Presenting our expanded Civils Team

We continue to work across a variety of sectors, and our civils team can now offer the following services (but are not limited to!): S278/S38 design and agreements, highway alignment and design, drainage and SuDS design, Flood Risk Assessments, foundation design, earthworks, residential and commercial layouts (inc. FFLs).

Since the company was founded, we have offered Transport Planning and junction design (amongst other services), but as the business grows we want to offer our clients a more complete package- a “one-stop shop” for planning and site development. We therefore have begun expanding our civils team and are now proud to be able to offer a wider range of services on this side of the business.
