Mechanical design

Atkins offers comprehensive mechanical design capability across the aerospace, defence, energy, water, rail and the built environment sectors.

We are able to turn complex engineering ideas into a technically viable reality by pulling together knowledge and expertise through our cross-discipline teamwork approach. Our flexibility enables us to adapt throughout the design process and interpret specific problems, allowing us to drive hard at a solution.

We provide highly skilled engineering solutions from concept feasibility, detailed design, finite element and computational fluid analysis to production of full manufacturing drawings in many diverse industries.

Our broad expertise has been gained through working in many engineering fields including tunnelling, movable bridges, movable structures, sub-sea oil production, aerospace, nuclear and materials handling. We have been involved in a number of high profile projects including the Channel Tunnel, the Falkirk Wheel, the Forth Road Bridge and Airbus A380.

Our problem solving skills and capabilities have been utilised across all areas of the nuclear sector including nuclear decommissioning, new build nuclear power generation plants, storage and handling. In addition, we have worked extensively within the nuclear defence industry.
