Paul Molumby Director of Currency and Facilities Management had to say about Walls.

The Central Bank emphasised from the outset that the contractor/ client relationship needed to be based upon a spirit of partnership given the challenging programme and high quality requirements of the project. Walls comvmitted to this approach willingly and Cathal is delivering upon it, being always available and responsive to the Design Team and the client in an open an transparent way. His leadership is a key factor in dealing with problems as they arise and ensuring that successful delivery remains the priority for all parties. Cathal appears to be as comfortable getting his team to meet milestones as he is demonstrating his own technical capabilities when working alongside the design team and ourselves. He presents as a competent and professional Construction Manager which, combined with his work ethic and concern for the highest standards, makes working with him a rewarding and productive experience.
