About Us

At Frazer-Nash Consultancy we work on the niche, the critical and the novel. Adapting proven technology for new applications or exploring how theoretical advances can be applied to our clients’ systems facing the challenge of a Net Zero future. We are not a building services company, our engineers work across projects ranging from critical national infrastructure sites to local power generators – and often both within the same day. Join us to be involved in multiple projects, across the whole spectrum of engineering sectors and project types.
