Tandem Project Management Ltd. wish to congratulate Ciara O’Connor on her nomination for the Joe Gantly Award.
The Joe Gantly prize in Engineering is awarded to the Best Student on the Work Placement module in the BE (Hons) Programmes at UCC.
Ciara undertook her work placement with Tandem in 2019 and was nominated for this prize based on her exemplary engineering work. Four students were nominated, and on this occasion, Ciara was awarded a runner up prize.
Tandem is extremely proud of the work Ciara undertook during her placement and we look forward to welcoming her back this year as part of the Tandem team.
We were delighted to welcome a number of Transition Year students to our headquarters in February. The purpose of the visit was to give the students an insight into engineering as a potential career option.
We had a packed agenda for the week which included presentations from representatives of our engineering departments covering Process, Mechanical, CSA, Electrical, Project Management, Project Controls and Revit/3D design. These presentations gave the students a good insight into the diverse nature of engineering design, and the many career opportunities it offers. On Friday each of the students gave a presentation on everything that they had learned during the week.
All-in-all it was a great week for everyone involved. We hope the students enjoyed their experience and are inspired to pursue a future career in engineering with Tandem Project Management Ltd.
Tandem Project Management Ltd. is proud to announce our 2020 CSR partnership with Focus Ireland.
Focus Ireland reports that as of November 2019, there were 10,448 people homeless in Ireland. This figure includes adults and children. The number of homeless families has increased by over 300% since November 2014 and more than one in three people in emergency accommodation is a child. These numbers do not include people who are ‘sofa surfing’, availing of domestic abuse refuges or sleeping rough.
Focus Ireland provide long term housing to people at risk of homelessness and a resettlement service to people moving out of homelessness and into a new home. They provide advice and information to identify the best available supports and options, in the first instance to avoid homelessness, but also to those recently homeless. Focus Ireland provide a youth housing and after care service to vulnerable young adults coming out of state care with no options for housing.
This year Tandem will act as Business Network Ambassadors for Focus Ireland, participate in housing maintenance and remediation projects, attend events and undertake fundraising activities. Tandem are proud to partner Focus Ireland and to play a part in stemming the tide of homelessness in Ireland.
We look forward to a worthwhile and engaging partnership with Focus Ireland for 2020.
Tandem take great pride in supporting the continuing professional development of our people. Since 2017, Tandem has been recognised by Engineers Ireland for the quality of, and commitment to continuous professional development systems and practices for our staff. Following our re-accreditation audit in December 2019, we are delighted to announce that we have received the maximum award duration of three years.
According to Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the systematic maintenance, enhancement and development of knowledge and skill, and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties, it is the process of lifelong learning.
Tandem see the benefits of our CPD programme in very real terms of staff retention, bringing the most up to date expertise to our clients, thought leadership from within, innovation and continued strong relationships with our clients.
One of the strengths of our CPD Committee is the cross section of departments involved, ensuring that, company-wide, everyone in Tandem is aware of the programme, receives updates regularly and is encouraged in their own personal career development.
Tandem celebrates their achievement in obtaining our CPD reaccreditation and remains committed to developing our CPD programme further.

As part of our CSR Programme, Tandem Project Management Ltd.’s engineers volunteered for the Engineers Ireland STEPS Young Engineers Award Programme.
The Engineers Ireland STEPS Programme is a non-profit outreach programme that promotes interest and awareness of engineering as a future career. The STEPS Young Engineers Award 2020 is a competition that asks 3rd and 4th class students all over the country to design an engineering project that would help their community.
As part of the award curriculum, our engineers visited participating schools in Cork and Waterford during the week 25th – 29th November. The visit included a presentation from the engineers on engineering as a career and the students then presented their projects to the engineers. After the presentations, it was time for fun and learning with games designed by STEPS to open the students minds to engineering in their local environment and to the processes involved in a design and build project. It was a fantastic opportunity for young students to become more aware of engineering in the world around them and to see what it feels like to walk in the shoes of an engineer.
The level of engagement from the students was enlightening, our engineers reported very bright young minds concerned with topics such as homelessness, climate change and single use plastics pollution. The experience of presenting to students, broadening their understanding of what engineering is, hearing their ideas and discussing practical ways that they can move forward with their projects was heartening for our engineers, they all reported a desire to get involved again next year.
Tandem wish all the students luck with their entries for the Young Engineers Award, finalists will be announced during Engineers Week, February 29th – March 6th, 2020.
