Peter Dann launched his Cambridge-based consultancy in 1963, and since then we have evolved and expanded, opening our London office in 1997.
Specialising in structural and civil engineering design, we offer a broad range of services within the construction industry, covering all sectors including commercial, education, industrial, hotel and leisure, medical, residential, restoration, civil and retail.
Our project experience includes commercial office space, modular hotels and residential developments including student accommodation, industrial plant/manufacturing facilities, restoration and heritage projects, civil infrastructure, medical facilities and retail schemes.
We are a sustainable design practice who also understand the importance of incorporating the latest technologies into all our projects. We have embraced a collaborative work ethos through our commitment to BIM (Level 2), aiming to improve the design process through collective decisions during the design and building ‘life cycle’.
We operate from offices in Cambridge and London with a collaborative and energetic approach, and are committed to the development of innovative design through investment in our talented team of engineers and technicians.
