The Toureen Group is proud of its in-house specialist design and engineering consultancy. The consultancy’s strength lies in safe, cost effective and innovative design solutions for temporary works and permanent structures.
The team successfully delivers design and build projects, many of which have involved creating large underground space below and around sensitive Grade I and II listed buildings, either publically owned or on behalf of high net-worth individuals. Most recently, Toureen Design services was instrumental in securing a £23m design and build contract to deliver a 750 bedroom hotel in Heathrow Airport. The alternative design proposals provided by the design team saved the client approximately £1.5m and reduced the construction period by some 10 weeks.

Toureen Design strives to produce efficient, accurate and detailed designs using state of the art BIM and 3D modelling software. Significant investment in staff training in the latest engineering software packages keeps them at the cutting edge of geotechnical and structural design. Also, visualising structures in 3D assists with identifying risk, project planning and collaborative working. This allows the team to coordinate designs quickly, react to changes in real time and produce buildable solutions that can be implemented safely.
