Buildings have always been at the centre of engineering. From ancient pyramids to modern skyscrapers, and from a family home to the most advanced laboratories, buildings are diverse and hold a beloved place in our hearts.
As technology and economics change, the best engineering adapts and capitalises on the new opportunities to build better and achieve more. From our modest beginnings in 1926, we have grown to become one of the leading structural engineering consultancies in the world. We have built and revived iconic structures like Centre Point, life-saving facilities like the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children and innovative education centres like Blavatnik School of Government.
Our reputation for excellence is reinforced by our portfolio of projects and clients who recognise and appreciate our innovative and cost effective approach to projects which include office developments, banks, hospitals, retail malls and parks, residential, sports and leisure facilities, hotels, schools, courts, and unique hi-technology science and manufacturing facilities.
At the core of our business, we have a proven ability to adapt and change with the changing aspirations and challenges of developers, owners, and occupants. To lift the competitive performance of a building project, or to help it find funding in tough markets, we combine commercial, design and technical expertise.
How we Help: Buildings
- Materials Utilisation - New technology can cut material use, opening up internal space with fewer columns and less load-bearing structure
- Rail Adjacency - In major cities, land is at a premium. The ability to build close to, over and under infrastructure is invaluable
- Vibration cancellation - Modern scientific facilities use equipment of such precision that ambient vibration is a price too high
- Facade Retention - We have achieved what is believed to be the highest facade retention on the planet
