Mechanical design is at the heart of what Eadon Consulting do. We have extensive experience of delivering cost effective, reliable solutions across a wide range of sectors.
Humber cable crawler platform

Structural Design

Eadon Consulting's expertise includes designing both simple and complex structures that are either fixed or integrated with moving elements, such as moving bridges, buildings and access gantries.

Piping & Pressure Vessels

Eadon Consulting are able to offer mechanical piping design and pressure vessel design services. In addition, our structural design capability means that we can design or assess supporting steelwork, integrating it into the pipework model and producing detailed drawings for manufacture.
Finite element analysis


Eadon Consulting’s analysis capability is used to support our own internal design work as well as to support the design work of others and to substantiate existing equipment. In addition to standard static finite element analysis we can also carry out complex and non-linear studies including seismic, dynamic, transient, thermal, time history & blast analysis.

Failure Investigation, Manufacturing Support & Specialist Services

When things have failed or are not working as expected, they typically need resolving in a timely and cost effective manner. With our experience across a wide range of sectors, we are able to bring to bear a large knowledgebase to help resolve situations.

Category 3 Checking and Independent verification

We have a wide range of experience of performing category 3 (Cat III) or 3rd party checks for mechanical and structural equipment, as well as independent design verifications for investors. A category 3 check is usually required on moving bridges, highway structures and is often compulsory on a large range of equipment in the nuclear and offshore industries for devices such as cranes, lifting beams and bearings.

Investigation, manufacturing support & specialist services

Independent site inspections are regularly required to assess the condition of a piece of plant or equipment which may be in a poor condition. Increasingly clients are required to have annual independent inspections to certify equipment for insurance purposes.


“Combining innovation with their world leading experience of moving bridges, Eadon were an integral part of how this cultural landmark was achieved within a highly demanding budget and programme.”

In the news

At Eadon, we offer undergraduates who are keen to gain real-world experience before graduating the opportunity to undertake a 6-week placement. This summer, we’re excited to welcome Chaya Kelly, a mechanical engineering student from the University of Sheffield, who is spending his summer with our team gaining valuable hands-on experience. “Getting some practical experience before you graduate is really useful because it gives you a good idea of what it’s like to work in an environment like this,” says Chaya. “It’s very different from university, which is mainly theory.” Tasked with researching and contributing to the development of a long-reach robotic arm for our innovative REACH project, Chaya has been immersed from the start. “I didn’t really expect to get a chance to do this sort of thing, but it’s been great,” he said. “It’s been particularly useful to use CAD (Computer-Aided Design) at Eadon because at university, it’s been on a more basic level. Whereas when you’re actually printing it, it needs to be perfect. So I developed those skills quite quickly.” The supportive team environment has been a highlight for Chaya. “At the start, you get a buddy who you shadow for the first week or so. You […]

Today, on International Women in Engineering Day, we are thrilled to be celebrating the work and achievements of women engineers across the world. From Edith Clarke, one of the first known female engineers born in 1883 and inventor of the Clarke calculator, to Ruth Amos, who famously created the StairSteady as part of a GCSE project and then went on to promote STEM through her YouTube channels (find them here and here,) women engineers have been making an impact for over a century. So why is it then that women still only make up a minority of the engineering workforce in the UK? A report published by Engineering UK in May this year said “the percentage of women working in engineering and technology occupations dropped from 16.5% in 2022 to 15.7% in 2023, representing a fall of 38,000 women. This is despite the overall proportion of engineering and technology occupations within the UK workforce remaining consistent at 19.2%.”1 Consuelo Bottamedi is one of our female engineers here at Eadon. We spoke to her about her journey into the field and asked her what more she thinks can be done to encourage girls and young women to pursue STEM careers. Watch […]

We’re excited to announce that Eadon has secured a position as a supplier on Lot 1 (Mechanical Engineering) of the UKAEA multi-supplier Engineering Design Services Framework. The Framework, valued at up to £9m, is crucial for developing commercial fusion energy. It includes nine companies and builds on four years of successful engineering and design projects. Our expertise in the nuclear industry, coupled with our extensive experience in handling hazardous environments, positions us perfectly to add significant value to the fusion market. As an SME, being included in this framework is a major milestone for us. It will allow us to progress our sustainable growth plan, invest in our team, extend our capabilities and set us up for long-term success in an evolving landscape. “We already have a proven track record of collaboration, demonstrated through initiatives such as Sellafield’s Enabling Innovation Framework” says Eadon Director, Jim Hill. “Bringing this core value with us, we aim to drive innovation forward by actively pursuing collaborative opportunities within the framework. “This is an exceptional opportunity to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future and we are looking forward to working with UKAEA on their future programs within this groundbreaking sector.” Colette Broadwith, […]

Gull Wing BridgeSignificant progress is being made on the Gull Wing Bridge project in Lowestoft. After the largest section was successfully lifted into place and rotated to the open position, the project has now moved well into the testing and commissioning phase. The bridge is already operating multiple times a day to let vessels through.   The £145 million project is being delivered by Suffolk County Council  and built by Farrans Construction. The last section of the bridge, the bascule span, arrived from Belgium on 4th March and was installed successfully on the 9th. Impressively, this is one of the world’s largest hydraulically lifted, rolling bascule bridges. Eadon is proud to have played a crucial role in the project by providing the lead bridge designers, Arup, with the exemplar design for the operating equipment. Eadon’s involvement has continued through the provision of assistance to Suffolk County Council during the construction stage. Recently we visited the site to do a visual inspection of the bridge and more specifically, operating equipment, prior to the lifting deck being installed into position.  Following a process similar to the Te Matau a Pohe in New Zealand, another rolling bascule bridge we contributed to, the iconic Gull […]
