Designing in all types of construction materials, our Chartered Engineers use the latest design software and BIM capabilities to produce the most economic value-engineered design that keeps development costs to a minimum.
A key aspect of our works is providing the most economic form of foundation and superstructure design for our clients.
Many of our refurbishment or new build projects are award-winning being chosen for their economic foundation design, tailored frame analysis or complex design.

Our Chartered Engineers provide sound technical solutions for varying small housing development sites up to multi-million-pound commercial developments. We have close working relationships with all statutory stakeholders, such as the Lead Local Flood Authority LLFA, Water and Highway Authorities and where necessary the Environment Agency.
Working within the private and public sectors we offer tailor-made solutions using the latest 3D software to create the most economic site model that we can extract all the necessary information to produce technical and detailed designs, specifications and drawings suitable for pricing, construction and statutory technical approvals
Services we can provide to our clients include:
Pre Planning design guidance
Private and adoptable drainage designs
Highway modelling and adoption designs

We can design and detail road layouts suitable for adoption purposes and private use. We have good working relationships with local authorities enabling projects to gain technical approval for adoption with the least amount of fuss.
When drainage and highways are adopted, we provide design and detail for the adopting authority to award technical approvals such as S278, S38, S185 and S104
