Residential Engineering Design Projects

Doran Consulting has a long history of providing structural and civil engineering design services to both public and private clients on a wide range of residential projects. Our experience includes providing a full range of advice on the development of new-build suburban residential estates and city centre apartment blocks, and purpose-built residential care accommodation with nursing support for older people.

In addition to new-build projects, we also have extensive experience in providing design advice on the refurbishment and change of use of well-known historic buildings, such as the Ormeau Bakery, into modern residential accommodation, whilst maintaining character features of the original building.

  • Site investigations and contaminated land surveys
  • Earthworks, roads and footpaths, foul and storm drainage for new developments
  • Topographical surveys
  • Slope stability analysis and scheme development for geologically sensitive sites
  • Traffic Impact Assessments and traffic planning issues
  • Junction/ roundabout design  
  • Foundation and superstructure design for new developments
  • Structural design input for refurbishment and renovation of existing housing stock


Our Directors also have experience of providing expert witness opinions in relation to Planning Inquiries.
