Engineering. Our Environment

Our Civil and Infrastructure team provide a comprehensive service including pre-planning, transport planning and detail design work. This is an integral part of our design service and we take full advantage of the synergies flowing from a coordinated engineering approach.

Our objective is to realise maximum potential from sites in sympathy with Environmental standards and Planning constraints. Intelligent Flood Risk Assessments are increasingly the key to unlocking difficult sites whilst ensuring safe occupancy and robust construction to safeguard our Client’s investment. We excel in the design and development of innovative Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems and liaise directly with the Environment Agency and Local Environmental Offices in order to achieve targeted and cost effective design solutions.

We aim to model site terrain in such a way as to retain bulk excavations on site where ever possible and keep off-site disposal to a minimum to lessen the environmental and financial impact of land fill.

Furthermore, we plan for changes in transportation needs in the context of development and advise on potential impacts and mitigation strategies as the landscape changes.We work at a local level to maximise use of available sustainable travel opportunities while our adaptable and holistic approach to solving transport-related issues helps to free up development ensuring a beneficial outcome for all stakeholders.  

State of the art ground modelling software tools are employed to maximise economy in design for earthworks and highways together with Micro Drainage software for site wide drainage schemes and Auto Track for swept path analysis.
