Hi! I’m Michael…

I started my draughting career working and studying part time at an engineering firm in South Africa.

During my 10 years at this firm I gained a great deal of knowledge and learned the art of design and detailing. I worked in the design office designing cascade transfer chutes for the mining sector in SA and abroad.

This led me to spread my wings as a CAD technician and found myself on UK shores,  where I landed a position at one of the leading architectural metalwork companies in London. It was a challenge in the beginning and a bit of a culture shock but having previous experience with CAD and draughting standards it stood me in good stead to add architectural metalwork to my list of expertise. I quickly learned the trade and not before long I was offered a supervisory role, which I pursued.

I have worked on some high end projects in London i.e. Chelsea Barracks, Waterloo Station and Centre Point to name a few and have got to work with some of the leading designers, architects and engineers in the field who I have gained a great deal of knowledge from.

During this time I got the opportunity to move to Ireland. I always had in the back of my mind that I would one day start my own business, this was a great opportunity to pursue my dream, which led me to founder MCT Designs.

I have a passion for what I do and really get a great sense of pride when I see my designs come to life. It would be great to connect and discuss your project in detail.
