In response to growing demand for our specialist expertise, Irwinconsult Façade Consulting was formed in mid-2016. Our Façade team offers the Irwinconsult standard of quality and innovative design, client service and accountability.

Our façade team can integrate with and complement the consulting services provided by our structures, building services, ESD and fire engineering disciplines to ensure a fully coordinated service allowing us to bring the Client brief and Architectural design intent to fruition.

Two highly experienced Façade Consultants lead this team.

Gerry Hobday provides overall leadership and guidance to the Façade Group. Gerry’s experience spans more than 40 years. Prior to joining Irwinconsult, Gerry was the lead designer for iconic projects throughout Hong Kong, Mainland China, Korea, Japan, the Middle East and Australia.

Unal Mehmet is Lead Façade Designer. Unal comes to Irwinconsult with over 30 years’ experience in commercial, residential and medical buildings, specialising in system design for projects in Australia, SE Asia and the Middle East. He has consulted on numerous high rise developments including new construction, building investigations and refurbishment. His knowledge of system performance, problem solving skills and the understanding of how different materials are used is only gained by experience.

The Façade Team also includes two Architect/Structural double-degree facade consultants, Steven Moran and Matt Ljujic.

We look forward to helping you and welcome the opportunity to partner and achieve successful project outcomes.
