Expedition has a strong track record for our provision of distinctive engineering services within the education sector. As well as providing full structural/civil engineering design services for schools and colleges, we also offer educational institutions strategic advice of how best to develop energy strategies across their estates.

In developing structural design solutions for school buildings, our engineers will typically work alongside client and architect teams to understand the particular aims and objectives for building projects. In many cases it will be an important priority for new buildings to be deliverable with minimum disruption to existing facilities.

Our work with UCL (London) is a good example of Expedition providing a trusted advisor relationship with a first class educational establishment who is seeks a clear energy strategy for a growing and changing campus.
