Research & Development

Research & Development

We love a challenge! We were first asked to find a solution for repairing terraced houses in the City of London that had restricted access but needed structural support. That was in 1998 and the Shire Pile was created. Since then the R&D team at Shire have developed more products with a focus on restricted access, concrete-free, easy to install, removable and recyclable for a wide variety of applications. And there are plenty more solutions on the way. Contact us if you have an engineering challenge we can help to solve.
