About the team

Sands was established in 1991 by Alun Sands with the aim of providing clients with a bespoke Civil and Structural Engineering design service. We work with large and small clients, treating all with equal importance. Based on an honest, hardworking and co-operative ethos the business has continued to grow and develop into a respected and established practice.

 

In 2015 the practice went through a management buyout when long serving

Engineers Matthew Cridge, Martyn Stroud and Dave Backway took full ownership of the company.

 

Sands embrace innovation and celebrate the uniqueness in any project regardless of size. Our application of design excellence gives the client the added value that good design bestows. We understand that the client is central to a project and that understanding their organisation, vision and needs is fundamental to producing a quality service.

Our team bring commitment, enthusiasm and experience across a broad range of sectors to the service of the client.

 

The company embraces the ambition of its staff and harnesses this to the benefit of the client. We believe in the nurture, development and exercise of aptitude and talent. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts and staff are encouraged to connect with, and realise, their potential at all levels.
