Civic Engineers expands business with acquisition of Scottish studio

Civic Engineers

Civil and structural engineering practice, Civic Engineers, has announced further expansion of its business taking on the Glasgow arm of consulting engineers, Structa LLP. The move will see the 11-strong Structa Glasgow team become part of Civic Engineers, taking headcount to 78, and will give the rapidly expanding practice its fourth studio and a permanent Scottish base.

This will enable the business to build on the projects already undertaken in Scotland, develop local engineering talent and further strengthen its market presence across the UK. Projects the Glasgow team will work on include Edenmill Distillery & Brewery in Guardbridge, St Andrews and the Sentinel Building refurbishment in Glasgow city centre.

This expansion follows a successful 12 months for Civic Engineers which saw the opening of a Leeds studio, a significant increase in turnover to £3.4m, being ranked in the New Civil Engineer Top 100 companies, and headcount more than double. Completed projects have included redevelopment of Cohen Quad, Exeter College, Oxford, No 1 Cambridge St, Manchester, and public realm work in Altrincham and London.

Founding director, Julian Broster said: “Establishing a Scottish studio for Civic Engineers will be of huge benefit to the practice and we are delighted to welcome the Glasgow team. They bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge which will further strengthen our portfolio of high profile, award winning civil and structural engineering projects across the UK.

“We have a number of projects in Scotland including the Highland Housing Fair in Inverness, new high-rise riverside residential developments in Glasgow, and are keen to build on this presence. Having a Glasgow studio will enable us to build stronger links with our Scottish clients and collaborators, and develop local engineering talent. It will also help us strengthen our credentials for designing high quality buildings, structures and public spaces, with a view to helping to deliver vibrant and healthy cities. Directors Isla Jackson and Iain McIntrye will be leading our Glasgow studio.”
