From the beginning phases of planning through the conclusion of construction, our team of skilled specialists is dedicated to providing top-notch service.
Gadsden Consulting values sustainability. We recognise that the building sector can have a substantial negative impact on the environment, and we work to reduce that impact through our design and management techniques. We support using SUDs practices, consider the materials used in our designs, and designing with energy efficiency in mind. We challenge our clients to consider sustainable practices whenever possible by doing this.
Gadsden Consulting is devoted to minimising our own carbon footprint as a business. We aim to transition to a paperless workplace and eventually to carbon neutrality. We aim to set an example and encourage others to follow suit by trying to lessen our environmental footprint.
Our services are not region-specific; we frequently do projects in Cumbria, The Lake District, Morecambe Bay, Lancashire, Merseyside, and North Wales, among other areas of the North-West.

What People Say?
We have worked with Gadsden Consulting for over 15 years, on a wide variety of projects, from sizing concrete lintels to large warehouse extensions worth millions (and everything in between). In that time, we have found the staff to be approachable, knowledgeable and professional. We like the fact that they listen carefully to our brief, giving considered, balanced advice. We have commissioned Gadsden Consulting to act as the Contract Administrator on our larger projects and would highly recommend them. We look forward to working with them in the future.
We have worked with Gadsden Consulting regularly for over 4 years on numerous developments within Cumbria and Lancashire. They are very approachable, have strong technical ability in their areas of expertise and a good work ethic in trying to meet tight deadlines, whilst maintaining an eye on good design both in terms of commercially and in its delivery
