Our story

We are an award-winning consultancy to the construction industry.

Our Managing Director, Howard Pratt, formed HSP Consulting in 1987. Howard had a vision in terms of the delivery of structural and civil engineering services that encompassed sound engineering solutions based on a proactive approach with extensive value engineering.

To this end HSP Consulting developed a number of techniques both in assessing ground conditions and developing a team that could cover the majority of design work associated with the development of a site. This included setting up a specialist civils team to assess complex drainage solutions, cut and fill analysis, highways design and detailing and a combination of these aspects to provide the optimum levels for sites where significant volumes of cut and fill were necessary.

During the 1990’s geotechnical and environmental issues became more dominant. HSP grew and developed during this time, ensuring sound geotechnical and environmental reports combined with the civil and structural divisions of the company, which produced excellent value engineering solutions to many schemes throughout the UK.

As the highways throughout the UK become increasingly more congested, the effect on proposed developments became increasingly demanding. To grow and help combat this, we developed a traffic and transportation division which enhanced the overall capabilities of our company.

HSP Consulting has therefore developed into a multi-disciplinary, one-stop shop which can cater for all Geotechnical, Environmental, Civil, Highways and Structural requirements for site development.

Our aim is to provide the best solutions for our client’s individual schemes and ensure that these solutions are delivered on time and make good economic sense to contractors. Our commitment to quality and value engineering will always be a priority and we will always strive to introduce this on each and every scheme we work on.
