Structural Engineering

WDR & RT Taggart Structural Engineering is a dedicated department within our multi-disciplinary consultancy.

Considerable experience has been gained in many types of building structures both large and small, and in many sectors, since the department’s formation more than 40 years ago. We have provided structural engineering design not only for new build, but also for extensions and significant building refurbishment projects.

Our aim is to provide well-engineered practical designs and construction details, for both the superstructure and the foundations of our Clients’ developments, having due regard for all the relevant conditions, and we employ powerful software to assist us with this.

Our Client list includes a broad range of public sector Clients such as Local Councils, Education Boards, Health Trusts, NI Water, NI Housing Executive, Sport NI, and Queens University Belfast, and many private sector Clients in the residential, retail, offices, hotels, commercial and industrial sectors. We have considerable experience of Design & Build projects where we have worked either as structural designers for the contractor, or within the Employer’s team overseeing the D&B Contractor’s proposals.

Our Services include:

  • Conservation
  • Town Planning
  • Structural option appraisals
  • Structural design in steel, reinforced concrete, masonry and timber
  • Structural condition surveys and monitoring
  • Specialist structural investigations
  • Procurement of Geotechnical Investigations on behalf of our Clients
