Tony Gee boasts an impressive 47-year history in design engineering consultancy. The business started in 1974 with the creation of jacking systems for North Sea oil rigs and pre-stressing systems for segmental balanced cantilever bridges. Our early projects comprised an innovative fin-back bridge in Texas and an iconic commission to design a deck erection gantry for the new bridge over the River Orwell in Suffolk (all 600 tonnes of it!).
Our reputation, globally, grew during the 1980s and 90s, after winning the geotechnical work on the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Building’s basement, launching the Dornoch Firth Crossing and the River Ceiriog Viaduct. One of the more notable projects of the era being the undertaking of the A38 Marsh Mills Interchange, which, at the time was British civil engineering’s biggest ever bridge slides.
Tony Gee’s millennium projects further confirmed the firm’s reputation for handling projects of stature and complexity. We were chosen to design the foundations for the London Eye and deliver the major components of the Falkirk Wheel, the latter receiving a ‘Project of the Century Award’ from the International Federation of Consulting Engineers Centenary ceremony in 2014.
Since establishing a global presence, Tony Gee’s notable international projects include the New Yamuna Bridge in India, design of cables and temporary works for a 1km tightrope over the Han River in Seoul and being selected as an independent verification and validation team on the Taiwan High-Speed Rail project, comprising 345 km of railway.
From humble beginnings, Tony Gee now has over 500 staff across twelve offices globally. The initial aim was to make bridge-building safer, quicker and more cost-effective. Today, Tony Gee provide highly technical design engineering consultancy services to a wide range of global clients. There have been many changes in the industry, but Tony Gee retains its independence (under owner-management) and our fundamental values remain the same. We will continue to find better solutions for challenging construction demands well into the next half-century.
