Thomas Consulting


We caught up with Managing Director David Wyatt ahead of the game to ask him a few questions.

Who are Thomas Consulting and what services do you offer?

Thomas Consulting was founded by a group of senior engineers from the Structural Engineering Department of Telford Development Corporation in 1979. The firm’s engineers had been responsible for designing a large part of Telford New Town, including bridges, office, factory, and industrial buildings and large New Town Housing Estates. The company has flourished over the following 35 years, establishing offices in Preston (1984) and Lancaster (1994) and Workington (2014). This year we moved from our original office in Telford to Shrewsbury. We have a reputation for providing quality services in Structural, Civil, Contamination and Geotechnical Engineering.

In 2009 Thomas Consulting set up an associated company Approved Inspectors Ltd (AI Ltd), providing Corporate Building Control Surveyors and Private Building Control services. Initially started in Lancaster AI Ltd now have offices in Chorley, Shrewsbury, Kendal, Workington and East Cheshire. (see )

We have undertaken a considerable range of structural engineering projects from refurbishment and underpinning through to large-scale housing developments and multi-million pound commercial premises. We have been providing services to the Nuclear Power Industry for many years and also offer a comprehensive portfolio of backup and specialist support services. Our civil engineers provide a wide range of services including highway and drainage design, FloorFlood Risk Assessments and transport studies.

Our aim is to provide a “one stop shop” for construction engineering service for our clients, supplying engineering consultancy and design services for the entire scheme from initial site appraisal through to completion of construction. Our role is to solve the many problems clients are faced with when embarking upon a construction project.

Clients that use Thomas Consulting once more often than not become regular clients of our services.

Why are Thomas Consulting keen to sponsor a 1st XV game at Hoppers?

Thomas Consulting believe in helping to support local clubs and good causes. Hoppers have a great community spirit and passion for working with the younger generation, both of which our directors believe deserve support and encouragement. We know that any sponsorship we provide is invested well. As an added bonus there is an excellent day’s entertainment for ourselves and our many guests.

What’s your prediction for the game this Saturday?

A win for Hoppers of course!

We hope that David, his colleagues, clients and guests have a great day on Saturday
