Western Counties

Welcome to the Western Counties Regional Group

The Western Counties Regional Group (formerly branch) was founded in 1923 and represents members of the Institution of Structural Engineers in Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire (excluding the district of Salisbury). We are a proactive group, putting on a monthly programme of evening meetings, technical seminars and training courses.  Please see the events list below for further information.

We can be contacted for any matters relating to our work, or the work of structural engineering in general by email. Please contact our Regional Group Secretary by clicking the Contacts option on the right.

As well as providing group information and contact details for representatives in this area, these pages also feature relevant news and events specific to the Western Counties region. These events and news articles will be updated regularly - so please return to this page to ensure you stay abreast with up-to-date information.

There are a number of technical presentations and social events throughout the year to promote the activities of the Institution and to benefit the local membership. There is no booking and these events are free unless noted. Guests are also welcome. We also encourage members to attend the Institution of Civil Engineer events in this region.

If you would like further information please contact our Regional Group Secretary by email at: western.counties@istructe.org.
