What AWA do

AWA Engineers are structural engineers with experience in all types of new build properties including residential and commercial property developments.

If you are building a whole development or a one-off bespoke new home, our structural engineers and technicians can work with your design team to achieve your project goals. With experience working on all types of structures from high-rise blocks to impressive, Grand Design inspired homes, you can be confident your project is in safe hands with AWA Engineers.

When you engage our award-winning team to provide structural engineer services for your new build, you will be asked for the architect’s drawings detailing the proposed structure. Your structural engineer will then carry out the necessary calculations in order to specify the most efficient solution.

The recommendations provided by the structural engineer will depend on the proposed materials for the structure. In some cases we may suggest design changes which we believe are necessary to improve safety, which could enhance the aesthetic of the building, or both.

For bespoke, one-off new build properties our team draws on their extensive experience gained from our portfolio of award-winning projects to achieve awe inspiring design goals If you, or your architect, has a vision for something extraordinary our job is to help bring that vision to life – safely.

What is New Build Structural Engineering?

If you’re planning a new build property development of any kind you will need to engage the services of a structural engineer to ensure that the design, and construction, of the building(s) is structurally sound and safe for use.
