The idea of setting up Allan Corfield Structures (ACS) was agreed upon by the board of Allan Corfield Architects (ACA), in November 2020, in a move to provide a one-stop-shop for ACA’s core customers – custom & self-builders. The idea has now grown into a Limited Company (SC683864) ready to recruit top Structural Engineers.

In early February the recruitment process started for our first employee, a Senior Structural Engineer who will be ready to take on ACS first fee-earning projects in April.

Our first hire will help finalise our services and internal procedures. They will oversee the day-to-day project running in a fast-paced environment, where quality will never be compromised.


Initially ACS will provide Structural services for ACA current (and future) residential portfolio, as well as provide outsourced services for some of our key partners. 

ACS will become market leaders in the design of Modern Method of Construction buildings (MMC), including closed panel timber frames, SIPS and ICF buildings. Using state of the art BIM design and analysis software, seamlessly integrating with our in-house architecture team.

Within 12 months we expect to be offering a full range of Structural Engineering services to other Architects and prospective clients.
