Shire has been working within the telecommunications industry since 1996, beginning with supporting Orange PCS on the their 2G & 3G roll out and upgrade programme. Since then we have gone on to work with all UK mobile operators in all areas of structural and electrical design. From providing overall project management support through to specialist design advice direct to the operators own design engineers. We can provide design solutions for Macrocell, Microcell and In-build orientated projects.
Telecommunications Design Services
Our teams are highly trained in a wide variety of project management skills. Dedicated Project Managers are allocated to each project to ensure they are completed on time, in full, using the best resources & skills for that project.
The team at Shire Consulting can provide specialised design services right where they are needed – on site. At initial Multi-Skilled Visits (MSV’s), a qualified structural engineer and electrical engineer can attend site, to ensure that the client walks away with a workable design solution.
Site Audits / Feasibility Study
Our in-house Geotechnical resources give us speedy access to soils information so that appropriate foundation solutions can be designed for every application. Our trained climbing teams & expert surveyors enable us to access sites (rooftop and mast environments) that are beyond the reach of other Design Consultants. We regularly carry out site audits on behalf of various clients and provide comprehensive feasibility surveys and reports.
Visual Communication Services
We actively provide in house training for all our CAD technicians creating a strong core design team that are able to work on various types of design projects for the multiple sectors we serve. This experience is invaluable when working on telecommunications projects which require a wide range of detailing skills - whether it’s steelwork, concrete detailing, 3D modelling or very complex electrical designs as well as general arrangement and as built drawings.
The correct electrical solution for each site is critical. Operators need site running 24/7, with no unplanned interruptions. Provision of power, battery backup and cooling systems are all necessary to maintain each site without disruption.
Civil & Structural Design
Telecoms operators must have networks that are reliable. The maintenance of the network infrastructure is important both to the client and to the end users.
Our Other Services
Civil & Structural Engineering
Engineering Innovation is at the heart of our approach to structural engineering. Shire were formed during 1988 in the belief that many clients were dissatisfied with the traditional reactive response of some Engineers.Find out more
Shire originally started the geotechnical service to provide our own engineers with information on site, while the structural surveys were being carried out. This allowed us to offer a reactive, rapid response to our clients as a ‘one-stop shop’ for Design, Investigation and Construction.Find out more
As Structural Engineers, we have worked with the Property Insurance sector since 1998. We conduct structural inspections, impact damage analysis, specialist investigations and root cause analysis. All of which is engineer-led using straightforward language. Our experienced engineers are also asked to conduct Expert Reports and Expert Witness Service for homeowners and clients alike.Find out more
Shire offer a specialist building repair service registered under the Safe Contractor Accreditation and the Contractors Health & Safety Assessments schemes.

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.Find out more
