Our Philosophy


Richard Gowan Consulting Limited has the principal aim of offering high quality structural engineering designs which make sound engineering sense here in Cornwall. This aim is applied in everything we do, from the smallest building alteration up to the more major new build and refurbishment projects. Of highest importance to the practice is the human impact of the designs we carry out and the certainty with which they can be built on programme and on budget.

Richard Gowan began the structural engineering practice in Cornwall in 2011, with a firm belief that by working closely with the Client and Design Team it is possible to design and detail imaginative structural solutions and produce first class buildings. This belief applies whatever the structural form or building materials used and always has buildability at the forefront on every project.
