abstruct consulting is a UK based practice offering expert structural and civil engineering advice and design services on a large variety of projects.

From inception we have built our reputation on delivering first class service and elegant,  practical engineering solutions.  The merger of Barry Saunders & Partners with ABSTRUCT LLP at the beginning of 2016 has further strengthened our capabilities and range of services offered.

We work and collaborate closely with clients, architects, developers, contractors and fellow professionals from the concept stage of projects through feasibility, planning, design development, detailed engineering design right through to construction and maintenance.

We provide a hands-on and personal approach to all commissions.

Our service to all our clients aims to provide designs that are straightforward, relevant, economical and practical with attention to detail and aesthetics also being an essential part of our approach

The practice is based near Sevenoaks in Kent, UK and we undertake commissions throughout the UK and internationally.
