Digital engineering firm Tantek4D to create 30 jobs in Dublin and Sligo

26 Jul 2022

Tantek4D is opening a new office in the US and plans to increase its workforce in Ireland to meet a growing demand for its services nationwide.

Digital engineering company Tantek4D is creating 30 new jobs in Ireland to support its international expansion.

It is opening an office in the US to deliver its services to the architectural, engineering, construction and operations (AECO) industry in new markets.

Meanwhile, Tantek4D is growing its headcount at its Irish offices to fulfil a demand for services nationwide. The new jobs at its Dublin and Sligo offices will increase its existing workforce from 14 to 44.

The Sligo-headquartered company said the new roles will be created over the next 18 months in areas such as digital automation, digital project management, artificial intelligence, machine learning and geospatial surveying.

Founded in 2018 by Conor and Paul Tansey, Tantek4D has AECO clients throughout Ireland, Europe and the UK. As well as its Irish bases, it has another office in London.

The company assists client projects from design conception through to project completion, with digital technology services such as 4D building information modelling.

“The core values at the heart of the company seek to challenge existing norms and offer digitally innovative ways to consider existing workflows and processes,” CTO Paul Tansey said.

“As industry disruptors and innovators, new technological developments will continue to shape and inform Tantek4D’s strategy and expansion, including collaboration with companies that share a complementary vision.”

The company recently partnered with Bentley Systems, a US software development company. Tantek4D said this will help its clients in the UK and Ireland to accelerate project delivery and digitally enhance construction planning and operations.

Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail Damien English, TD, recently visited the company’s Sligo offices. English described the business as “an impressive Irish SME with immense global ambition”.

“Its growing success is a testament to the vision, hard work and resilience of Conor and Paul Tansey and their entire talented team working with them,” English added.

“Tantek4D are realising their potential from the heart of Sligo town and are part of a growing cohort of businesses who are driving employment and economic activity as well as being embedded in our communities.”

Tantek4D has appointed two new board members, Denis Browne and Tom O’Callaghan, to assist and oversee the company’s growth plans for 2022 and beyond.

Browne is a former regional operations director for Google Data Centres and O’Callaghan has extensive experience in the power and energy sector and provides consultancy to Irish, UK and European organisations.
