TALL consulting structural engineers provide specialist structural engineering services on technically challenging and architecturally prominent projects.
TALL was established in early 2005 by director, Toby Maclean. In the few years since then TALL has come to be recognised amongst the engineering and architectural fraternity as an innovative practice providing elegant design solutions. TALL pride themselves on providing practical yet sophisticated solutions to diverse projects in construction, architecture and art, particularly on technically challenging, prominent or socially valuable projects. We view close collaboration between the design disciplines as essential to the design process and are enthusiastic supporters of cross-fertilisation between all design fields. Such a philosophy has quickly proved successful and projects by TALL that demonstrate this thinking have recently won major architectural and structural awards including a 2008 Institution of Structural Engineers award.
TALL’s approach leads to naturally sustainable solutions involving efficient use of materials and we have a history of making use of local and unusual materials and craftsmanship where possible.
Our experience is broad and varied ranging from the engineering design of bespoke furniture to oil platforms in the North Sea. The approach to design is always from first principles, which ensures our skills can be adapted to all fields without limitation by precedent.
