About the Company
Inhabit is an innovative consulting group exclusively focused on providing specialist engineering services. We complement traditional engineers and architects and deliver technical input to improve the quality and efficiency of today’s buildings.
We recognise the challenges faced by project teams in appointing, co-ordinating and managing a large number of secondary consultants. We aim to simplify this process by grouping these consulting services together and delivering them in a more efficient and coordinated manner.
With delivery through offices across the UK, Middle East, Asia and Australia, we are able to provide much needed on-the-ground support to our clients. At Inhabit we aim to deliver fully coordinated services incorporating both local constraints and world best practices, in what we believe is the most effective way possible.
