Civil Engineering design

We provide professional services for a wide range of civil engineering projects, for public, utilities companies, commercial and private clients.

Our projects range from small housing estate highways, below ground drainage and retaining wall schemes, through ground and foundation movement investigation, to detailed analysis and design of buildings and structures, drainage and water storage, ground works or foundations for major projects buildings and structures.

Our design expertise encompasses all conventionally adopted materials using recognised and advanced techniques.

We regularly design projects of reinforced concrete and steel framed construction, steel concrete and other composite construction, masonry, timber, structural aluminium and glass construction.

Projects have included the analysis and design of foundations, piling, retaining walls, slopes, embankments, ground anchors, temporary works and below ground drainage schemes.

Designs of more complex structures are undertaken, including antennae, masts, space frames, tensile, cable stayed, stressed skin, post-tensioned and or pre-stressed structures.

Dynamic analysis and design of more dynamically sensitive or critical structures can be undertaken.

Design is fully supported with computer structural analysis design aids and tools, including finite element model and space frame model structural analysis.

Design and drawing is output using CAD facilities.

We value highly and ensure development of a close working relationship with the client, Architect and other design professionals.
