Design & Planning & Pre-construction mobile background

Before any infrastructure project can start, there is a lot of design and planning which takes place and can take a very long time. Different types of surveys will need to be completed, detailed costs will need to be calculated and planning approval will need to be agreed.

Geotechnical & Earthworks mobile background

Before anything like a road, bridge or tunnel can be built, the ground must be tested to make sure it can support it or to see if extra support is needed. This may involve employing people with specialised knowledge and machinery.

Drainage & Utilities

Drainage & Utilities mobile background

It is important that any new infrastructure does not cause flooding. Sometimes new drainage is needed to prevent this happening. Utilities including gas, electricity, water and communications are often carried under roads and over bridges to form a network across the country.

Increasingly, we are using wind and other alternative methods of producing energy and these must be linked into existing systems.
