Structural & Civil Consultants Ltd
Structural and Civil Consultants Ltd is a North-East based company offering a wide range of professional engineering services.
The firm has the unique advantage of having a team of senior engineers with unrivalled expertise in their fields, who remain directly involved in detailed design work and project management. This gives the company all the benefits of a small and friendly office, yet with the qualities of an international, highly-skilled organisation. The specialist areas reflect the diverse expertise of the directors:
- large-scale steel design;
- historic conservation and design
- forensic investigation
- low-carbon timber design
- structural design
- domestic alterations and new build and surveys.
The directors are both acknowledged leaders in their fields and are Fellows of both the ICE and IStructE. Robert Thorniley-Walker has been North-East Regional Chair of ICE and Joe Foley is past Regional Chair of IStructE. The company also has one of the few Accredited Conservation Engineers in the North East and both directors act as advisers and lecturers for a number of professional groups, journals, and committees.
In December 2015, Robert Thorniley-Walker was chosen as one of three key-note speakers for the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) at the Paris Climate Change Conference.
