We have great clients, the best projects and some truly exceptional people.
Bryn Griffiths
My focus is on driving value in the early stages of projects through optimisation of design, innovative benchmarking and cost modelling, whilst also securing best value through robust management of procurement and post-contract delivery. I also focus on people, having led teams delivering some of the largest and highest profile residential schemes in London, and now in Dublin. At the same time, I take a leading role in people development through the APC process as an assessor and mentor for the RICS and SCSI.

I currently lead a cost management team in Turner & Townsend's Dublin office delivering a variety of schemes within the residential, commercial, higher education, health and education sectors. Since relocating to Ireland in 2017, I’ve been working on a variety of residential projects including a large scale residential led regeneration scheme, build-to-rent apartment developments and various student accommodation projects in Dublin.

With 19 years’ experience in the industry, starting with a main contractor, I moved to a consultancy role after two years and this is where I have operated since, providing client focused support and advice. My experience includes residential, commercial and mixed use developments for major developer clients.

Q. Which project are you most proud of being involved in at Turner & Townsend?

A. We recently won a large mixed use development with one of the largest developer clients in Ireland who we have been targeting for some time. The scheme is in a prominent location on the South Quays in Dublin and includes 220nr build to rent apartments which is a key market for us here in Dublin.

Q. Detail any specialist skills or experience for which you are known

A. My experience in London gave me exposure to some unique insights into delivery of residential projects. I have a strong focus on design efficiency and benchmarking to drive value through the early stages of design to help our clients optimise their developments and improve their returns.

Q. What is the emerging trend in your industry specialism and how are you responding to this?

A. In Ireland, there’s been a shortage of residential delivery, particularly in urban centres, due to the lack of viability. The emergence of a recognised build to rent planning classification and the interest of investment funds in Dublin as a location means there is now some much needed apartment building happening. My experience of build-to-rent in the UK, and our ability to draw on the experience of our other offices has enabled us to position ourselves well with the developers seeking to develop build-to-rent projects.
