Inertia Consulting provides a range of award-winning bridge and civil engineering structure consultancy services to private and public sector clients across the UK.
The sectors we operate in include rail, highways, water, energy, legal, and commercial and residential construction. Our integrated services span civil engineering consultancy and design, bridge inspection and stock management, non-destructive testing, structural monitoring, capacity assessment, temporary works and more.
Our engineering consultancy services include bridge and civil engineering structure design, strengthening and repair design and supervision, and feasibility and option reports. These can be combined with one or more of our other services to create an integrated, end-to-end project management service that’s tailored to your precise requirements.
The Inertia Consulting team has many years of experience in managing, undertaking and reporting on bridge inspections across the UK and overseas. Our unrivalled expertise makes us the first choice for high quality bridge inspections on road, rail and water infrastructures. Projects range from single bridge inspections to extensive stock management programmes.
Our range of non-destructive testing and structural investigation services combines traditional and advanced techniques to provide a one-stop shop that enables you to manage your structural assets effectively. To give you complete confidence, our projects are always led by Chartered civil and structural engineers and specialist testing experts.
Why we’re different
Firstly, our attention to detail is second to none. When investigating or inspecting a problem for a client, we don’t adopt a one-size-fits-all, ‘tick-sheet’ mentality. Instead, we take a comprehensive approach that’s customised to the project in hand, carried out by experienced and qualified engineers who are committed to doing a thorough job.
Our areas of expertise include several highly specialist skills, such as confined space entry and control; expert witness services to the legal sector; and innovative problem-solving techniques for complex design, inspection and testing projects, and temporary works.
All our services are managed in-house and delivered by the Inertia Consulting team and our partners. This means we can offer a fully integrated ‘one stop shop’ service that represents genuine value for money and frequently exceeds our clients’ expectations.
A reputation for excellence
We’re proud of our reputation for providing the highest quality services to our prestigious client base. Our engineers regularly score in the high 90%s in client satisfaction surveys – which is testament to our client-focused approach and attention to detail.
Combining industry-leading civil engineering skills and expertise with the latest systems, software and equipment, we can offer our clients high quality, safe and sustainable solutions tailored to the precise needs of each individual project.
Wilford Suspension Bridge
In 2008, Inertia Consulting identified that the 70m Wilford Suspension Bridge in Nottingham had deteriorated significantly from previous inspections and its load-bearing capacity had become substandard. We were therefore appointed by Severn Trent Water plc to carry out a principal inspection, dimensional survey, capacity assessment, refurbishment scheme design – including temporary works – and construction supervision for the bridge.
