Based in Bristol*, RISE is a unique company with a novel approach to structural engineering design which has grown continuously since 2010 and we are on course to double in size next year, whilst staying true to our core values.
We are passionate about defying gravity and daring to pioneer new technology. We champion elegant designs and the light use of materials through precision engineering.
We collaborate with architects to keep our design precise to ensure that the aesthetics of the building are not compromised. We believe that good architecture speaks to people and our aim as engineers is to support architects in delivering that message. Whether the structure is permanent or temporary, requiring a tension, compression or cantilever element, our aim is to ensure that our designs ‘RISE to the occasion’. We use a variety of technology and strive to make use of the latest systems, techniques and products. We are accustomed to working with sustainable materials, as well as steel and concrete where necessary.
Our engineers hail from a variety of backgrounds and bring a diverse range of experience with them. We work closely as a team to share our knowledge and ideas. We love building long-term relationships with our clients, and enjoying the positive feedback we receive. Our coffee machine is on standby and we always welcome our clients to our office with a cuppa. (We have chocolate biscuits too..!). Fuelled by coffee, we are a young, alternative family of like-minded people. We are guided by the philosophy, ‘the answer is yes, what is the question?’
We’re hard-working and passionate about building a better world. We all have our favourite buildings which you can see when visiting our offices. We relish our clients’ challenges with our aim being to inspire wonderment through our creative and ambitious can-do attitude.
We share the vision that we are a unique business helping our clients deliver buildings that speak to the world we all live in.
