Please contact Dr Orr to discuss consultancy services. Dr Orr and colleagues can provide consultancy in a variety of areas relating to structural engineering, civil engineering, and the built environment. Examples of work that can be undertaken include:


  1. Structural engineering project work and design;

  2. Laboratory testing - to BS EN standards or using bespoke methods;

  3. Computational modelling;

  4. Technical report writing.


Dr Orr has completed consultancy projects with The Highways Agency, Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald, Atkins, as well as for private clients.


Consultancy work is supported by specialist structures, geotechnical, fluids, and environmental laboratories with advanced testing and computing facilities. The University of Cambridge has extensive experimental capabilities, which are extended through a global network of academic, research and industrial collaborators.

A very wide range of testing and material characterisation facilities are available. Please see the links below, or contact Dr Orr to discuss your requirements.

Structural design

e.g. FRP elements, prestressed concrete structures, analysis

Laboratory Testing

e.g. full scale element testing (1MN+), bespoke instrumentation, etc.


finite elements, parametrics, meshless methods
