Lorcan Doyle – Commercial Manager

Lorcan Doyle has been working as an associate of Shane Egan since 2017 and finally joined SECON permanently in 2019.  Lorcan is a Quantity Surveyor having graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and Economics from Dublin Institute of Technology in 2006.  Prior to joining SECON, Lorcan was head of the surveying department for a UK based construction company working in the prime residential market in London, Oxford and The Cotswolds.  Lorcan has experience of estimating, tendering value engineering, procurement and cost control on construction projects up to €20m in value – he is very aware that price alone does not determine the success of a construction project and that genuine collaboration with the client, architect, engineers and consultant team is the key to success.

What We Do


We have a strong background in carpentry and shop fitting that complements our general contracting experience.  This enables us to build and fit out commercial, light industrial and office buildings from concept to turnkey completion.


The dream of building your own home is very achievable in Ireland.  It can be a long process from planning through to the point that you move in.  We have gone through the journey on countless occasions and always delivered to the highest expectations of our clients, their architects, interior designers and engineers.


We have a Project Management and Quantity Surveying team in house.  Modern construction projects demand a lot from design teams and from clients.  As a builder we aim to supplement the team with our management knowledge so that delivery is always on time, to the highest standard of quality and within budget.


Secon is lucky to have built strong relationships with local schools and sports associations.  We have the experience and expertise to deliver under tight time constraints and even tighter budgets.  It is essential to the educational projects in particular that we can be flexible and reactive in working around school timetables and term holidays.


Through our network of industry associates and colleagues we can offer to provide design input into projects.  The design and build method of construction is universally known to provide continuity to a project.  This continuity feeds into the speed that a project can be built and ultimately benefits quality and cost also.


We work hard with our supply chain to ensure the buildings that we deliver achieve the best BER possible under the design parameters.  We have great experience in the most modern insulating, heating and cooling systems.  We are keen to share our knowledge with all of our clients and design teams to help deliver efficient properties with low energy use.
