About Us

Our Story

Established in 1997 by Padraig Whelan, ICON Engineering has earned its reputation for quality engineering solutions. We specialise in the commissioning, qualification and maintenance of Air, Water and Cleanroom environments, and are committed to the excellence of our work.  

Having qualified with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the newly-founded University of Limerick, Padraig spent years working in the field of Commissioning & Qualification Engineering. He soon realised the number of clients that could benefit from the diverse set of skills he had developed and from this realisation arose a company dedicated to imagining and fulfilling quality, customer-focused engineering solutions to an ever-growing client base.  

20 years on and ICON Engineering has evolved into a specialist engineering contractor, involved in a wide variety of projects, from initial consultation, through project management, and extending to final project hand-over and sign-off. The company is equally capable of the development and costing of large scale engineering works, having a wealth of experience working in a broad spectrum of projects and environments from 80-storey office blocks, through Commercial, Industrial, Pharmaceutical and large-scale Residential projects.

While both the company and the number of happy clients has expanded dramatically over the years, our commitment to quality and thoroughness remains unchanged; we believe in excellence at every step of the process.
