Global Awards for The Crow's Nest & Apple Kunming

We are delighted that The Crow’s Nest and Apple Kunming have attracted recognition with prestigious global awards – representing the breadth of our work in the UK and overseas, producing diverse engineering solutions tailored to each context.

Brian Eckersley, Founding Director, comments, “It is always great when our collaborations win awards, especially when they come from international audiences. It reiterates that quality design has the reach to transcend borders.”


The Crow’s Nest is a collaboration with AR Design Studio – we engineered a bold, yet pragmatic, solution for a home located at the foot of a cliff prone to severe ground movements. We engineered a system of relevelling adjustment, giving the owner the confidence to invest in quality architecture.
