WE ARE ENGINEERS
Whitby Wood is an engineering consultancy.
We are independent, international and forward-thinking. And we love a challenge.
We work on the structural and civil engineering design of buildings and urban infrastructure, providing professional services for clients working in all sectors. We support sustainable construction, and we work hard to develop practical cost-effective design solutions, for projects large and small.
Working closely with like-minded colleagues in diverse engineering fields, we make sure we can see the whole technical challenge a project presents. Our work is based on in-depth knowledge of best practice — locally, nationally and internationally — and an openness to innovation. Key ingredients in our approach are regular re-evaluation of processes, willingness to embrace and develop new technologies and materials, a strong sense of societal and environmental responsibility, and confidence in the abilities of our team members.
