As a firm of design and consulting engineers we offer a specialized structural design service. This service specialises in the design and development of architectural facades together with a detailing service in architectural metal work and 3D modelling services relating to steel frame structures.


At SD Design UK we have a dedicated team of experienced engineers and highly qualified technicians who have an extensive background in all aspects of detailing, including architectural precast cladding architectural metalwork and structural steelwork, using both 2D and 3D computer aided design packages such as AutoCAD, TEKLA and Allplan.


We are able to provide independent technical advice for each stage of the facade design and procurement and our facade consultancy services are as follows;


Facade Engineering Consultancy for Architects


We work with architects to support their design objective and ensure the technical feasibility of the design they have in mind. Our structural engineering consultants can then offer independent advice on the performance and design capabilities of materials such as Precast concrete, GRC, GRP and Natural stone.  In addition we aim to co-ordinate with other aspects of the Architectural Façade such as glazing, curtain walling, lighting and mechanical services.


Facade Engineering Consultancy for Precast Manufacturers


We offer a complete design service for Precast Manufactures throughout the UK and Ireland.

We can assist with tender submission, provide a full design package, both a 2D detailing/3D modelling service and project management, from design approval stage through to production and site installation.


Our consultants and Designers are experienced in developing a Façade Design in order  to meet design approval targets, precast factory production programmes and site installation deadlines.


Facade Engineering Consultancy for Architectural Metalwork and Steel Fabricators


We can offer a 3D modelling service using Tekla for Architectural metalwork and main Steel Frames for Steel Fabricators.

Our detailing experience ranges from Structural steel frames through to the Architectural metalwork aspects of a project such as Balustrading, Railings, Balconies and Privacy screens.
