Structural Engineers and Architectural Services

Building Design Team (UK) Limited

Design is of paramount importance to produce a building which is easy on the eye, functional and economical and which sits well in its environment and which people enjoy. Increasingly important is the environmental impact of new developments and sustainable alternative energy systems such as wind power, heat pumps and solar power. We can provide the design of that building for you, without losing sight of the important parameters including choice of materials, maintenance and cost effectiveness. Our knowledge gained working at home and abroad gives us the experience to advise on all types of building projects from military, industrial, commercial, housing and leisure to education, ecclesiastical, barn conversions and refurbishment projects. We carry out designs for all types of buildings, structures in reinforced concrete, structural steelwork, timber and masonry and also carry out site inspections; condition surveys and architectural and structural surveys, evaluation of potential commercial and residential development sites; negotiations with developers and local authorities. BDT is a multi-disciplinary Architectural and Engineering Consultancy providing services to both public and private Clients. This initially focussed on work in the Nuclear Industry as part of a Team supporting an ongoing program of analyzing crane support structures as part of a "High Integrity Program". This program was designed to increase further the reliability of structures supporting cranes and other lifting devices at Nuclear Power Plants. We also maintain an ongoing interest in domestic projects including new housing, house extensions, refurbishments and barn conversions, including listed buildings.

Continuing in the engineering assessment and design appraisal field BDT participated in a program of design and assessment of numerous structures for the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Defence Contractors. This has included Project Management and Supervision of a design and construct project for a Tank Training, Maintenance and Testing Facility. The Project value was US$71 million (£47.5 million) and formed an expansion to an existing armoured training brigade. Other works include structural investigations and appraisals of a variety of structures including hangars, reservoirs, underground storage tanks, towers, antennas, office buildings and housing. During the mid 1990s BDT was engaged by National Grid as Designer and Planning Supervisor responsible for engineering, architectural and general building consultancy for a number of projects. During the late 1990s and early 2000s BDT was engaged by Unigate Dairies Limited as Consultants, Designers and Planning Supervisors to provide structural, civil, architectural, planning supervisor and general building consultancy services on a variety of projects ranging in value from £10,000 to £500,000. Works include new home delivery centres, refurbishment and improvements to existing home delivery centres, extensive refrigeration units and cold stores, pasteurisation and cream separation plant, and general building works. Most recently BDT has provided consultancy and sub-consultancy design services on a wide range of commercial and domestic projects including support frameworks for aggregate storage silos, telecommunications installations, GP Clinics and Surgeries, housing developments and Portal framed structures for commercial and residential Clients.
