Building Structures Consultancy

Optimising Design and Function

Crofton bring decades of successful experience and work closely with the design team to provide the most economic, practical, and innovative solutions to any project.  We undertake 3D modelling of the structure using powerful software, to evaluate options and arrive at the most efficient and practical solution, optimising substructure foundations, superstructure and facades.

At an early stage we will evaluate the site, taking account of neighbouring structures, topographical features and taking account of clients needs for flexibility, durability and so on.

Our engineers always consider embodied and operational carbon and seek to reduce this without affecting the practical or economic viability of the scheme.

We offer a comprehensive service with expertise in a wide spectrum of structure types:

  • Retaining Walls
  • Concrete Structures
  • Steel Structures
  • Low Carbon Calcium Silicate Block Structures
  • Modern Methods of Construction for example SIPPS and STREIF
  • Foundations
  • Underpinning
  • Traditional Construction
  • Timber Frame Construction
  • Temporary Works

Our experience ranges across many building types, from private residential, heritage and community to multistorey offices and residential developments.

Our designs are undertaken in Revit BIM (Building Information Modelling) environment to deliver structural solutions which communicate with the rest of the design team enabling close coordination and collaboration.

Our processes are accredited under ISO 19650 and ensure a carefully planned and delivered project meeting your needs, budget and deadlines.

We produce cutting edge designs that consider the optimisation of space for immediate commercial benefit and deliver long-term value in sustainable energy-efficient buildings. Above all, we understand the importance of engaging with the client, all stakeholders, contractors, designers, and end-users to deliver a successful project. Good communication remains central to the way we work.

We ensure that all possible construction methods are explored using powerful design software packages. This allows us to quickly to make assessments on the most carbon neutral and cost- efficient structural solutions.
