Profile

Structural & Civil Engineering

Ney & Partners is a team of engineers and architects working on the conception of structure and infrastructure. Founded in 1996 by civil engineer and architect Laurent Ney, the office today consists of a main office in Brussels, with offices in Namur, Luxembourg, Tokyo, Bordeaux and Delft.

Our areas of activity

Beyond our core activity of engineering consultancy in civil and structural engineering, we have developed a series of specialisations centred around the conception of structure and infrastructure.

With regards infrastructure, Ney & Partners have gained international renown as designers of bridges and footbrigdes, sports infrastructure, railway and tramway stations and, more generally, all that relates to urban development.

With regards special structures, we develop canopies, glazed roofs, tensile membranes and artists’ sculpture. These projects are all characterised by the complexity of their geometry and structural analysis.

Our timber engineering division, unique in Belgium, works closely with industry and is able to offer a full range of professional services, from design to completion.

Sustainability is at the heart of our preoccupations.  Ney & Partners SUN develops solar structures that incorporate solar panels and architectural structure.

Product design and development with industry in the field of infrastructure led us to the design of canopies, of footbridges, of balustrades, street-lighting and road-sign structures.

 

Ney & Partners SUN is a team composed of architects, glass and façade engineers that focuses on special glazing.

Ney & Partners SUN gives solutions to answer the architectural balance between a need of lightness, transparency, natural light and the sustainability requirements of our time. As specialists our team members are in constant exchange with the glass industry to understand their limitations and possibilities.

By special glazing we understand architectural laminated glazing using specific interlayers, XL or curved glazing, active glazing such as solar, LED or fading interlayers. Structural glazing like walkable glass, glass as a building structure are also part of our expertise.

The link with the Ney & Partners team facilitates to offer glass and steel/wood/concrete engineering in order to bring on site the best detail possible for fixing the glass. Our will is to design the best finished architectural object to suit the project, elegant and transparent solutions
