Achieving your Architectural Design aims

We work in close collaboration with your architect and other members of the design team to ensure seamless co-ordination between disciplines. This is relevant to any project large or small.

RYALL Structural Engineers regularly works with leading architects specialising in cutting edge contemporary design. Consideration is always given to the aesthetic objectives when designing the structural elements of buildings and conversions.

Preconstruction Ground Investigations

With a good understanding of soil engineering, we can work alongside Geotechnical experts to design the most cost-effective foundation schemes in different soil types.

For smaller projects our hand-held site investigation equipment can be used to carry out basic soil investigations. For larger projects we liaise directly with ground investigation companies – from arranging quotations to analysing test results.

Identifying and resolving structural problems
