Structural Engineering

The David French Partnership deals with the full range of projects from new build structures to refurbishment of listed and historic buildings, ranging in size from large multi-million pound projects to small domestic extensions or conversions. Our client base ranges from Nationwide Companies, Housing Associations, to Schools and Colleges, Commercial and Private Clients.

Experienced and versatile
You will benefit from our experience of designs that use all traditional construction materials as well as newer materials and products such as structural insulated panels (SIPs). We have expertise in the design of structures using steel, concrete, timber and masonry as well as less common materials such as aluminium and glass. This experience allows us to recommend the best materials and design approach for your specific situation.

Traditional skills supported by the latest technology
Sophisticated software enables us to carry out complicated analysis and design of all types of structures. Our CAD technicians are trained to use AutoCAD which is heavily customised to optimise our drawing process. Add-on packages to AutoCAD make our structural detailing highly efficient and include MultiSuite software. The CAD team also have experience of PDS Software so you can take advantage of 3D ground modeling.

No job is too big
Whatever your project you can be confident we have the right people for project. Within the design department are teams who handle the larger projects.

...Or too small
In addition there is a separate small works division which deals with such projects as loft conversions and simple beam calculations for your home extension.
