Be it traditional piped drainage or Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), our Civil Engineering Design team are experts in the field. Working closely with our Flood Risk Management team, they develop designs for our flood mitigation schemes for Local Authorities. The team has access to the latest software and is well versed in current standards, regulations and best practice guidance.

We also work with private developers to design efficient drainage systems for their sites, which enhance the environment and have the potential to increase property value. Our close ties with Lead Local Flood Authorities mean we are well placed to produce compelling drainage strategies and Flood Risk Assessments, to ensure planning application approval without costly delays.

Some of the services we can support you with include:

  • SuDS design and retrofit
  • Drainage strategies
  • Traditional drainage design
  • Flood Risk Assessments
  • Feasibility studies
  • Concept designs
  • Clash detection
  • Flood compensation analysis
  • Water authority approval, including Section 85, 104 and 106

With a robust background in pavement design and materials, our Civil Engineering Design team can ensure that both new and maintenance schemes are specified to maximise durability, whilst meeting the needs of the road user.

We work with highway authorities to design and manage multi-million-pound maintenance programmes, but we also have a niche in developing cost-effective, practical maintenance solutions for private road owners.

Some of the areas we can offer support in include:

  • Pavement design
  • Maintenance strategies
  • Programme management
  • Material specifications
  • Design audits
  • Highway authority approvals, including Section 38 and 278
  • Swept path analysis

Our Civil Engineering Design team has the expertise and vision to create beautiful spaces that provide amenity to the public, while achieving your project goals. We are passionate about maximising environmental benefit through integrated designs, including Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) for water management and improvements to biodiversity.

Whatever the space, we will strive to enhance the environment for all users, whist delivering practical, durable and cost-effective designs.

We can support your project through:

  • Fence to fence design
  • Integrated/complementary design of highway assets
  • Creation of beautiful, sustainable spaces
  • Better use of limited space
  • Enhanced environment through use of SuDS and best materials
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Ground modelling
  • Cut and fill analysis
