Further to joining Halcrow Yolles in 2007 for a four-year period and later forming his own freelance structural engineering consultancy, Alchemy Consultants & Engineers in 2011, David has further developed his reputation in the industry through good working relationships and mutual trust.  This has led to repeat business with a number of clients and recommendations to new clients.

He founded his consultancy Techniker in 1993 to bring inspiration to non-standard design problems. His particular area of interest is in developing the interface between structural design and architecture.


Matthew has delivered a wide range of award winning new-build and refurbishment structures including arts centres, housing, schools and offices as well as a number of public realm and infrastructure projects. Key projects include Stadthaus, the tallest timber residential structure in the world; Sandal Magma School, one of the most carbon efficient primary schools in the UK; the Royal Victoria Dock Footbridge, a fully prefabricated transporter bridge assembled on site without bolting or welding and the innovative Miles Stair at Somerset House pioneering the first use of fibre reinforced concrete in cantilever treads.
