Structural Engineering

Structural engineering is at the heart of Thomasons’ business.

Our highly qualified and experienced engineers play a key role in design and construction teams, working alongside architects and other professionals to create designs that deliver innovative and cost effective solutions for our clients.

Our CARE Accredited and Conservation trained Structural Engineers play a key role in working sensitively on the nation’s heritage assets, including listed buildings and ancient monuments

Our engineers also investigate and diagnose building defects in both old and new structures to extend the useful life of existing properties.


We are passionate about good engineering, applying our expertise from the simplest to the most complex engineering challenge. Put simply, we enjoy working with people and love what we do.

Our expertise spans structural projects of all types – from private homes to  high-rise structures, housing developments, retail parks, town centre regenerations and major redevelopments of acute hospitals.

We work on temporary, new and historic structures – from pop-up shops and cutting-edge new properties to some of the UK’s best loved old buildings – drawing on the very latest design techniques and sustainable materials technology.

We are often called upon to solve structural challenges for more unusual projects; these have included deployable tents for disaster areas and Europe’s highest Christmas tree.
