TOBIN Consulting Engineers were proud to have formed part of the project team (Civil and Structural Engineers) which successfully delivered the Tipperary Town Council which received the award for best Civil Engineering Project at the LAMA [Local Authority Membership Association Awards] 2013.
The €13.5 million Design Build project was declared the winner in the category of Best Civil Engineering Project. This category is for an outstanding civil engineering project that has been completed in the past 3 years and is for projects that incorporate both unique and innovative design solutions or may offer the public new services or a level of convenience that was not available before. This Civil Engineering project was noted as being “a powerful cultural symbol, or a landmark structure”.
