The practice has significant experience both in terms of management and implementation of research programs. These encompass both materials and structural behaviour. Original research requires the ability to analsyse problems from first principles, develop scenarios that explain observed behaviour and developing fair tests to determine their validity. Often new skills have to be acquired as part of the process.
We are well placed to tackle those difficult problems that are not always codified or have solutions derived from established custom and practice. We welcome the challenge.
