Excellence in Engineering

Design

Crofton’s Structural and Civil teams have a wealth of both technical design experience and practical construction know-how. Our senior staff have many years’ experience in the construction industry both with large local authorities, major international consultants and contractors.

From conventional low rise housing construction through to substantial wide span portal structures and multi storey framed structures, Crofton has the ability to design and detail any building. Our work is usually completed in conventional steel/reinforced concrete/timber, but we are also able to design in aluminium, composites and structural glass.

Our experience in this area includes:

  • Below-ground drainage systems
  • Bridges
  • Building information modelling (BIM)
  • Building structures
  • Foundations
  • Hydropower
  • Road & pavement
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS)

Case Study

Crofton was appointed as structural engineering consultants as part of the transformation of a four storey 1930’s office block (formerly the West London Guinness Brewery) site into a state-of-the-art medical research facility. Areas of work included the installation of a new bed lift within the building, the formation of major riser holes through floor and roof slabs to accommodate the extensive ventilation ductwork and other building services together with the provision of new below-ground drainage systems.

Additionally, structural investigations of the external facades were undertaken to identify the cause of cracking and deterioration of the facing brickwork and concrete features surrounding the windows. This resulted in the proposal for all elevations to be over-clad with an insulated render system.
