New London Architecture

AKT II

AKT II

AKT II is a progressive, design-led Structural and Civil Engineering firm which offers engineering expertise on a global scale. With current and completed projects in 44 countries worldwide, the practice operates from its headquarters in central London.
AKT II believes that design is by its very nature curious, iterative and subject to refinement and improvement if it is to be successful. We have consistently pushed the boundaries and limits of structure through the use of cutting-edge software and progressive techniques, and are just as comfortable with complex geometries as we are with more traditional forms of design.
Our experience is extensive, covering the commercial, residential, retail, leisure, educational, health and transportation sectors of the market. Projects range from large new-build developments to complicated refurbishments of listed buildings, with contract values ranging from £100,000 to over £750 million.
