Who we are

4c Engineering are a close-knit, supportive team of creative, innovative engineers who love getting stuck into challenging technical problems and coming up with high quality solutions.

We maintain a focus on projects and ideas with genuine, useful benefits, whether that’s in sustainability, environment, healthcare, efficiency, or a more user-friendly design.

We are also committed to raising up the next generation of talented engineers, and have very much enjoyed accommodating summer students over the last few years.

> Andy Hall


Andy Hall

MEng CEng MIMechE

From a degree in Aeronautical Engineering, Andy started working in the marine renewables industry with turbine design. He has built up strong research & development skills, progressing designs from selection of concept to manufacture before testing and validation at remote test sites.

He has a broad range of skills including stress analysis, 2D & 3D CAD, Finite Element Analysis, project management, creation of procedural documentation and planning & supervision of site works.

In his spare time Andy enjoys getting outdoors: heading up hills or trail running, which he offsets by being 4cE’s main challenger in the shared office’s competitive baking.
