As a multi-disciplined consultancy, SYSTRA provides a full range of services to support the delivery of new buildings and structures – from expert advice, design and structural engineering to on-site project management and commissioning both within both the UK and international markets.

Buildings and structures engineered to perform

We have a broad range of experience and work closely with our clients to deliver cost effective, sustainable structural design throughout the energy sector, urban environment, and transportation network for all types of building structures.

These depots, stations, offices, industrial buildings, and energy centres must be designed and constructed to meet the needs of their intended purpose and the people who use them, while minimising environmental impacts.

Creating functional, safe and sustainable buildings that also enhance their environment requires expert structural design and engineering, combined with construction expertise – to ensure projects meet cost, programme and quality requirements. Engineering designs need to consider efficiency and sustainability at every stage of a structure’s life-cycle, from initial construction through to lifetime operation.

SYSTRA offers expertise across architecture, structural engineering and construction services to provide an integrated approach to developing essential buildings and structures. We create visually appealing structures, designed with purpose in mind to meet our clients’ commercial, operational and sustainable objectives.

SYSTRA building designers and structural engineers apply innovation and digital technology to help clients deliver a whole range of challenging structures.

Integrated multi-disciplinary design and engineering

Our in-house expertise spans design, structural engineering and construction support for all types of building and structures in the transport, energy, power and environmental sectors.

We have considerable experience of working in collaborative relationships with contractors and sub-contractors, engaging with our client at an early stage to develop buildable designs. Our approach enables us to add value from the outset, bringing cost, resource and programme savings to any construction project.

Buildings designed for efficient construction

Our design, engineering and construction specialists work together in integrated teams, giving clients the full benefit of our combined expertise on every construction project. We design buildings and structures with construction phasing in mind, while integrating the most efficient methods of construction, taking account of site access requirements.

We support the construction of all types of building or structure through a range of services, including:

  • Concept and Scheme design.
  • Tender design support.
  • Detailed design.
  • Contractor site support services.
  • Commissioning and handover support.
  • Design for maintenance.

Innovation in digital design for construction

SYSTRA is a recognised leader in digital design, manufacture and construction for projects of all sizes. We have more than a decade of experience working with BIM (Building Information Modelling), ensuring a coordinated and timely approach to project delivery. We provide compliant BIM processes and workflows to meet current British Standards and individual client protocols.

Our in-house digital information team continuously tests new software, advising project teams on the latest systems to ensure we remain at the forefront of digital innovation, while optimising delivery for our clients.

Safe, sustainable, cost-effective structural solutions

We help to build a whole range of structures, including train stations, rail maintenance depots, bus stations, bridges, road infrastructure, energy-from-waste plants and power generation facilities. On every project, we bring a combination of design skills, structural engineering expertise and technical construction experience to deliver the optimum sustainable, cost-effective, high-performance structural solutions for our clients.

“Just a quick note as I’m unlikely to see you in person to thank you for the huge effort over the last year or so. It’s been a long road full of frustration but we’re pretty much there now. Your professionalism and proactiveness has been much needed and appreciated.”

Mark Howard, Project Director – Gatwick Station Project
