History:
Max Fordham started his own practice in the spare bedroom of his Camden home. It was 1966. He was 33. In the 40-odd years since, the practice has grown to more than 180 people in five offices around the United Kingdom.

The Cambridge office opened in 2000 and a job won at Telford College in Scotland led to a presence in Edinburgh, where the office celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013. Continued growth of the Practice resulted in the establishment of offices in Manchester and Bristol in the same year.

In 2010, the Practice celebrated with Zaha Hadid Architects when the Museum of XXI Century Art (MAXXI) won the Stirling Prize. The award is one of many secured over the years, including the Doolan Prize, the most lucrative award in British Architecture, for the National Museum of Scotland with Gareth Hoskins Architects. Max Fordham also won the Best New Project at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards in 2012 (Brockholes Visitor Centre) and 2013 (The Hive, Worcester).

History:
“Structures, a 24 year old, Austin based structural engineering design firm, works with owners, architects, contractors and consultants to realize project goals.  We offer full design services including feasibility assessment, schematic design, design development, construction documents and construction administration for new structures.  Our reputation for strong project coordination as well as our vast knowledge of building systems, offer our clients a fully integrated structural design that is efficient, economical and constructible.  Throughout the design process, we are mindful of the architectural intent, the needs of other consultants, the contractor’s assembly and the owner’s goals.

Jerry Garcia founded Structures in 1990 specializing in residential projects. He began with small projects and as his reputation for good engineering grew, so did the complexity, scope and company staff. One of our most complex residential projects was a $35 million dollar residence that implemented a wide range of structural approaches to satisfy the architectural intent and construction schedule. This variety of structural solutions included structural steel, suspended cast in place concrete, pan joist concrete systems, load bearing structural CMU as well as light gage metal assemblies.

Structures has grown to provide services in other markets including higher education, government, hospitality, commercial and healthcare. Our focus on client service, proactive coordination and consideration for constructability that we cultivated on residential projects, has contributed to the great success on projects in other markets. Our ability to respond to unique structural challenges on time and within budget has earned our firm great recognition and respect among our peers in the design and construction industry.” (source)
