GCA Consulting Engineers has announced it has moved to offices created in a historic building in Derby city centre.

The firm, which offers civil and structural engineering design services for commercial, industrial and residential schemes, has relocated its headquarters to St Helen’s House, in King Street.

The move follows a period of strong growth and development at the firm.

Designed by Joseph Pickford, St Helen’s House is a Grade I listed, Georgian building.

It was previously home to PKF Smith Cooper, which relocated to Pride Park in 2022.

Since then, St Helen’s House has been renovated to provide bespoke corporate offices.

Alongside GCA Consulting Engineers as anchor tenants, Derby-based City is providing fully serviced Grade A office space from single desks to 3,000 sq ft suites.

GCA has been operating in Derby for nearly 50 years, providing civil and structural engineering consultancy.

In addition to its Derby headquarters, it also has offices in Warwick and Leicester.

The firm has recently won a series of national awards for landmark projects, including Derby Museums’ multi-award-winning Museum of Making.

James Thomson, managing director at GCA, said “As well as our innovative new-build and commercial work, we have a fantastic portfolio of heritage projects.

“After working on so many Grade I, II and II* Listed projects, moving to such a prestigious building feels absolutely right for the practice. The move mirrors our confidence in the future of the firm.”
