Welcome to Foulkes Jackson Fewings

Civil and Structural Engineers covering Cornwall, Devon and now Bristol

First established by Dr Michael Foulkes in 1986 the practice was set up to provide engineering services to local architects and builders in Cornwall. The practice has since expanded into its current form and as Foulkes Jackson Fewings it now offers a comprehensive and individual service throughout both the South West region and nationwide that encompasses the many aspects of civil and structural engineering, including Devon and Cornwall, Bristol and other areas of Somerset.

The practice engages in a range of projects in the domestic, agricultural, commercial and public sectors. The range of work encompassed in these sectors is highly diverse. We provide a range of specialist services from boroscopic investigation and geotechnical survey reports, specialist foundation design, superstructure structural design and highways works.

In particular it has also developed substantial experience in smaller scale domestic works which typically involve structural design for extensions, loft conversions, retaining walls, underpinning works and structural surveys for mortgage purposes. For a full list please see our services page.

Whatever the scale or type of work, it is undertaken to the highest standard with an adherence to detail.

The new frame was installed whilst keeping the existing swimming pool in place which gave rise to some interesting considerations during the formation of the foundations. Due to the relatively shallow pitch of the arched frame roof bespoke lateral bar ties were specified to avoid adverse spread. These bars were hidden within the upper tie to retain the traditional aesthetic of the oak frame."
