Commercial and Industrial

Holdgate Consulting Engineers can provide a comprehensive survey and report service on all forms of commercial premises, including shop units, office blocks, industrial developments and department stores. Surveys are designed to safeguard and inform prospective purchasers, including ‘fully repairing lease’ buyers.

New Build

We can provide a comprehensive design service, ranging from the design of steel-framed buildings for commercial developments,  through to portal frame design, gantries and supports for industrial processes and machinery. We have experience within many industries, including foundries, glass production, general manufacturing, food production, warehousing and agriculture.  We use the latest 3D design software and can produce drawings in either AutoCAD or REVIT for BIM compliance.

Redevelopment and conversion of existing buildings

We have extensive experience in the conversion of mills, cinemas and other redundant buildings to apartments, offices and retail units.


Our Civil Engineering department specialises in infrastructure works. We have the capacity to design highways, drainage systems, pumping stations, retaining walls, bridges etc. We can produce and submit details for adoption for both highways and drainage with the relevant authorities.

Retail units

Modern marketing practices often place changing demands on the layout of retail outlets. We are able to design structural alterations to accommodate these demands, including a continued trading facility. We have a substantial amount of experience in determining optimum solutions to meet all criteria.

Educational buildings

We deal with the structural engineering aspects of educational institutions, and have been involved with work throughout the education spectrum. Work has ranged from nurseries through to higher education, universities and museums.

Health and medical facilities

We have been involved in the design and construction and extension of several health centres and care homes . These are often on ‘brown field’ sites which require bespoke foundation solutions.

Specific Materials design

We have specialist expertise in all conventional building materials; timber, steel, concrete and masonry, plus non-conventional materials; aluminium, glass,  etc.

Lady Park Care Home

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.
