Price & Myers was established in 1978 in London as a firm of consulting structural engineers, with the aim of working with good imaginative architects, to make excellent buildings. In our first 30 years we have completed over 18,000 jobs, and won over 250 awards; we now also have offices in Nottingham and Oxford, and currently employ about 130 people.
Our work covers an unusually wide range, both in size and type. Projects vary from minor alterations and extensions, to major new buildings and refurbishment projects, using the most recent developments in materials and construction techniques. We have advised on the repair and restoration of many historic buildings, and we have worked with some of the country's leading architects on the design of many outstanding modern buildings. Our diverse project portfolio allows us to find the right solution for every job.
The majority of our work at Price & Myers is the design of building structures. Our aim is to create simple and elegant structural engineering, minimising the complexities that can compromise aesthetics and function, slow construction, and escalate costs.
Price & Myers Geometrics applies elements of form, structure, materials and manufacture to interpret unusual ideas and make them a reality. These projects often seem complex, but are built on tried and tested principles of geometry and engineering. We are involved from the initial modelling to the final fabrication.
Price & Myers Sustainability offers technical support to clients & designers to improve the environmental performance of their buildings. Our designs have to respond to the local environmental conditions of a site, like Scheduled Ancient Monuments, or Sites of Special Scientific Interest. But we also consider the broader environmental impact of our buildings, wherever the site. Whether it's the use of recycled materials, exploiting the thermal mass of the structure as part of a passive cooling strategy, or aiming for BREEAM certification, we look to design for sustainability wherever we can.
Price & Myers Infrastructure offer our clients underground drainage design, detailed ground modelling, road pavement design and flood risk assessments. The team collaborate closely with structural engineering colleagues from initial concepts to co-ordinated detailed design. Heavy emphasis is placed on sustainability in our civil engineering work.
