Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow

Mera – Structural and Civil Engineers

Welcome to Mera. We provide specialist consultation for the Kildare, Dublin and Wicklow areas in the Mid-East regions of Ireland. We operate within the public and private sectors, offering detailed structural & civil engineering design services from project inception through to handover and beyond.

We aspire to work with our customers to provide a range of services, from the investigation of potential sites to the detailed structural design of multi-storey buildings. Our engineers are expert in working with all materials including steel, reinforced concrete, timber, and load-bearing masonry, landscaping, roofing, groundworks.

Most notably the company specialises in Structural Engineers’ Reports on domestic properties, both for domestic clients themselves, and at the request of loss adjusters acting on behalf of insurance companies. This work usually involves the design and contract administration of schemes involving underpinning, structural repairs and other remedial and redecoration works.

As a whole Mera are regularly involved in domestic property alterations. The Practice will design loft conversions, lintels for doorways or other openings, and steel beams to replace load-bearing walls. We’ll always try to go that extra mile and so if required to do so, we will obtain the necessary Planning and Building Regulation approval on your behalf. We also carry out structural designs of substantial private houses for local architects and developers.

Our Skills & Expertise

We have the skills and expertise to undertake the most complex and challenging structural engineering work.
We are available to assist clients by offering planning advice relating to how the proposed structural design could affect the cost and aesthetics of the job and can offer advice relating to legislation processes.

Our Engineers

We work alongside our clients and use our specialist knowledge and experience to ensure that they are given informed guidance and advice that will help them meet their building aspirations.

Our structural engineers work hard to ensure that all of the residential projects that we work on are of the highest quality.

We want our clients to be left with a living space that has its own identity, is sustainable, practical and meets all their expectations.

Design & Investigation

We design of all types of concrete, steel, brick and timber structures in the industrial, commercial and domestic sectors. Foundation designs are also produced for all types of ground conditions. Our services also include the investigation of building defects and advice on the technical aspects of insurance claims. We have a wealth of experience in the investigation of structural and Geo technical issues especially on sites vulnerable to subsidence and landslip.

Civil Engineeers

Using experiences acquired over the years Mera has been able to assist our clients in a variety of ways to find the most cost effective solutions. These include:

We pride ourselves on our trusted reputation, being approved to the latest Quality Assurance standard. We remain committed to this high level of quality, continuing to develop and improve our practice to provide the best service we possibly can to our clients. Staff regularly attend both in-house and external training seminars and maintain CPD to the requirements of the Institution of Structural Engineers.

Regardless of our placement in the work, we take a positive approach to the engineering design whilst providing cost effective solutions, fully coordinated teams, sustainable and efficient schemes that can be tailored, on budget, and on a tight time-frame. We aim to be creative and collaborate within the team to encourage the same high quality approach whilst ensuring that we can foster an atmosphere of innovation.

Structural Engineering remains at our core but we have extensive expertise in civil engineering enabling us to provide a comprehensive engineering service complete with multi-disciplinary consultants. We undertake all types of design work as have our own team of architects that can map out your home, your driveway, undertake roofing schematics and more.

Keeping the teams, clients and shareholders involved in all aspects of the projects is key to providing stability and a seamless operation. We encourage early stakeholder consultation process to ensure our clients ideas and aspirations are clearly detailed out. We will always endeavour to deliver to those expectations as a standard.

Expertise ranges from structural surveys of residential and commercial properties to the production of designs, details and specifications for major new build and refurbishment projects. All design and detailing is undertaken in accordance with current Irish and European Design Standards and Codes of Practice. We invest in keeping ourselves fully trained and informed of developments in the industry, including Modern Methods of Construction.

Mera was built upon a desire to celebrate structure, push the envelope of structural engineering and provide a dynamic workplace where engineers can grow both professionally and creatively.

We purposefully take on projects that allow us to flex our creative muscles and broaden the complexity of the workload within the studio, and have built a reputation for creative, considered problem solving.

We seek out and have built long-standing partnerships with forward thinking Architects and Developers who are driven by a need to elevate the quality of the built environment. Our collaborative process means we work alongside our clients from the earliest stages of a project. Approaching structural engineering as an inherent part of the design process allows us to create cost-effective solutions and deliver elegantly resolved structures that enhance buildings.

If you would like to email us to either request a Structural Engineer Report or find out more about them, please get in touch.

Our Structural & Civil team works in the same office space, which offers us opportunities to pollinate new and innovative ideas that may have been brought in for one specific sector that we can see may bring benefits in another. This close proximity of engineering teams also allows us to be flexible with our resources to suit the demands on projects.

At Mera, we take pride in developing long term relationships, and as a result a large proportion of our work comes from repeat business and personal recommendation in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow. We work closely with our clients, and their project teams, to achieve solutions through innovation and engineering excellence.

We believe that the principles of sustainability should be integrated naturally at all stages of the engineering design process and consider issues such as life-cycle management, the sustainability of materials and waste minimization as a matter of routine, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of the work we undertake.

We look forward to meeting and working with you.
