About Us

During our 50 years in practice we have been involved with civil and structural engineering projects throughout the UK and the Caribbean.

Archibald Shaw was founded in 1960 when Cambridge graduate and the company’s namesake, Archibald Shaw began his own practice. Under the watchful eye of Archibald, or Archie as he was affectionately known, the company grew and so did the Archibald Shaw team.

We pride ourselves on the expert skills of our experienced team, the majority of whom are long-standing members of staff. Many possess particular areas of expertise within the fields of civil engineering and structural engineering. Several of the Partners also offer expert witness advice.

Our practice is a member of the Association of Consulting Engineers (ACE) – the UK’s leading representative body for the consultancy and engineering industry; members of the ACE are renowned for the high quality and excellence of their work and at Archibald Shaw be see it as our responsibility to complete every project to the highest quality.

As a privately financed practice owned by the directors, we are free to give completely independent advice to our clients. Appointments are normally based upon the ACE Conditions of Engagement and a system of quality assurance with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001 is operated, confirmed by an external audit once a year.
