Civil & Structural Engineering
Structural design is an integral part of our business. This enables us to provide professional and reliable advice to our clients. This is important for the telecoms industry. Sites that were once designed for small equipment are now required to be upgrade with more equipment which in many cases is larger. The structural implications of those upgrades can be profound.
Shire Consulting have both the expertise and the experience to help the client achieve the right solution. We can enable them to gain the performance they require form their site whilst at the same time protecting their assets and the structures to which they are fixed.
Shire Consulting provide structural advise to a range of clients – from building owners, network operators and principal contractors , right through to crane and platform operators.

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.Find out more
