Project Manager, Previously Hochtief, now Shay Murtagh Precast Ltd
Andun have always been my preferred temporary works designers for a number of reasons. Their attention to detail, practical approach and site interface management is second to none. There is always a solution when it comes to Angus and his team, no job too big or too small. Also, their modern approach by embracing BIM and modelling their solutions in 3d allows a contractor to present complex temporary works solutions to the operatives in an interactive way which is invaluable from a Health and Safety perspective. I could not recommend them any higher.
Technical Director John F Hunt
We have use Andun over a number of years and they have always provided valuable insight in to demolition methodologies and sequencing and will always have an alternative solution which can provide the edge during the tender process.
Project Manager, Kilnbridge
I have always found Andun to be very practical and methodical about the schemes that they provide, they understand what we do as a business and they always look to prioritise the specialist fields/trades that are available to us and which allows Kilnbridge to manage the entire process and remove the risk of being reliant on a third party to execute works. When situations have arisen at the eleventh hour they have always looked to pull the rabbit out of the hat, to keep a project going
Head of Technical Services at Hochtief
We have used Andun extensively since 2012 for temporary works design, demolition consultancy and tender assistance. They are one of our key external temporary works consultants in the UK. They have also provided outstanding on call assistance and have attended projects with little or no notice when requested and provided pragmatic effective solutions in high risk environments.
Bid Manager Balfour Beatty
Andun Engineering Consultants have consistently delivered build-able, realistic and cost effective solutions for engineering challenges which we face on a daily basis. I find the team working at Andun to be very helpful and committed to seeing a project through to completion and making sure the best solution is implemented to a high standard.
Operations Director, S Evans & Sons Ltd.
Angus and his team have assisted S Evans & Sons on numerous projects varying from road/rail bridges to commercial demolition projects. On each occasion the service provided has been practical and accurate, the knowledge and experience of the team is shared in a professional yet clear manner which increases the efficiency of our planning and ensures execution is understandable at all levels necessary. The staff at Andun are all very approachable and we would certainly recommend their services to any of our peers or clients.
Design Manager, Hochtief
Following positive experiences on previous projects with HOCHTIEF, Andun were appointed temporary works consultant on two projects in central London. These projects included the delivery of a new pedestrian bridge over a railway and the staged replacement of two road over rail bridges. Andun have success- fully provided the temporary works designs on these projects including designs for staged demolition of structures over railways, track protection crash decks, propping of existing structures, crane lifts, excavation supports, assessments of adjacent structures, service assessments, formwork, and falsework. Andun also provided site support when required including during railway possessions.
Andun bring a positive can-do attitude to the team and are readily willing to go the extra step to ensure project success. Through the standard of their designs, presentation skills, and an experienced CRE, Andun built up a strong working relationship with the stakeholders ensuring designs made it through the Network Rail and TfL approval processes in the required timeframe. Andun are keen to work with the project team to find innovative solutions to meet programme requirements and minimise cost. We would certainly engage Andun again and we have no hesitation recommending Andun for the provision of similar temporary works services.
Construction Manager, Hochtief
It is a privilege to recommend the engineering consultancy firm of Andun to any potential new clients that are looking for cost-effective temporary works designs that are tailored to your needs as client, well detailed and offer construction ease.
I began working with Andun back in 2014 and since then I enjoyed working with their responsive and collaborative team which led to a stream of successful outcomes.
Project Manager, Hochtief
Andun’s involvement with the Phase 2 demolition works at the Ardleigh Green bridge project has proved to be invaluable. The practical solutions which were developed by working with the demolition team were a key component to the success of these works. Always professional and dedicated to the cause, it was a pleasure to work with you and your team.
I know that personally, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Andun on future works of a similar type and would recommend them to anyone involved in the planning and execution of complicated phased demolition works.
Coleman & Company
Andun has worked for Coleman & Company for a period well in excess of ten years. They are backed by solid practical common sense engineering know how that is naturally innovative and efficient, supported by many years of experience and a wide variety of projects from small to large simple to complex.
Their commitment to the team is second to none, they have a can do approach, they state clearly if they cannot deliver against timescales proposed. That is not to say they cannot deliver, far from it, after giving reliable achievable deadlines they deliver time and time again. When they commit to anyone or anything it is always with 110% effort, commitment, professionalism and dedication. Another important factor in their attitude is with regard to cost, it is very important to Andun that cost of their design is considered in a variety of ways, comparing time to install versus ease of use and repetitive use of components and designs always having the practical experience to back up that the design cannot only be delivered it can be built / or demolished out in the field.
Andun has worked with Coleman’s on some of the largest demolition projects in the UK, with particular
mention of Birmingham New Street where we have now worked together on this complex scheme for four years. Where without exception, every one of the 150 or more schemes that we have submitted have all been approved without exception. The schemes are innovative, efficient but they are also very well laid out when you receive the drawings; i.e. the drafting of the GA, sequence and details is just right to enable ease of understanding for all of whom who need to use the information.
The safety of a scheme is always the first consideration in any Andun scheme; their proposals are workable out in the field, plus any areas where safety Is a concern hazard triangles are clearly used on the drawings, alerting the reader to the risks that need to reviewed and incorporated in the planning stage and the development of safe systems of work.
Finally, Andun has worked for Coleman’s continuously they have grown with our business, I rate their performance as second to none we would have no hesitation in recommending them for Engineering projects.

Senior Project Manager, Bowmer & Kirkland
Andun have provided practical, cost-effective, temporary works solutions on a number of Bowmer & Kirkland projects. Including the temporary works to facilitate the construction of a large basement at the Landmark project in central Manchester. The scheme made good use of the proposed permanent works, thereby ensuring an efficient design. The integration between the permanent works designers, Andun, and the construction team was excellent which ensured a workable scheme was delivered. The design was produced in 3D allowing good co-ordination between all parties. Andun are now working with us on further schemes.
