We operate within the public and private sectors, offering detailed structural & civil engineering design services from project inception through to handover and beyond. Whichever sector we are employed, we take a commercial approach to the engineering design with the ultimate aim of providing cost effective, fully coordinated, sustainable and efficient schemes that can be built to programme, on budget, and on time. We strive to be creative and innovative in our work and collaborate within the team to encourage a similar approach throughout.

Clarity of scope and briefing is one of the most important aspects of achieving successful projects. We encourage an early stakeholder consultation process to ensure our clients’ aspirations, desires, and drivers are fully understood. We will always endeavour to deliver to those expectations as a standard.

Expertise ranges from structural surveys of residential and commercial properties to the production of designs, details and specifications for major new build and refurbishment projects. All design and detailing is undertaken in accordance with current UK and European Design Standards and Codes of Practice. We invest in keeping ourselves fully trained and informed of developments in the industry, including Modern Methods of Construction.

Our Structural & Civil team works in the same office space, which offers us opportunities to pollinate new and innovative ideas that may have been brought in for one specific sector that we can see may bring benefits in another. This close proximity of engineering teams also allows us to be flexible with our resources to suit the demands on projects.

Chess Structural Consultants experience includes, amongst others, projects and developments in residential, commercial, retail, industrial, education, custodial, health, leisure, defence and other governmental buildings both in the UK and internationally.
