Structural Design

Structural Design

You know how much experience it takes to create an efficient structural design that will fulfil both your vision and your practical requirements. 

We have extensive experience in the design of a wide range of structures, from buildings of all shapes and sizes to complex support structures for industrial applications as well as the right tools to model and analyse structures to make sure that the constructed product meets current codes of practice.

Our engineers are familiar with all of the commonly used materials, in particular concrete, steel, timber and masonry.

In the design of buildings, our focus is always on creating an effective design that will fulfil your and your architect's vision. We support and encourage ambitious, iconic design. At the same time we help to make sure that the design team and client are aware of the structural efficiencies of any proposals and their potential impact on programme and cost. We do this through effective feasibility reporting in the initial project stages, through to detailed analysis and presentation of viable alternatives during face-to-face discussions.

Our structural design work often brings together many of our specialist areas of expertise - from mining risk and geotechnical advice to flood risk assessment, ecology, landscaping, the final structural analysis of the building and the infrastructure that connects it to the outside world.
