Ciaran Wilson

Associate Director, Senior Electrical Engineer

BEng

I have over 13 years’ experience as an Electrical Building Services Engineer. I have been fortunate enough to work on a range of projects, from small-scale building installations to large commercial and industrial facilities. I have a passion to create innovative, efficient and sustainable building systems that meet the needs of clients and building occupants. I love to problem solve.

My experience in electrical engineering includes the design, installation, testing and commissioning of electrical systems in buildings. This includes power distribution, lighting, fire alarm and building automation systems. I have worked on renewable energy systems such as solar, wind power and energy storage solutions.

I like to build strong relationships with clients and contractors alike – ensuring that projects are delivered on time, on budget and to the highest standard. I have two national trade qualifications and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. I am also a professional member of Engineers Ireland. I am committed to ongoing professional development and it’s very important to me to stay up to date with the latest trends, technologies and regulations in the industry.

It's not all work and no play for me! I love to play music, classic car restoration, travelling and most importantly of all, spending time with family and friends.

Who am I?

I have always had a love for Cars, particularly Classic cars. It started when I was about 16 and bought a non-running 1982Austin mini from a friend for £250. My Dad towed it home for me and over a year it got it running, repaired the rust issues and eventually repainted it. Since then I have had various Classic cars ranging from lots of Mini’s, Clubman's, Ford Capris, and VW Scirocco to name a few. In 2007 I went to Australia where I bought a 1972 VW T2 Campervan. I drove the old van the whole way across Australia and back again.  

I decided to keep the van and put it in a shipping container and send it home to Ireland. Once home, with the help of my friend David, We fully restored the Van and converted it into a mobile coffee shop and it took on a whole new Life from there. Kombi Coffee was born.  For the next 4 years we catered at all the major outdoor festival across Ireland at the weekends. Great fun and no shortage of Go Go juice!
