Our engineers liaise directly with our in-house architects and surveyors to produce effective and cost-efficient solutions to the civil engineering requirements of all our projects. This collaborative approach between our architects and engineers together with our engineers’ understanding of the architectural discipline allows robust and affordable implementation of important design aesthetics
Infrastructure assessment and delivery - From first principles the Engineering Team at Woods Hardwick carry out assessments of potential infrastructure problems to assist clients in determining project viability. Once acquired infrastructure delivery is managed to completion, ensuring that designs are value engineered to maximise client benefit.
Highway engineering, and traffic impact assessments - Our work in traffic engineering, highway design, road safety, transportation planning and sustainable transport, aims to improve the highway environment. Delivering safe, sustainable transport systems whilst recognising financial and deliverable constraints is fundamental to our clients.
Green travel plans - We offer a comprehensive and systematic process that identifies transport issues relating to a proposed development. Measures to deal with how transport impacts on a scheme to improve accessibility and safety are implemented for all modes of travel, including walking, cycling and public transport.
Drainage and Flood Risk
Drainage - Woods Hardwick specialises in undertaking all aspects of drainage design for the domestic, commercial and industrial markets as well as a range of land and environmental issues. We specialise in finding cost–effective solutions to all drainage issues, including outfall problems, surface water control, flood protection and calculation of 'green field' runoff and associated buffer storage.
Flood risk assessment, in support of planning applications - When planning for climate change and flood risk, we understand the constraints and opportunities which influence development impact upon the environment.
We evaluate schemes to assess the different impacts of alternative waste management options, including landfill, composting, re-use, recycling and source reduction.
Assessments to quantify the impacts on the environment, both in terms of resource use and emissions or wastes of a product, process or policy are also advised.
