The Battle of Britain National Memorial in Capel-le-Ferne is dedicated to Churchill’s famous “Few” who fought in the skies overhead to keep this country free from invasion. ‘The Wing’ Visitor Centre, is an eye-catching design in the shape of a Spitfire wing, complete with dihedral angle to provide educational and visitor facilities.
Installed in 1885, the Leas Lift is a grade II listed funicular railway linking the seafront and promenade in Folkestone, Kent. The lift is a remarkable piece of Victorian engineering; using water and gravity, controlled from a small cabin at the top of the cliff. By alternately filling and emptying tanks fixed beneath the two cars with water, the lift can carry fifteen passengers up and down the cliffs and by recycling the water has a near zero impact on the environment. The Leas Lift is one of only a handful of such water balance lifts left in the world today.

Most of the time when we want to make improvements to our homes an engineers advice is not necessary. There are times however when something more substantial is planned and our team of experts are on hand to offer advice and guidance to support you.
Chafford Hundred Campus
Chafford Hundred Campus; was conceived as an all age learning campus, containing nursery, primary and secondary schools on the same site sharing a central block of facilities, with the primary and secondary teaching wings extending from the central shared facilities.
Working alongside architects Nicholas Hare for the provision of Civil, Structural and MEP Engineering we adopted an inventive low energy design for the engineering services. Our design includes ventilation stacks to the rear of deep plan classrooms providing natural ventilation and exposed thermal mass provides night cooling, helping to maintain comfortable conditions during summer days.
