About Us

SFK Consulting is a practice of structural and civil engineers
We specialise in the repair and conservation of historic buildings, and the design of new structures in historic settings.

We are passionate about our work and are privileged to have played a part in sustaining many significant historic estates around the UK.

All of our projects are personally led by a Partner and demand a careful and considered approach. We collaborate with other specialists and designers so that we can reach a thorough understanding of the constraints imposed on a project whether historical, technical or physical.

We supplement our experience with specific research ensuring our solutions are effective and reliable. In this way, our knowledge and skills are continuously refreshed so that we bring, with confidence, creative solutions to the most complex of problems.
