Highly Specialised Chartered Engineers

Meet the team

Eur Ing. Timothy Paul Burt BEng CEng MICE. Managing Director (IDH Design, IDH Build & IDH Poland).

With over 20 years industry experience and a qualified Chartered and European registered Civil Engineer, Tim worked with a leading UK Main Contractor and rose to the level of Chief Engineer before focusing on site Temporary Works. Having gained experience as a Main Contractor Temporary Works Design Engineer Tim became the Regional Design Manager for SGB (Harsco) where he headed up all Scaffolding and Formwork Design within London & the Southeast.

On leaving SGB, Tim established IDH to respond to the market demand for quality Scaffold, Formwork and Temporary Works design.  With a strong background in site construction, Tim saw an opportunity to combine the often disconnected “permanent works”, “temporary works” and general site construction activities and combine them all under one umbrella.  It has been a mammoth exercise to combine these often conflicting services but at IDH we are leading the way in providing a new way of contracting.
