Hutchinson Whitlam Associates was formed in 1993 as a traditional partnership but now operates as a limited company.


The two founding Directors, Paul Hutchinson and Ian Whitlam, are both practising civil and structural chartered engineers, who began their careers after graduation in the 1970s. Following successful individual careers with consultants and contractors in the UK and overseas, Paul and Ian joined forces to establish the practice more than 25 years ago.


Paul and Ian are very much general practitioners with a rich depth of knowledge gleaned over many years working within the construction sector.


Ian is no longer a Director but continues to contribute to the business as a Consultant. 

They are supported by a team of highly experienced and motivated colleagues who are able to contribute their own particular skillsets and knowledge to the business.


The practice has a reputation for meticulous attention to detail and for producing engineering solutions that may sometimes be innovative but always practical, are cost effective and are capable of being built easily and safely. We never lose sight of the fact that our design approach can critically affect the construction processes that follow on.


Our approach is to provide a consistently high-quality service, that is sensitive to our clients’ needs, meeting time, cost and technical objectives.
