Structural design & assessments

We provide a strong structural engineering capability comprising highly trained engineers and technicians whose combined flair and expertise bring challenging projects like Dubai Metro and Newport City Footbridge to reality.

Atkins has been involved in a diverse and challenging range of projects which have tested and expanded our design and engineering skills.

We adapt how we work to respond to the pace, scale and geographic location of our projects. Our structural engineering services can be provided at any stage of a project, either as a single or multidiscipline commission, to integrate with specific project demands, requirements or amendments.

Building design and structures

Our service offering spans initial advice for business cases and feasibility studies through concept and detailed design stages to full construction and production information.

With current trends of increasingly complex building geometries, we have developed techniques which better integrate our analysis and drawing computer models. We utilise contemporary computer software packages to undertake analysis, design and specialist assessment such as vibration, dynamic response and fire resistance.

Ultimately, our most important design tool is the creativity, technical skills and experience of our designers and their ability to communicate complex ideas simply with a pen on a piece of paper. Meet some of our engineers.

In the aerospace sector

Atkins has more than 10 years’ experience of aircraft primary structures, including fuselage and wings. The services we offer in this area include design and analysis, as well as unrivalled knowledge of the methods required to harness the full potential of the latest carbon fibre reinforced plastics.
