Company profile

Augustus Ham Ltd is an independent company of multidisciplinary consulting engineers for building services based in central London WC1.

The company was founded by Howard Augustus and Mark Ham and commenced trading in July 2011. Howard and Mark were both equity partners for ten years in the consulting engineering practice, Terence Lee Partnership (TLP), which was founded in 1978.

In June 2008, TLP was acquired by Scott Wilson plc to provide mechanical and electrical consulting engineering services for their newly formed Railways Metros division. After completing their contractual obligations, both Mark and Howard decided that they again wanted to provide their clients with an unrivalled level of customer service and engineering services excellence, provided by people who are passionate about the work they produce and their profession, as was once provided by TLP.

This new venture will, as before at TLP, provide advice on every aspect of building services engineering from inspection through feasibility, design and project management for both public and private sector clients within the transportation, industrial, commerce and educational sectors. As before with TLP, Augustus Ham Ltd is focussed on client satisfaction and engineering services excellence.
