Ross Coughlan - Project Manager - Soho House

SD Structures re-engineered an initial concept design for our new hotel and restaurant ‘Redchurch Townhouse’ and overcame a number of technical issues to produce an efficient structural design under time pressure to help keep the programme on track. They developed solutions to simplify construction and provide additional usable space in the narrow basement. Their creative thinking and exceptional level of service has lead to a close working relationship forming between SD and Soho House for future projects.

Peter Keenan - Development Director - Uplift Property/Keepmoat

I have worked with SD Structures on a number of development projects whilst at Uplift. They have always been extremely proactive and responsive throughout the project. Our projects are often on complex sites but SD’s experience means we can always maximise the potential of each acquisition with intelligent, cost effective solutions. Since joining Engie (Keepmoat) I will be recommending SD for our developments.

Jamie Fobert - Director - Jamie Fobert Architects

We enjoyed working with Mike on the Tate St Ives Project because of his appreciation of good design and attention to detail. Since setting up SD Structures, we asked Mike and his team to help us with a residential warehouse conversion project. The structure was thoughtfully developed; utilising cantilevered steels, hangers and transfers structures, without comprise to the architecture.

Tim O’Callaghan - Director - Nimtim Architects

We have worked with SD structures on a number of projects. Their attention to detail is outstanding and their input has been invaluable on every single project we have completed together. Crucially, SD seek to understand the key architectural concept for the project and how the structure can respond to and fit into this vision. It means that the architectural and structural elements of the design are conceived together and are developed in tandem rather than in opposition to each other.

Their ability to develop the design in three dimensions is a fantastic tool for the architect as the design progresses but also for the contractor on site who is then able to see how the structure fits together in far more detail than with the information produced by most other structural engineers. We would be happy to recommend SD Structures for projects of any size and complexity.

Hugh Broughton - Director - HBA Architects

We really enjoyed working with Mike (Director at SD Structures) on the RIBA award winning project for the Portland Collection, Welbeck. He is a technically innovative and artistically creative engineer who understands the exciting synergies between architecture and structural engineering. He always works collaboratively with us to create the best possible space in imaginative and economic ways.

Kieran Hawkins - Director - Cairn Architects

SD Structures have consistently been excellent collaborators on the series of London projects that we have worked together on. Their use of BIM software to resolve designs in three dimensions has proved invaluable in developing elegantly coordinated design solutions

Claire Smith - Private Client

We wanted to ensure that the drawings our builders were pricing and working from were clear and detailed so there wouldn’t be additional costs further down the line. SD came recommended by a friend and they were very personable, helpful and explained everything to us in a way we could understand…they worked closely with our architect to ensure the build progressed smoothly.

Grant Straghan - Director - DeDraft

Having now worked on numerous projects together with SD, it is their ability to provide innovative and well-considered engineering solutions that set them apart. Importantly they approach every project as a collaboration with a desire to maintain the architectural aesthetic while providing responsive and cost-effective structural solutions.

Peter Lancaric - Director- P.LANSTUDIO Architects

There are many reasons why we engage SD Structures on our projects, but their enthusiasm and passion for well-considered design solutions stands out probably the most. Their thorough approach not only results in elegant and neat architectural detail, but also often offers cost savings thanks to specific structural solutions that are based on an in-depth understanding of each project. Their professional and efficient work ethic turns challenges into exciting solutions. It is a true joy to work with such an engaging and highly competent team.

Oliver Cooke - Director - Cooke Fawcett Architects

SD structures are a pleasure to work with and make a great contribution to the design team. They make the process of coordinating the structural and architectural strategies very simple. Collaborating through Revit granted us invaluable foresight, while their keenness throughout the process to tailor the structural solution to the client’s priorities was of critical benefit in ensuring design quality.

Project : Godwin Road

Jason Richardson - Private Client - Seabreeze Lodge

The work that SD produced in the pre-construction and budget phase was invaluable. The detailed 3D modelling enabled us to look at how much of the building would be saved and the structural requirements in achieving the concept design. As a client we have been very demanding but SD have continued to support the scheme and deliver solutions to all our requests.

SD Structures have been instrumental in helping the team to coordinate the structure, existing facade, mechanical and electrical, and architecture…. on a complicated project comprising commercial space, a cinema basement and residential accommodation this proved instrumental to keeping the project on track.
