Who are The Best Structural Engineers in Edinburgh

Our top pick of 5 Structural Engineers in Edinburgh & further afield.

We at John Webster Architecture work with Structural Engineers on most projects that we are involved with. Structural Engineers are required to design & detail the structural aspects of a project, certifying designs for building warrant.  Most Scottish local authorities require an SER Certificate to accompany the structural design and building warrant application which means that the firm of Structural Engineers that you use will need to be an Approved Certifier of Design accredited with Structural Engineers Registration Ltd (SER).

Although we are not tied to any Structural Engineers here are the top picks that we use on a regular basis. ***Also, please note we are not recommending these companies per se, but rather making you aware that we have worked with them and that they are SER registered.


  1. Structural Design Consultants (SDC Ltd): A Firm that we use a lot. Offices in Fife, Edinburgh & the Borders, they will provide structural design from knocking down a wall to building a house.
