Innovative, pragmatic and elegant structural solutions
Since 2000, John Britton Consulting has been providing innovative, practical and cost-effective structural engineering solutions for commercial, residential, public and conservation projects. The practice philosophy is that the structure should enhance rather than limit the building. This requires a full understanding of how the structure and its component materials work.
Our Engineers receive constant in-house mentoring and external CPD, combined with early engagement with the Client, Architect and other designers to better understand how to achieve the optimum structural solutions for each individual project.
Efficient, cost-effective solutions
John Britton Consulting has extensive experience in a wide range of medium- and large-scale commercial projects. We provide efficient and cost-effective solutions, often under tight programme constraints, without compromising design.
Recent projects include a large multi-storey student residence building, an extensive leisure complex in Scotland, a commercial Coach Station, hotels, retail centres, private healthcare facilities, a 35m tall industrial process building and windfarm infrastructure buildings.
Structural solutions for high-end architecture for bespoke housing
John Britton Consulting delivers creative solutions for architecturally designed and innovative homes, mindful of cost for the end client. Fundamental to achieving this is early engagement with the Client and the Architect to build up a full understanding of their priorities.

Projects include hospitals and care centres, primary and secondary schools, nursing homes and libraries.
"...as much as necessary, as little as possible..."
John Britton Consulting has a strong interest in conservation and heritage projects. The practice philosophy is to pay respect to the workmanship of the past and preserve these important structures for the future, with as little intervention as possible. This involves pragmatic engineering solutions, staying true to the original materials. Projects range from Medieval to Victorian and even early 20th Century Buildings
