Civil and Structural Engineering
Shire Consulting was formed during 1988 in the belief that many clients were dissatisfied with the traditional reactive response of Engineers. The company aims to have an active involvement in projects and has grown steadily. Individual commissions up to a value of £20M have been completed.
A reputation for being “Thinking Engineers” has led to a varied workload in the Civil, Structural and Highway Sectors.
Shire Consulting has received numerous awards for design and innovation. Recent awards for building design include 2010 RIBA Architecture Award for the ‘Zero Carbon House’ in Birmingham, the 2013 RIBA West Midlands Award for the Michael Baker Boathouse, King’s School, 2013 RIBA North East Award for Yarm School Auditorium and the 2013 RIBA West Midlands Award for St Georges Primary School.
From its Engineering base, Shire Consulting has expanded into the Geotechnical, Planning and Telecommunications sectors. Sister companies Shire Structures and QuickBase offer Piling, Repair, Subsidence and Foundation services.
