One of Ireland’s most progressive architecture firms, PLM has announced that it is rebranding it’s business as Meitheal Design Partners. The move comes on the back of a period of significant growth and development for PLM. Founded in 2004 By Patrick O Toole, Luke Hickson and Mark Dignam, PLM is headquartered in Cork also has offices in Kenmare and Dublin. With immediate effect, the firm will be known as Meitheal Design Partners. The word ‘Meitheal’ encompasses the old Irish expression of the ancient and universal appliance of co-operation within a group to ensure all succeed in achieving their goal.

Commenting on the rebrand Patrick O Toole, Managing Partner of Meitheal said ‘We decided to rebrand the firm as Luke, Mark and I believe that PLM no longer adequately reflects who we are, what we do and the values by which we operate. PLM is clearly synonymous with Luke, Mark and I but our success to date and our future development will be delivered through the hard work and talent of so many more people on our team. We chose Meitheal as we believe that it perfectly conveys our vision of a team bound by a common purpose. A team that is passionate not just about great design but also about great teamwork and integrity, which are fundamental values by which we live and work, and about how we engage with, and act on behalf of our valued client base.  The landscape for architecture firms is constantly changing and we recognise the need to change with it.   The rebrand highlights the growth and evolution of our brand and the essential need to embrace this’

O Toole continues, ‘We anticipate that this evolution will assist us in demonstrating to our clients that we fully share their vision, their dream, their objectives and that we will apply our talent, experience and creativity not only to deliver, but to, inspire, challenge, educate and support’

Meitheal design partners boast an impressive portfolio of projects with Irish and internationally recognised clients, including the recently announced landmark development at the high-profile Port of Cork site. Other clients include Musgrave Retail Partners Ireland, KBC Bank, renowned hospitality providers such as the Sheen Falls Hotel, Montenotte Hotel & the Reardens Group, the HSE, PepsiCo, as well as an exceptionally well regarded single home and multi-unit residential portfolio.
