What Doesn’t Beat Us Makes Us Stronger

It is fair to say that following UK Government announcing the first COVID-19 lockdown back in March 2020 none of us could have predicted how significant the effects of COVID-19 would be on businesses, the economy, peoples welfare, or the timescales over which it would continue to disrupt our lives. Whilst in August 2021 we are pleased to find ourselves now returning to a more normal way of life once again, clearly COVID-19 is a disease that we are going to have to learn to manage, live and work with.

Like many businesses, back in March 2020 our core management team at Technicus Consulting were staring down the barrel of a completely unknown, world changing, situation, with a potentially ruinous outcome. We didn’t know if we would be able to continue working, whether working from home would be successful, or whether new appointments would continue coming through to us to keep our staff busy and working.

We are pleased to report that due to the strength of our long-standing client relationships, and the commitment and versatility of our professionally qualified engineers, Technicus Consulting’s core team worked tirelessly and safely delivering civil and structural engineering design and consultancy throughout the pandemic. Not a single member of our core team was furloughed, and every one of them was kept busy delivering projects and working a 5-day week throughout this challenging time.

The diversity of our engineers skills and experience to deliver engineering consultancy services for both onshore and offshore projects meant that when the onshore projects slowed down (due to the COVID lock-downs) we were kept busy with new and ongoing offshore projects with our valued long-term clients. For this we are very grateful.

It is a testament to the commitment and quality of the engineering services delivered by our staff that out financial turnover per capita for the period 2020-2021 was up 29% on the previous year. An incredible achievement, and one we are extremely proud of in the face of adversity.

The Directors and staff at Technicus Consulting would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients for their continued support during the last 12 months. It is very much appreciated, and it has been a pleasure working with you on your projects, both big and small. Our team are now looking forward to supporting our clients during the next fiscal year through the continued provision of first class civil and structural engineering design, consultancy, and surveying services.
