutting edge economical and innovative design in a meaningful way which is substantiated through our previous projects.
