Structural engineering

Creativity, analysis, ingenuity and a touch of technical genius...we combine all of this to deliver exciting, efficient structures that go beyond expectations. Our unrivalled reputation with architects, contractors and specialists means we can always offer outstanding design solutions and outstanding value.

We use the most sophisticated techniques to test our buildings and their performance, meticulously analysing every minute detail from materials and building methods to costs, risk and sustainability, to ensure our clients always have complete confidence in us.

Our global experience means that we can build in the most demanding of climates; we approach every project as unique, as a challenge waiting to be solved. From temporary structures such as the stunning Polish Pavilion in Shanghai and intricate art instillations such as Voussoir Clouds, to iconic masterpieces such as the roof at the British Museum and the Louvre in Abu Dhabi, our structural engineers can make a vision a reality.
