Alan Auld Engineering has a long history of involvement in mining projects both in the UK and around the world. As an organisation it has developed particular expertise in the specialist field of accessing mineral deposits.

The Alan Auld Group has experience of the design of deep shafts and surface drifts for mines and nuclear waste repositories, as well as other associated underground structures. The Group has been involved in the design of many of the deep shafts sunk around the world in the past 20 years and has also carried out work on other mine projects, including the recent design of a new friction winder tower for a UK coal mine.

Civil and Structural Engineering

Alan Auld Engineering is active in the civil engineering world designing both structures for clients and providing design and build solutions for clients and contractors. Many of our design staff have a "Contractor" background and this enables us to design structures that uniquely address buildability and logistics issues. Further to this, we can develop the temporary works schemes required to enable the full construction.

Temporary Works

Alan Auld Group offers innovative and cost effective temporary works designs from tender concept through to execution. Designs are based on the extensive practical experience of our senior staff combined with theoretical knowledge and modern analysis practices of our designers.

We are able to offer a full range of design services including the production of design and layout drawings, Contractors methodology and sequencing drawings, and supporting documentation (including the Network Rail Form C and the London Underground CDS documents).

Ground Freezing and Grouting

Alan Auld Engineering has a long history of involvement in the design of ground freezing schemes for civil engineering and mining projects. This specialist techniques is used to stabilize granular material under water pressure and allows excavations for tunnels and shaft to be made without the risk of sudden innundation.

who we are

The Alan Auld Group of companies are a collection of structural & civil engineers, surveyors, and designers headquartered in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. With a wealth of experience in the design of underground structures serving both the civils and mining sectors, we consider our biggest strength to be the in-depth knowledge we possess in the area of shaft and tunnel design.

Though originally a company geared towards serving the mining sector in the design of deep mine shafts, the Alan Auld Group of Companies has diversified in to other areas of the underground works market such as water, power, civils and most recently, rail. To see a portfolio of our jobs in these areas, please visit our Projects page.

In line with our company’s growth, we have expanded our international presence and operate two offices in North America. The first being Alan Auld Canada which operates out of Saskatoon, Canada and the second being Philips-Auld Engineering operating from Tucson, Arizona. Both these offices liaise closely with our UK office on mutual projects, but also offer their own range of services. For more information on our capabilities, please visit our What We Do page.
