Our highly skilled and experienced Chartered Engineers offer the highest quality technical solutions and a friendly and professional service.
Ensuring the strength & stability of buildings. Transforming an Architectural vision into a buildable structure.
Our highly skilled team of Structural Engineers have the knowledge and experience to design all types of structures.
From simple beam calculations to complex structural analysis, our structural team are here to support you and your project by delivering safe, efficient and cost effective designs. Our Engineers have an in-depth knowledge of codes of practice and building regulations and regularly design in a range of structural materials including steelwork, reinforced concrete, timber, masonry and structural glass.
From domestic extensions to complex multi-storey buildings incorporating basements and retaining structures, our team of engineers will liaise with the design team to ensure designs are coordinated and will support the construction team through the build process.
Ensuring that everything runs smoothly with your drainage connections and highway works.
Our experienced Civil Engineers have the technical skills and knowledge to design the drainage, highways and external works elements for your project.
Our Drainage Engineers will design your underground foul and surface water drainage networks, pumping stations, package treatment plants and will liaise with sewerage undertakers, local authorities and approval bodies to ensure that the relevant consents and adoption agreements are in place and that planning conditions are discharged in a timely manner.
From outline drainage strategies through to 3D modelling and detailed construction information, our infrastructure team will support your project to ensure everything runs smoothly and will deliver effective & efficient designs.
Creating and managing project information in a collaborative way to aid coordination throughout the design and construction process.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is transforming the way in which the built environment is designed and managed throughout each project life cycle. JPS use a range of 3D modelling software packages to create and coordinate our design deliverables. Our Engineers and BIM technicians use Revit, PDS and Civils 3D as our default drawing software, allowing us to build digital models and prototypes that allow any aspect of a design’s performance to be simulated and assessed before it is built.
Ensuring that designs can be built in a safe and efficient manner, ensuring the safety of the workforce and the integrity of the structure whilst building works are undertaken.
JPS can offer temporary works designs to contractors including temporary propping arrangements, temporary bases to cabins and hoardings and advice on temporary groundworks supports.
This technical knowledge of temporary works allows JPS to deliver highly efficient structural solutions that take account of site logistics, buildability and temporary works constraints.
Securing the technical approvals your project requires from Local Authority Building Control
Our Engineers are well known to the Local Authority Building Control teams and provide detailed and well presented Building Regulations calculations and drawings that will ensure that your project gains Building Control approval in a timely manner.
JPS is held in high regard by the Local Authorities across North Wales and the North West as a team of engineers who present clear and concise design information across a wide range of project sizes and complexities.
