Welcome to Fairhurst

We are the largest engineering consultancy Partnership in the UK with 500+ technical staff and have been providing high quality services to our clients for over 120 years. Over time, the business has evolved from a civil and structural design practice to become a modern client-focused multidisciplinary consultancy, which includes specialist geo-environmental, traffic and transportation, rail and planning services.

Fairhurst’s success is built on lasting relationships and repeat business. This allows us to develop in-depth understanding of client needs and tailor our services to provide efficient engineering solutions that add real value.

In a challenging business environment, we maintain our edge through the personal involvement of the Partners and by maintaining a highly skilled and local workforce who can produce cost effective, sustainable and creative design solutions. Responsiveness and flexibility help to form strong connections, which reflect in our service delivery.

As a Partnership, we are different to our competitors. The Partnership strives to align excellence in engineering design with project goals and client aspirations. Each Partner holds complete responsibility for all projects in their care, and personally directs all technical resources.

It is this personal involvement from the owners of the company, which sets Fairhurst apart and is the reason why we maintain our strong client relationships and traditional delivery model.
