Mission & purpose

AKT II is a design-led structural and civil engineering consultancy that has won over 300 awards for its work in the UK and across the world. The practice was formed in 1996 as Adams Kara Taylor and later known as AKT. In 2011, with the addition of two new Principals and as the next chapter in its progress, the practice was renamed AKT II. We believe in providing a high value and quality-driven model which draws on a wealth of experience through to the successful delivery of a project. In addition to the project work undertaken we work with academic institutions, industry forums, and design councils to enrich our knowledge and the projects on which we collaborate. The Swedish consultancy group Tyréns is also a shareholder of AKT II.
