Our Company Culture

We are powered by our people. Shanahan Engineering is all about our teams – from craft labour through to senior leadership; people are what make our business great.  We believe it’s vital to create a great working culture because it’s only when our employees feel happy, safe and valued that they can provide the best level of service to our customers.

Here is just some of what we do to encourage a great working environment:
