Engineering & Design Consultancy

We have a collaborative culture of creative project solutions with a commercial focus. Complexity in the project environment is what we deal with every day in over 30 countries around the world. To this end we at AFEC aim to foster an ethos of teamwork and interaction between disciplines in order to provide the most efficient and, therefore, best valued service to our clients.

Design led solutions

We have been designing buildings and environments since 1982 providing design-led solutions that are innovative functional, commercial and highly specific to clients’ needs and the overall quality of the built environment.

Our experienced architects, landscape designers, master planners and urban regeneration specialists work creatively with our engineers across all disciplines including mechanical and electrical civil structural, fire and access giving our client a fully integrated and cohesive service offering.

These disciplines can be called on individually or as a whole which gives our client full flexibility when engaging our services. We complement our wide range of construction consultancy services by providing holistic design solutions that reflect an understanding of the full project life cycle.

We take a comprehensive approach to design, working from inception to completion to turn vision into reality. Our specialities range from architecture, interior design and space planning/rationalization to master planning, 3D visualization and LEED / BREEAM assessments


Over 70% of our projects come from repeat business.  Our culture is centred on the energy and proven ability of our employees to get the job done, coupled with a flexible approach that clients find important.

We do this by highly-skilled planning and the employment of well-proven project management systems and processes throughout the project life cycle.  We are always conscious of our client requirements, particularly on issues of safety, schedule, cost, regulatory compliance and technical quality.

What sets us apart is design excellence coupled with the ability to engage with our clients in a spirit of partnership and collaboration.

Architecture, master planning and interior design form our core service offering.  Tailored to client needs, services can be provided as part of an integrated multidisciplinary offering, or as a standalone service.  Together with our Architectural Partners we offer practical solutions that not only follow form, but also follow function to your exact specification.

From new builds to renewal and regeneration projects, we have the expertise and experience of working with both private and public sector clients including multi-national and individual companies, hospital and healthcare operators, universities and schools, government departments, developers and contractors.

Designs include environmentally conscious, sustainable solutions to industry standards and applicable to client requirements.  Our objective is to provide you with an added value, professional and proactive service. We work hard to satisfy each client and believe our success is recognised by the high proportion of work from repeat clients.
