Established in 1976, Cundall’s fundamental vision remains unchanged - to provide professional and high-quality solutions to satisfy each client’s unique needs.

The founders - Michael Burch, Rick Carr, Geoffrey Cundall, David Gandy and Bernard Johnston - shared a common vision for Cundall: that it would become a leader in multi-disciplinary engineering which sets new industry standards for holistic design.


Starting in Newcastle and Edinburgh, the partner’s fresh approach achieved rapid success and responding to client requests Rick Carr and Laurie Clark soon started a London office. Early clients included North British Properties plc and Equity and Law Life Assurance Society. We still work with the successors to these organisations today - a testament to the fact that our reputation has been built on the foundations of client service.


Since 2003 Cundall has evolved from a UK-based multi-disciplinary practice of consulting engineers with three offices to a worldwide organisation with 20 offices in 12 countries offering world-leading sustainability advice. This has been achieved through a strategy of organic growth; visionary both in terms of staff empowerment and business development. For further information regarding our international presence please visit our locations. Cundall remains entirely owned by the current Partners.


We celebrated our 40th birthday in 2016 and looking ahead we aim to build on our past achievements, consolidate our current successes and continue to provide value for the long term.
