Paul Mulcair UK Ltd

Working in Partnership

Diafora have been working with Paul Mulcair UK Ltd (PMUK Ltd) since early 2019 and have developed a strong working relationship in that time. We asked Robert O’Brien, Contracts Director of PM UK Ltd, to answer some questions about what he does, and what it is like to work with Diafora.

What is your role within PMUK Ltd?

As Contracts Director, I deal with the Contracts & Tenders for all our Civil Engineering Business in the UK & Ireland. I also oversee the day to day running of our projects, along with our Project Managers & Site Agents.

Describe the work that PMUK is involved in?

PMUK Ltd was formed over 25 Years ago, with the core ethos to not just meet our clients’ expectations but to exceed them, making us a partner, clients want to continue to work with. We believe in delivering excellence to the CIVIL Engineering sector by building trust, ensuring peace of mind, and value for our clients. Our company employs experienced staff, who have technical backgrounds in all aspects of Civil Engineering. We apply value engineering and innovation to achieve the best results for our clients using a common-sense approach, ensuring value for money, and delivering safely on time. We work together with our clients, professional teams, and supply chain to develop innovative and value adding solutions to our clients, thus ensuring client and end-user satisfaction.

How did you hear about Diafora?

I found Diafora through LinkedIn in the Civil Engineering sector. Diafora came highly recommended by many other companies & after an initial meeting with Phil Holden, we built up a great relationship and this still continues today. We have utilised Diafora’s full suite of expertise ever since. The only pity is we didn’t find Diafora before this point! 

What work have Diafora undertaken for you?

Diafora has provided PMUK Ltd with Quantity Surveying services since February 2019. We sought their assistance and introduction to a qualified program planner which really benefited our work scheduling given the contract deadlines. The scheduling really helped us to stay on top of deadlines. They offer a wealth of experience and knowledge & value for money. They are extremely professional & give great attention to detail. The great thing about Diafora is that no question is too big or too small. They are always happy to help with tendering or any sort of commercial support.

Where would you like to see PM UK Ltd in the next 10 years?

I would like to see PMUK Ltd continue to grow and develop in the coming years, delivering more contracts throughout the U.K. and Ireland and expanding into Europe. PMUK Ltd is also seeking to develop its business with the HS2 & Highways England. We are a focused and trusted specialist, and we prefer to focus on a small number of contracts at any one time

What do you hope that Diafora can bring to PMUK Ltd in the future?

Further professional support and expertise where necessary. Diafora have a wealth of contacts and consultants in our sector, and this allows us to work with a single partner providing external resource as and where we require this. It worked very well on our previous contracts and I am certain we will continue to work with Diafora in the future.

How has working with Diafora benefitted PMC UK Ltd?

Working with Diafora has benefited PMUK Ltd immensely and with the support we have received it has given us the confidence to consider much larger contracts. As the working relationship developed, and Diafora better understand PMC UK Ltd, and what we wanted to achieve. The support provided evolved with that understanding, and the work done by Diafora to date allows us to progress with confidence.

Would you recommend the services of Diafora?

I would highly recommend Diafora to any Civil Engineering businesses for all their Quantity Surveying and Project Control needs. Diafora offer a one stop shop for all commercial needs from tender to a completed project.
