Creative Thinking in Precast Concrete

Peter Flynn is Technical Director of Techrete’s Irish office at Howth, near Dublin, a company which offers specialist technical and manufacturing skills in architectural precast concrete cladding. A structural engineer, he heads the drawing office team of more than 40 engineers/draftsmen. He spent 12 years working with architects in multi-disciplinary practices such as BDP and RMJM prior to joining the company. He now works on behalf of the manufacturer with top architects such as Foster & Partners, Terry Farrell and many others, to develop the precast products they need to achieve their design intentions. Cladding is a complex process and demands a lot of time and energy. Projects may be prestigious, in sensitive locations where high-tech solutions need to look traditional, and often involve innovative ideas. He delights in his work, particularly in sitting down with fellow professionals Kathy Stansfield
