We have had lots of interest from clients and architects in our new venture – already we have managed to get ourselves involved in a number of fledgling projects from schools and studios through to an ice rink.

Our timber expertise (especially CLT) seems to be popular but we are also finding projects keen for some clarity in engineering strategy. We are extending our interrogations on these early stage projects to costing of structural works – something we do on our timber structures that we are now doing with steel and concrete.

It is immensely important that engineers understand not just the structural impact of their decisions but also the cost and carbon impact too.
