About Us

Our Company

Tier Consult is a vibrant Structural, Civil and Geo-environmental consultancy delivering engineering solutions to clients across the UK. With a keen eye for detail, Tier Consult has been able to secure major projects throughout the construction industry and has provided services for student accommodation, residential, commercial, retail, industrial and leisure developments.

Our History

Tier Consult was founded in 2003 by Philip Barlow to deliver civil and structural engineering consultancy services in the North West. From the start Tier’s reputation for driving efficiency into their designs and services was recognised and enabled the company to grow. In 2005 the Company’s service stream grew to include geotechnical engineering and Tier Environmental was incorporated. A strategic move to expand the company across the UK saw the successful opening of offices in Manchester, Sheffield and London between 2008 and 2013, whilst Tier Environmental moved into larger office space in Warrington in 2012. Most recently the company acquired J. Turner & Associates Ltd and opened Tier Midlands in Birmingham.

Our Team

The past 16 years has seen the Tier Consult team grow from a small team in Chester to over 85 members of staff across six offices. Our team includes professionally qualified Structural and Civil engineers, Geo-environmental consultants, senior technicians, graduates and apprentices. We are passionate about investing in and supporting our people at every stage of their career and helping them to achieve their full potential with Tier Consult.
