About us

About us…

Structural Design Partnership was formed in 1974 to offer a comprehensive structural and civil engineering consultancy to Architects, Developers and Local Authorities.

The practice was incorporated in 1991, and the trading name abbreviated in 1998. The Company is now well established with a wide range of clients and extensive in-house expertise in all aspects of structural and civil engineering design.

All projects are controlled and administered by a director who provides active support to the project and a valuable link between the client and the design team. Work is allocated within the Company to senior engineers and technicians who control schemes on a day by day basis. CAD draughtsmen are used as further support to design teams where necessary.

Our surveying department ( SDP Surveys ), also established in 1974, is also based at our head office in St Albans.

In 1999 a southern office was opened in Christchurch, to service clients in the southern region.
