Public Sector

Our engineers have worked with and fostered long term working relationships with various local and nationwide clients within the public sector, both locally and nationwide. We have undertaken a variety of projects within education, healthcare, leisure and housing. We support our clients in managing complex portfolios of existing buildings and delivering maintenance works, new build, monitoring/investigations, assessments, alterations and extensions in a live environment.

We understand the key issues and challenges facing the delivery of these facilities and work as a proactive member of the design team to create solutions for a cost effective outcome, while minimising disruption to the public services being delivered on site.

PUBLIC SECTOR SERVICES FOR:

  • Education

  • Healthcare

  • Leisure

  • Housing

Healthcare

As part of a multi-disciplinary team we work with the designers and stakeholders to undertake various works within the healthcare sector.  Our engineers can undertake structural assessments for the installation of new hospital equipment, designs for the extensions and alteration of clinics to improve facilities and new build elements to larger hospitals.

We appreciate the special demands of working in the healthcare sector and work with the client to phase works and minimise disruption for staff and service users.

Education

Thomas Consulting has extensive experience of developing schools, higher education buildings and research facilities, throughout the UK. We understand the need to maintain day to day operations for public buildings and liaise closely with the client to ensure disruption is minimised. When necessary, projects are developed in a phased manner to help control the impact of site construction on staff and students.

We work closely with the other design team professionals and provide technical services covering drainage, highways, structural and geotechnical design. We also undertake detailed assessments of existing infrastructure and building assets to determine the most appropriate way of developing schools and higher education infrastructure throughout the UK.

Housing Authorities

We work collaboratively with several housing associations to identify any structural repairs required to the housing stock including non-traditional and defective housing types.  We undertake structural inspections to determine the likely cause of damage and specify remedial works such as underpinning, lintel replacement, masonry crack repair and repairs to damaged or defective roofs. 

We understand the need to minimise disruption to the tenants and where practicable remedial works are designed so that they can be undertaken without transferring the tenants to alternative accommodation.

The new office space has access directly off of China Street giving on-site parking for the Team and visiting clients; a rarity in Lancaster city centre.
