Civil & Structural Engineering

"WE ENCOURAGE A CULTURE OF TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE, ENABLING OUR ENGINEERS TO ARTICULATE SOUND AND THOROUGH ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES." Michelle McDowell, chair of civil and structural engineering

Information

Our civil and structural engineering teams are proactive in anticipating and solving challenges. We look to apply technology to refine design, increase efficiency and improve buildability.

As an established practice with over 50 years knowledge and experience in the industry we are outstanding communicators and our approach is integrated and collaborative working closely with the client, design and construction team. This and our creativity is what make us special.

What gives us an edge is our unique experience in contributing right from the start of projects, before the architects’ ideas begin to form.

Michelle McDowell chair of civil and structural engineering

Our inventive structural solutions include:

  • stripping and refitting shipping containers to create Croydon’s first pop up mall – Boxpark is a retail revolution!
  • the greenest building in the UK at Norwich Research Park's Enterprise Centre
  • uncompromising adaption of the 1970’s concrete structure at the National Army Museum in Kensington to create a stunning new museum for over 400,000 visitors every year
  • parametric modelling for the roof design of three retail centres across China at Wuxi, Beijing, Wuhan
  • using prefabrication and careful sequencing to keep the dining, library and bedroom facilities open during the radical refurbishment at the Garrick Club
  • creating an extraordinary, column free glass reception box – one of only three comparable in the world – for JP Morgan Chase at 60 Victoria Embankment

We are also an industry leader in the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). This technology enables us to offer clients earlier visualisations, more accurate material quantities, better supply chain management and faster build schedules.

John is one of our civil & structural engineering directors in London studio. In this short video he tells us about his career in BDP.

Our aspiration is to design inspiring buildings in which our engineering ideas help shape design rather than simply facilitate the delivery of an architect-led solution. We aim to design structures and infrastructure with minimum impact on the planet and maximum value for our clients.
