Commercial

From award-winning, inspirational new office space to the most practical and functional of commercial space, we apply our wide-ranging skills to deliver flexible, efficient, accessible, sustainable and high value buildings.

Our work in the commercial sector includes:

  • High-profile new office developments
  • Hi-tech facilities that include a significant amount of corporate office space
  • Refurbishment of heritage buildings and dated stock to regenerate their commercial viability
  • Commercial space within mixed-use developments
  • Training facilities
  • Office space as part of specialist facilities for the emergency services, the defence sector and prisons.

We work with developers, architects, contractors and end users. Through delivering a full multi-disciplinary engineering service we understand the role engineering plays in defining and creating value in commercial property. 

Our engagement starts early with a feasibility study that focuses on the key issues to determine the viability of a site: access, flood risk and land quality. We then take a development through pre-planning design, planning approval, detailed design and on to construction. 

Our involvement in the development of commercial space includes foundation design, on-site and off-site highways access, all supporting civils and infrastructure, for example associated car parking, the structural engineering design of the building, travel plans, and the building performance through M&E services, energy usage, acoustics and fire engineering. 

All our work is delivered to a minimum of BIM Level 2 and we also actively support our clients in their ambition to secure appropriate BREEAM accreditations.

Ultimately, we focus on optimising the value, potential and the whole-life performance of commercial buildings, creating spaces that inspire, are enjoyed by their users, promote the health and well-being of their users and are fully sustainable.
