About Kingmoor

Company History

Kingmoor Consulting Ltd was established in 2007. Since then we have worked with clients large and small, architects, builders and home owners on new build projects and renovations.

Our home base is in Cumbria, but our expertise has no boundaries. We have worked with a range of domestic and commercial clients throughout the UK providing them with practical advice and design solutions.

Why Kingmoor? It’s the name of the ancient woodland to the north of Carlisle.  Once it was home to a horse racing course, now there’s two nature reserves. The woodland forms a boundary line between the Lowry Hill residential development and the fields to the west. Kingmoor Park enterprise zone is named after this woodland and there is a site of a former manse, Kingmoor House, alongside the Carlisle Northern Bypass. We live next to the woodland on the Lowry Hill estate and our office overlooks the woodland canopy, which changes day to day.

 

Key staff

The business is led by Colin Aimers, a chartered Civil and Environmental Engineer. Originally from the Scottish Borders, Colin started his working life at 18 at Scottish Borders Council as a trainee technician in the Bridges Department before heading to the University of Strathclyde as a mature student. Following graduation, Colin spent three years in the Birmingham and the Midlands working on geotechnical and commercial projects.

Colin returned north to work in Cumbria at global professional services company WYG, and at Atkins at Westlakes Science Park, principally in nuclear and energy related projects before making a move into the renewable energy sector with Wind Prospect. The engineering business under Colin’s direction grew and he managed a range of civil, structural and geotechnical projects across four continents from the bases established in Cockermouth, Durham and Edinburgh.

In 2011, Colin established Nevis Environmental, a business providing environmental support to construction projects and conducting ecology, hydrology and environmental monitoring to the energy sector.

Away from work, Colin enjoys mountains on foot or bike, and spending time with his young family in Cumbria. Colin is supported by a range of freelance engineers and technicians and has a wide range of associates who support more specialist activities such as architectural services.

How Kingmoor work

We believe that working collaboratively, we can achieve more.

And we believe that nothing is impossible: it just needs the right mix of imagination and technical know-how to accomplish it.

So we work with our clients, listening closely to their requirements and offering appropriate solutions.

We respond as quickly as possible. Our workload is only programmed a few days ahead of time, so we can always find time to listen and respond to you.

As civil and structural consulting engineers, we value our work with architects, builders and homeowners. We build trusting relationships with those we work with, and to increase our network of industry contacts.

And what if you work in the construction industry and collaborative working is equally important to you? We would like to hear from you. We can offer the following benefits to our industry colleagues:

  • Our clients choose us because we respond quickly to their requests. This will help you to deliver projects on time and budget with no hidden issues.
  • We provide practical and creative technical solutions; we’re here to understand the issues and fix them when they arise.
  • Our engineers have a can-do attitude: nothing is impossible when the right mix of imagination and technical know now is applied.
