our history

Started in 2012 by experienced engineers Helen Gribbon and Kevin Gilsenan, renaissance grew out of a desire to do things better.

Better, more efficient designs.

Better, more diverse teams that bring different backgrounds and experiences to the table.

Better approaches to reducing carbon and material waste.

It’s been over a decade since we started the journey and in that time we’ve evolved from a small consultancy to a firm with over 25 employees. From our roots working on small yet unique developments like Ashton Baths to working on distinctive, structures-led developments like Manchester’s Viadux, our engineering approach has positioned us as a consultancy of choice for some of the country’s most ambitious developers and architects.
