turn my prose into art:

Devise Engineers are a design-focussed, sustainability-driven structural and civil engineering consultancy based in London.

We’re conscious that we have a unique opportunity in shaping the world around us.  

We take great joy in helping to inform the materials and form of our buildings, aware of the impact will have on the end user.  

For example, how the use of exposed natural materials such as timber can have a positive calming affect on the end-user of the building.  

As well as understanding a the impact our engineering can have on a building’s ‘feel’ and aesthetic, consideration of a building’s energy requirements - including that embodied within the materials used to build it - also plays high on our agenda.

Where it is possible to re-use the existing building fabric, we will encourage it. And if it’s not? We will look to re-use the construction materials by repurposing them elsewhere.  

When we do need to build new, we give careful thought to the construction typology; considering its embodied energy in equal standing to structural performance, constructability and aesthetics.  

We also recognise manufacturing buildings off-site in modern purpose-built factories will improve quality, reduce air leakage and operational energy; and will get it built in a fraction of the time - by fewer operatives on site.

All of our projects are run by a Director overseeing the structural and civil engineering design input. Graham Starling has over 15 years’ structural and civil engineering experience and a passion for realising sustainable design and good quality architecture.  He has overseen the engineering design of three Crematoria from inception to completion including the glulam-framed, RIBA South Award-winning Bierton Crematorium and the Structural Timber Award and Wood Award-finalist, Guildford Crematorium with geometrically complex timber roof.

Graham also oversaw the structural engineering design of Civic Trust Award-winning Lea Fields Crematorium and was instrumental in pursuing a foundation scheme that the yielded the Client significant savings in the ground and resulted in no spoil being removed from the site.

Graham is keen to challenge the status quo in order to improve the end-result for the Client.  This often involves positively challenging the initial brief - as well and other members of the design team - to help maximise value for the Client and to enable them to realise their sustainability aspirations
