Design & Survey

Partnering lead design organisations in meeting civil asset design and assurance requirements for construction of works undertaken on civil engineering infrastructure. Services include design checks on steel structures, foundation designs, geotechnical investigations, tower structural and condition surveys, remedial and strengthening designs, plus tower extension designs.


Renowned for the quality of build and design durability, our production facility has the capacity to manufacture over 100 towers and columns per month. All structures are CE compliant with BS EN 1090 to a minimum standard of Execution Class 2. Where required, all our structures can also be provided with the relevant accessory steelwork and cable management products. We are happy to work with our clients to refine our structures to meet exact requirements and employ an ongoing innovation programme to ensure our towers are best in class.

We are experienced in dealing with complex rooftop and tunnel/bridge deployments including installation of feeder management.
