Designing buildings to sustain better lives for future generations

A leading UK engineering design consultancy

Mike Silcock and Bill Leedham founded the company in 2001 with clear business objectives. Nine years later, Silcock Leedham became a limited group company owing to its thriving business expansion, which ensured security for its clients and staff. In 2019, we took another major step as a leading UK sustainable engineering consultancy by joining the RSK Group, a foremost integrated environmental, engineering and technical services business providing dynamic, multidisciplinary services to broad-ranging sectors.

Innovation is at the heart of our company culture

Our working culture is based on sustainable long-term building and engineering solutions that fulfil our clients’ business needs. We pride ourselves on maintaining a broad portfolio of diverse projects. Each project we collaborate on is an essential and proactive learning experience. It encourages our engineers to transfer ideas across projects to offer free thinking and non-formulaic design solutions. We extract innovative ideas and good working practices from projects, accruing expertise that is transferred into future endeavours. We are open-minded engineers and designers, not restricted by existing solutions; as such, we can see the potential for a workplace design solution to be adapted for a laboratory, school or college. This broad, innovative thinking adds depth and credence to our engineering advice.
