Civil, Geotechnical & Structural

Award winning design team for structural and geotechnical design solutions

The award-winning Aspin teams are at the cutting edge of design excellence, providing structural and geotechnical design and drawings for all types of projects in the built environment  as well as rail, and highways

Works are in progress for the iconic Battersea Power Station redevelopment

With many years’ experience, the highly skilled teams comprise chartered civil, structural and geotechnical engineers. They provide the extra assurance of ‘safe hands’ when it comes to meeting the challenges of building projects and frequently partner with clients’ in-house teams. 

No design needs are ever the same and Aspin works in close collaboration with clients to deliver full detailed designs or one-off feasibility studies. Delivery of designs incorporates compliance and most importantly addresses the individual needs and constraints of the project including the site, available plant and preferred working methods. It's all designed and planned carefully to meet the project specifications and budget.

The practical experience also covers the ‘know how’ in working with construction teams and securing technical approval from official bodies including Building Control, local authorities, Highways England and Network Rail, with plenty of successful projects to prove it.
Aspin’s design team brings a friendly and professional service that’s sought after by clients demanding the most efficient way to deliver projects from the ground up to completion. It’s a service rarely matched by larger, more generalist consultancies.

The geotechnical design experts

Geotechnical design is part of Aspin’s site investigation and inspection and service, which employs qualified geologists as part of the team. It means that clients can be sure that ground and groundwater conditions are fully assessed before any construction takes place. This guides the selection of the best solutions for above and below ground works including foundations, retaining walls, steel structures, embankments, earthworks as well as bridges and tunnels.

Site surveys, including ongoing monitoring and desk studies are part of the range of services, ensuring a fully comprehensive assessment of your site's conditions - so you have the essential accurate data on which to base budget and time-critical decisions for the optimum solution.

Efficient designs and innovations

Designs are produced using the latest software and techniques, including BIM as part of Aspin’s ongoing investment in research and development.
