The Directors

Tim O’ Driscoll

Tim O’ Driscoll began working for O’Keeffe’s Insulation Services as their very first fireproofing operative in 1994. Through his abilities he quickly became site manager for the company.

Throughout the years he has seen many changes in standard, quality, products, design and safety and has lead the way in the implementation of these on the sites he has managed. He has successfully managed some of the biggest sites in Ireland and the majority of the pharmaceutical sites in Munster.

He left O’Keeffe’s in 2000 to pursue a career with Cork County Fire Service as a fireman where he excelled and gained valuable experience in the fighting of fires.

He returned in 2004 to O’Keeffe’s and carried on where he left off but with a greater knowledge of fire proofing requirements. He has handled numerous jobs, some of which are listed below.

He has been responsible for winning many awards from contractor of the month on several occasions and helped to reach a million safe man hours on numerous contracts.

He now feels his experience would be best served in offering his services to the industry and clients directly, which instigated the setting up of TKA Firestopping Specialists.
