About us

Our Story

RSP Consulting Engineers LLP was established in 1987 as a private independent partnership providing building services designs to the construction industry and has developed into one of the foremost design engineering consultancies with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and London.

The practice grew organically during the 1990’s establishing its reputation for good quality and reliable design solutions and by the late 1990’s the practice had grown to circa 25 staff with a large proportion of the staff having been retained since 1987.

To meet growth rates and project demands, we opened an office in Glasgow to service the projects won in the West of Scotland and have grown further with offices in London & Aberdeen.

The company has grown organically with staff levels now sitting at 60+, which we believe makes us one of the largest privately owned Consulting Engineers in Scotland.

Our Strengths

RSP are a proactive design practice that endeavours to provide a design solution that is both economical and environmentally sustainable.

The practice believes in retaining our existing knowledgeable and long serving staff some of whom have been with us for over 35 years. This provides synergy between clients and the design engineers. We have built long standing relationships with our clients that have developed through the understanding of their needs and aspirations.

Our Resources

All our offices are equipped with the latest software and equipment to provide the outputs our clients require.

We use the latest dynamic modelling software to carry out simple heat gains and losses to full analysis of buildings and energy usage as well as industry standard software for mechanical and electrical calculations and specifications.

Our People

Our practice is one of the largest in Scotland and we can rely on an experienced pool of staff to resource any size of project.

We believe in an open door policy and encourage the staff to engage in the continual improvement of the companies values whilst also maintaining an environment that encourages the staff to grow within the practice. This can be demonstrated with the high retention of staff and the promotion from within the practice, with many of the management team being with the company from apprenticeship.

All staff within the practice, including the partners and senior management, believe in maintaining a close personal involvement in all projects to ensure a reliable, high quality and consistent service and we believe that this works as 70-75% of our projects come from repeat business.
