Shadbolt Group

About Us

The Shadbolt Group, established over 35 years ago, is an award winning, management and technical consultancy to the Built Environment. Based in the North East of England, and working in partnership with both national and international clients, the Group has successfully completed many complex developments, including sophisticated engineering installations.

We believe a robust design team structure is a key element to a successful project, especially with complex and sophisticated engineering installations. On the basis of this principle, the Group is formed from a multi-disciplinary consultancy, providing architectural, civil, structural, geo-environmental, project management and Principal Designer services, all under one roof. This multi-disciplinary approach enables maximum efficiency and design-led innovation during all stages of a project, delivering the optimal solution.

Priding ourselves on our ability and performance, we ensure that either a Director, Associate Director or Associate of the company personally oversees the management and design co-ordination. We work collectively on all projects to provide tailored solutions for the client and end users.

We are members of a number of SSIP’s (Safety Schemes in Procurement) and we are ISO9001 accredited, and therefore the Shadbolt Group has been pre-assessed for competency and quality by a professionally recognised, independent, specialist assessor.

Our design team prides itself with being at the forefront of technology and innovation. Each department has adopted Autodesk’s BIM range of software, with a number of staff trained to Autodesk’s ‘Certified Professional’ status.

Our range of services is defined and controlled by our multi-disciplinary board of Directors who continually monitor, review and develop our capabilities to provide a total service for our clients.
