“I would recommend BDI Structural Solutions. We’ve worked with BDI for over 7 years on a range of large-scale, historical and complicated projects. We can talk issues through with BDI’s Engineers and they help us understand the structural issues and work out the best approach to achieve our objectives. BDI’s structural surveys, structural design, planning support and temporary works designs have been to a high standard. Importantly, the BDI team have always been able to balance practicalities and desired outcomes, which is particularly important when we’re dealing with sensitive and complex issues associated with heritage buildings.”

He conducted a thorough inspection, prepared his report and arranged for the wall to be supported until the rebuilding could commence.

Technical & Practical Expertise
Pro-active & Timely Service
We believe in the service we provide and continuously strive to deliver quality. From instruction, each project is assigned a Project Engineer who is responsible for the delivery of the project and proactively provides updates throughout. Rigorous in-house checking procedures ensure each calculation, drawing and report is materially checked by a second engineer before undergoing a high-level design review by another senior engineer prior to being issued.
Clients come back to us because we are good at what we do.
