Shire have completed the investigation of subsidence problems for homeowners, Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Loss Adjusters and Insurance Companies. By combining the skills of the surveyors, the geotechnical team and the construction teams we can offer a one stop shop for inspection, investigation and repair. The wide range of repair techniques we have available allows us to specify the most appropriate repair for a given problem, this could be mitigation measures such as tree removal or repairs such as piling, masonry reinforcement, ground injection or a combination of these processes.

We have completed the review of thousands of subsidence claims and this experience has allowed us to provide an expert structural reports service. These reports could be required where the cause of movement of a building is unknown or where there is dispute on either cause of movement or appropriate schemes of repair.

Shire aims to have an active involvement in projects and has grown steadily. Individual commissions up to a value of £20M have been completed.

A reputation for being “Thinking Engineers” has led to a varied workload in the Civil, Structural and Highway Sectors.

Recent awards for building design include 2010 RIBA Architecture Award for the ‘Zero Carbon House’ in Birmingham, the 2013 RIBA West Midlands Award for the Michael Baker Boathouse, King’s School, 2013 RIBA North East Award for Yarm School Auditorium and the 2013 RIBA West Midlands Award for St Georges Primary School.
