Our Principles

As consulting engineers, we deliver comprehensive engineering solutions within the civil, structural, building services aspects of projects.

Our commitment, attention to detail and the planning of our projects is at the heart of our service. It is the foundation on which we design superior buildings and infrastructure for our clients.

The founding principles of our company are:

  • Delivering innovation in design
  • By designing buildings for the future
  • For projects which are led by experienced Directors
  • By understanding our client’s business requirements through partnership and collaboration

Innovation in Design

We design for the future. That means we take a holistic approach to your project. We take the time to understand your brief and the purpose of your project.

As we have been providing engineering solutions for over 170 years, we consider ourselves both at the forefront of new solutions but have both the individuals and company experience of delivering some of the most demanding and design complex projects across Scotland and the wider UK.

An innovative design culture means we think out of the box. We take a holistic approach and work collaboratively to deliver a sustainable design that meets your brief and budget.

Designing for the future

We will integrate Innovation with sustainable designs for the future. A key element of designing for the future is the environment.

We ensure your project meets the needs of the present without compromising future generations.

Our designs include sustainable options:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Emission reduction
  • Recycled materials
  • Offsite manufacture

Our vision is to provide engineering solutions that exceed expectations, through utilising both BIM, Revit and other current design software.

Hands on, experienced directors

What makes us unique is that as our client, your point of contact and relationship will be with one of our company Directors. To deliver on our founding principles you need an experienced director as your point of contact – we commit to this – all engineering Directors in our company are working Directors who actively participate in all stages of our projects.

They will be responsible for your project and be involved at all stages. This sense of ownership is the key element of our approach to project delivery.

Partnership and collaboration

We take the time to understand your business and how it works. Our approach is a collaborative working in partnership with you.

We work as part of a team to deliver your project on time and budget. Understanding through mutual trust and open and clear collaboration, the project requirements and individuals’ responsibilities and roles from the outset. We will listen to, and communicate the expectations required from all parties to achieve project success.

One of the benefits our experienced, hands on Directors offer is experience.
