Structural Engineering

It is imperative that we continue to push the boundaries of Structural Engineering to ensure we allow Architects to deliver better spaces with tighter budgets. The design process will undoubtedly become more integrated as we progress from Level 2 to Level 3 BIM, and we need to remain pioneering experts in our field, not followers, to ensure subcontractors and proprietary providers integrate with our designs.

Why do you need us?

We can deliver a building that you can be proud of – Architecturally and Structurally and easy to construct. We are passionate about minimising construction costs and will exceed whatever is expected of us.

All projects are individual and we will have your best interest as our top priority. In order to achieve this we will:

  • Design a range of potential superstructure options to deliver the best solution.
  • Design to a Cost Code not just the Structural Engineering Code
  • Ask questions and test decisions to improve on what’s being delivered.
  • Propose alternatives whenever we can to reduce costs but not compromise on quality.

When do you need us?

Developers, Local Authority, House Builders, Estate Managers  – If you wish to building something then you need to contact us as soon as you have decided to go ahead.

Contractors – As soon as you have decided to tender for a contract to construct a building of any kind contact us – preferably before the tender comes out to give us as much time as possible to help you win it.
