Structural Engineering Design
We provide a full range of structural engineering services across all industry sectors - from large mixed-use new build developments, through to one-off residential refurbishments.
As well as mainstream construction materials, such as timber, steel and concrete, we work with a wide selection of other materials which has expanded our knowledge and exercised our ability to approach unusual problems and solve them in a practical and considered way. Our work with stone is one of many vindications of our approach. After working on our first stone project six years ago we have become one of the UK’s top stone engineering consultancies.
As well as general structural building design, we carry out inspections and surveys of existing buildings, design for temporary works, and a range of preplanning advice, including contamination desk studies and Basement Impact Assessments.
Building Services Design
Andrew Lerpiniere leads our building services engineering team. Having worked at Arup for two decades, he brings to the team an impressive background in arts and culture, which includes a pioneering approach to passive environmental control for galleries – now an industry benchmark.
As well as covering conventional building services engineering – mechanical, electrical and public health engineering – we specialise in renewable technology integration, low energy design and sustainability. We collaborate closely with our clients on newly completed and existing buildings to ensure they have a building with services that work properly, and can be used and maintained easily.
Civil Engineering Design
Our civil engineering services cover pavement and drainage design, ground and hydraulic modelling, flood risk assessments, SuDS and traffic impact assessments. Working closely with our structural and building services engineering teams, we can offer a combined service which benefits from close coordination with the team, as well as a standalone service.
Our architectural services cover multiple sectors - residential, commercial, infrastructure, public realm and public art, town centre regeneration and temporary projects – from the feasibility stages right through to project handover. We can act as lead consultant and Principal Designer on projects and have expertise in CDM and Building Information Modelling (BIM) coordination.
