Structural Engineering

Thomas Consulting offer a wide range of structural engineering technical services. Including designs for timber frame, steel, concrete, masonry and composite materials.

Our service allows us a unique perspective and approach to structural design. We have experts across Structural, Geotechnical, Civil and Hydraulic disciplines and offer these services internally or as part of our trusted 3rd party supply chain. This combined approach allows us, as a team, to provide a complete solution to our valued clients.

We follow the best industry engineering management, CAD, BIM and computer modelling practices. Project delivery success is enhanced by using advanced 3D drafting and modelling software and is integral with everything we do. We consider every site’s individual constraints as opportunities and through technology and all our experience, we help our clients get maximum value for their investment.

By combining the latest technology, best practice construction techniques and innovative ideas we provide unique solutions to complex projects. Program requirements, material quantities, safety, value engineering, site constraints and client aspirations are all taken into consideration through the design process.

2021 - New Year, New Office

Here at Thomas Consulting we are on the move….

Exciting times after nearly 20 years in the current office at Friar Street the team are moving to a brighter, bigger accessible office at 21 China Street, Lancaster.  

The building has been part of a development undertaken by JMP Architects at their existing site.

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.

As soon as COVID-19 Security and Government restrictions permit, we are looking forward to inviting all our associates and clients to enjoy a little cheese and Wine event at our new home.

We will be raising a toast to a healthy, safe and prosperous year for all.
