How we can help you

New development projects often have an impact on the environment, and off-setting those impacts can pose a financial risk to your project.

Our team specialises in finding pragmatic and cost-effective Engineering solutions that maximise sustainability and minimise your potential environmental related project costs. Typically these include:

  • Designing SuDS techniques to minimise the cost of the surface water system
  • Carrying out site-wide cut and fill exercises to minimise the cost of bulk materials
  • Adopting vibro/lime stabilisation ground improvement techniques to minimise foundations
  • Proposing detailed flood modelling to minimise the potential need for costly mitigation works
  • Assessing the use of capping, encapsulation and even PRBs to avoid the need for the costly exportation of contaminated material  to a licensed tip
  • Avoiding the need for the costly up-grading of off-site combined foul sewers  by intercepting surface water in-flows to create the required capacity.

When we can help

Developers, Local Authorities, House Builders & Estate Managers – If you have a site that you want to develop, involving us at an early stage will help you identify potential environmental issues and minimise many of the environmental related costs through careful planning and sustainably-minded design.

Contractors – If you have decided to tender for a contract to develop a site, we can help you win it. The sooner you speak to us, the sooner we can identify the Environmental Engineering cost risks to your project and the sooner we can lessen them with sustainable solutions.
