About Us

Carley-Daines-LogoThis well established Structural Engineering partnership finds its roots dating back to 1982, over 30 years ago.

Based in Manchester, this firm has many established clients, strands of income and benefits from a lot of referral work.

The business currently employs 4 permanent staff in addition to contracting well established professional structural engineers. The work involves handling the many aspects of structural, civil and commercial work, all requiring professional expertise and civil engineering advice, drawings, specs, etc to its many clients.

Our dedicated staff are well versed in producing structural calculations and CAD drawings to the highest specification.

Carley Daines has been responsible for the structural design of many major buildings in structural steel, reinforced concrete, load-bearing masonry and structural timber. We have inspected in excess of 10,000 individual buildings.

We are frequently asked to provide expert evidence in litigation matters and often attend court as an Expert Witness.

Much of the work that the firm handles comes from housing associations, major contractors, architects, often directly for them and frequently from referrals to other clients. In addition work is acquired from private clients, councils, ALMOS, general contractors and house builders.

The business is also on two housing association frameworks.
