Our Civil Engineers use the latest 3D Terrain modelling and Engineering design (Civils 3D) software to design earthworks packages for developers which includes maximising materials re-use on site, setting finished formation, road and ground levels, determining road gradients, informing the design of retaining walls and embankments and developing detailed 3D Cut v Fill models.
We would offer this Service to our clients at both Planning Application and Detailed Design stages in scenarios where developments are proposed on sloping terrain, located in sensitive landscape areas or where there is a requirement to achieve a neutral cut v fill balance to avoid the need for importation of soils to site. Key co-benefits of providing this Service is that our Civil Engineers can also develop the surface water (including SuDS) and wastewater drainage design and the access / internal roads design within the same modelling package, which provides clear synergies and cost efficiencies for our clients. It also enables refinements, modifications and updates to be readily made.
We typically support housebuilders and developers with combined Road, Drainage & Earthworks design packages and the infrastructure design of onshore energy projects such as Battery Energy Storage, Electrical Substation and Windfarm sites.
