"Our engineers contribute holistically to all projects, crossing traditional profession boundaries to stimulate creative thinking and adding huge value for our clients." John Roycroft, chair of civil and structural engineering
We design intelligent infrastructure that impacts positively on the planet. Our work spans the full range of infrastructure types globally, connecting places and improving quality of life: From masterplanning cities to flood risk assessments; from transport interchanges to sustainable urban realms.
Our civil and structural engineering teams are proactive in anticipating and solving challenges. We work closely with architects, both in-house and outside BDP, to challenge thinking and push the boundaries of conventional design. As a team, we advise clients from the earliest conceptual stages through to the completion of award winning, landmark projects across all sectors.
Our approach rests on applying technology to refine design, increase efficiency and improve buildability, and all our engineers recognise the importance of contributing positively in a creative way to the total building design. We work closely with the whole design team, focusing on what can be achieved with lateral thinking while respecting constraints and maintaining a healthy respect for the defence of gravity.
