Ground Engineering & Temporary Works Design

It starts from the ground up…

Starting off on the right foot is never more important than in the construction industry. No matter the size of the project, its structural integrity is dependent upon the sound design and construction of its groundworks.

I’m a Builder/Developer…

We can provide you with independent, clear and informed advice during your design and procurement process. Groundworks carry a lot of risk; we can support your engineering team to come up with the most feasible design for your project.


I’m a Civil/Piling contractor…

If you’re entering a tendering process for a design and construction (D&C) project, we can provide clear and independent advice and assist your team in preparing the most feasible design for your tenders and awarded projects. We understand the Civil Industry and we have a tailored service to support your operations.


What we do

Our significant experience and heavy exposure to groundworks and retention systems design allow us to provide our clients with independent, clear and informed advice during the planning, design, procurement and construction process and also assist their engineering teams to derive the most feasible and practical design option for their projects’ groundworks

  • Deep foundation design
  • Piling design
  • Tanked and cut-off basement design 
  • Deep excavation support 
  • Shotcrete & anchor design
  • Temporary propping design
  • Façade retention
  • Demolition work methodologies and assessment

Our experience in this sector is significant, covering all aspects of the design of deep foundations, shoring and ground retention systems, planning, costing and construction support. We’ll be with you from beginning to end.

Why us?

In many circumstances, the ground structure is designed based on limited knowledge of construction practicalities and geotechnical aspects of the structural design. This inevitably leads to a design that must be altered on-the-go to fit the site conditions, or the project budget is exceeded due to exaggerated designs to cover the uncertainties of the ground. 

At Paragon Engineering, our ground structures designs are informed by a complete understanding of the project scope, ground conditions and construction realities. Not only are our designs innovative and appropriate, we can also manage their implementation through to completion. Our team is also highly experienced in temporary design including façade retention, temporary support, structural assessment and load rating for various structures.

What our
customers say

Paragon provided design, advice and guidance during the planning and delivery stages of construction achieving the best shoring design solutions.
