About us

We are a trusted and highly experienced team of civil and structural engineers who consult on all types of projects from domestic, commercial and industrial developments.

Visit our Projects page to get an insight into the work we have been involved with.

We offer the same level of service on all projects, from a simple wall removal to a multi- million pound new build.  Thanks to our friendly and approachable design team, our clients receive a bespoke, personalised service with high quality workmanship and keen attention to detail.

We regularly work alongside other professionals to make sure we meet all client design briefs.

As well as providing all the standard structural engineering services we also work closely with leading timber frame designers and specialist steel fabricators across the UK to deliver expert consultancy and design to high specifications for this specialist work.

Our key values

We’ve been trusted in the construction industry for over 34 years, providing innovative engineering solutions which respond intelligently to brief, budget, scale and constraints. From small-scale extensions to large multi-millon pound developments, our clients rely on our transformative thinking to bring projects of varying complexity to fruition.


We believe that engineers should be approachable at all stages of a project, which is why our clients deal directly with members of our team from planning to completion. Positive relationships matter to us, which is why our people stay loyal and we proudly nurture long-
lasting relationships with our clients.



We recognise the impact our designs can have on the climate. Whether it’s repurposing existing structural forms or working with sustainable materials, we seek to work with clients to improve the carbon impact of a building’s lifecycle.

We are a friendly and approachable team of engineering specialists, many of whom have stayed with us throughout the majority of their careers.


Our engineers are relied upon to provide expert consultancy, honest and pragmatic advice, and transformative thinking – and, crucially, are on hand to support clients throughout all stages of a project.
