A Snapshot from a Successful Spring

Posted on Posted in Careers

Spring has sprung and projects have certainly been coming into bloom over the last couple of months at Archibald Shaw.


There has been a cry for culture in Chichester…

We have begun project work on the reconstruction of an important historic Selsey building. Built in the 19th Century, Sessions House was ravaged by fire in 2006. In order to maintain the building’s character, the new 60° pitch roof will be reformed from a Queen Post truss; designed to ensure its form is similar to the original, whilst meeting current design criteria and according with the constraints of the local Conservation Officer.


…The wind has been blowing to the west…

We have begun feasibility studies on a number of significant residential and commercial projects in the West Country. These include multi-storey apartments and several garden centres.


…Larry’s been called to the City…

Larry is directing structural alterations on a 1970s office block in Richmond-upon-Thames, Surrey. These offices are being converted into residential accommodation.


…And it’s been non–stop in our Newbury office.

Floods and fallen trees from the recent winter storms have kept our Newbury team very busy these past months.

Even Downton Abbey did not escape the severe weather. Archibald Shaw provided structural engineering advice to the Highclere Estate, where the popular TV drama series is filmed. Buildings were made safe following damage from fallen trees.

Private property extensions and refurbishments, together with new developments, both commercial and residential promise to keep our Newbury office busy during 2014.


We are looking to recruit experienced civil and structural engineers, and CAD technicians

We are looking for qualified people with excellent communication skills and a sense of humour to join our Newbury and Chichester teams. Please see our careers page for detailed information.
