Holdgate Consulting Engineers was founded in 1986 by Ian Holdgate. The head office operates from a converted 17th century farmhouse and barn in Bingley, West Yorkshire. With easy access to Leeds and Bradford, a significant proportion of all the work undertaken by our structural engineers is for domestic clients, and small projects are welcome. We also have a team big enough to work on larger projects throughout the UK.

Our Team

We have used Holdgate Consulting Limited for over 15 years. Initially they produced a structural survey when we purchased a house first built in 1787. Needless to say there were several areas that required work before we moved in. Most recently they consulted on the removal of part of a wall in our kitchen/dining room and the steel work required to join the rooms. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Jenny Hannigan, Skipton

Contacted Holdgate Consulting for an orangery design and structural plan along with planning permission for a grade 2* listed building consent. Listened to our ideas and asked some useful questions that helped direct our thinking. Promptly obtained planning permission and listed consent and we were really happy with the results.

Dr Morgan, Bradford

We contacted Holdgate Consulting to help us with the conversion of a barn into a house. They were extremely knowledgeable and helped from the initial survey through to the full structural design and during the build. Their experience helped the build run smoothly and helped reduce the build cost. Would definitely recommend their services.

Mr Hainsworth, Ilkley

Our apartment was suffering from cracks and broken floor tiles, due to the floor sinking. We commissioned a structural survey by Mr Ryan Peel of Holdgate Consulting to find out the reasons for the problem, and to support our insurance claim for a substantial repair. The thoroughness of the report, and Mr. Peel's communication with the insurance company, lead to a successful outcome for us. We recommend Holdgate without reservation.

JK, Bingley

Ryan and Holdgate Consulting are exceptional structural engineers. They understand the need for a client to get things right first time, always providing thoughtful solutions without ‘overkill’. The review of design is decisive and on point. I would recommend them without hesitation.
