An Introduction to Swanton

Swanton Consulting is a specialist engineering company providing unique skills for the refurbishment, alteration and demolition of complex building structures. Our team of experienced engineers, led by Robert Millard, create both practical and cost effective solutions for some of the most complex temporary works schemes within the industry.

We specialise in the design of:

  • Temporary works
  • Deep basements
  • Facade retention schemes
  • Retaining walls
  • Specialist structural elements
  • Contractor delegated design elements

Working closely with clients in both public and private sectors, our experience of commercial, residential, and industrial construction projects, particularly within the confines of city centres, enable us to supply high quality and bespoke solutions for technically demanding problems. We positively encourage early contractor engagement as this allows us to integrate value management techniques, helping us to both improve the viability of projects and reduce costs.
