We understand and have the expertise to recognise and effectively manage the impact of the unique challenges presented when undertaking highway works, be that associated with the earth balancing or material requirements of large new build projects or the constraints associated with working in a live traffic environment for widening and maintenance.
We know highways and can provide the skill and knowledge to commercially drive these often technically challenging projects. We make sure we understand schemes from the outset in terms of engineering, logistics, programme and risk. We take ownership of commercial outputs to provide welcome cost predictability and certainty for our clients.
We offer proven expertise in the commercial aspects of road building, improvement and maintenance. Our teams have extensive experience in connection with the UK’s strategic road network, including major projects under National Highways’ Smart Motorways and Regional Investment Programmes, and maintenance through Area Teams. Our portfolio extends to local authority and developer schemes, including S278 works.
Our experience covers the whole asset lifecycle, from optioneering to asset disposal/replacement, including cost planning, procurement, and delivery. We have a detailed understanding of the Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works and maintain an extensive cost intelligence database from which we have developed a suite of estimating tools.
The key to the delivery of reliable structure estimates and effective cost plans lies in a thorough understanding of the core engineering methodologies, delivery and programme options; their interfacing and the commercial impact of the many interwoven aspects of their construction. Understanding the requirements for access, temporary works and logistics is key.
Our team has extensive experience in the measurement and pricing of bridgeworks, from relatively simple footbridges to complex multi-span viaducts required to carry or traverse roads, rail, waterways or simply due to topography.
