Led by Bruce Horsburgh CEng MICE, a Conservation Accredited Engineer, and Mark Turner CEng BEng MICE MIStructE, Adelphi Consulting Engineers employ a team of experienced engineers and technicians who have decades of experience of delivering practical, cost effective Civil & Structural Engineering solutions across a broad range of sectors.


With particular expertise in the Heritage sector, our team have worked on World Heritage Sites, Scheduled Ancient Monuments and all grades of listed buildings. Using the latest 3D analysis, design and drawing packages, we also have a broad portfolio of work in new build and refurbishment of leisure facilities, commercial buildings, industrial sheds, all forms of educational establishments, hotels, exhibition centres and residential schemes.


We can engineer multi-million pound multi-storey schemes in the full range of structural alternatives; and we can survey centuries old masonry and timber structures.

While we work with many architectural practices, we have a sister company, Adelphi Architecture, and can offer a unified architectural and engineering design with the attendant benefits that this approach can bring for a client. Adelphi Architecture is led by Joanna Pullan, a RIBA Accredited Conservation Architect, who also has a broad range of experience in other sectors.
