Milligan Reside Larkin - MRL - RIBA RIAI


At the turn of the Century, SW Reside, Chief Area Engineer, established an Architectural and Engineering practice which rapidly became the principal consultancy in South Down.  He was later joined by his son, Major GW Reside BSc RIBA MICEI JP OBE who continued to practice full-time - providing Architectural, Civil and Structural Engineering and Survey and Mapping services. During Major Residue’s tenure as Practice Principal, he was appointed to the Board of DOE (NI) Historic Monuments and Buildings Council. In 1987 RS Milligan acquired the practice, with GW Reside retained as Consultant.   
Conveniently located almost centrally between Belfast and Dublin, the practice, now known as Milligan & Reside, provided design services on a regular basis throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The practice has developed significantly and has built up an impressive client base within both public and private sector with many repeat commissions. In response to the continuing development in the retail and commercial sector, Eamon Larkin BSc (Hons) DAAS RIBA, joined the practice in 1994, became a Partner in 1995 focusing on the management of the commercial and retail sectors of the practice portfolio.   
In response to an on-going development programme, the partnership of Milligan Reside Larkin was re-formed as a limited company – Milligan Reside Larkin Ltd and with a developing client base the management structure has been expanded to address this need and ensure future succession.
