Our end-to-end services


Design is at the heart of our business. It's how we help bring our customers' projects to life.

So, whether it’s a simple scheme design, or using the latest 3D modelling software, design is at the forefront of everything we do.

A flexible design service around your needs

A good design comes from understanding the project and having a clear view of the project plans, timings and challenges. We know the design stage is crucial to its success, so our aim is to work with our customers from the earliest stage of every project.

We have the largest team of engineers in the temporary works industry. They have a wide mix of engineering skills, and a wealth of knowledge and on-site experience to make sure we design the right solution. 

Digital engineering is embedded in our business, and we were the first to achieve BIM Level 2 Certification for Design and Construction and more recently, ISO19650. We are using this technology ito help us be the best at what we do and help our customers build with confidence.

    From predicting and designing out potential safety risks or excessive costs, to creating brand new solutions to complex projects, our customers rely on our expertise every day. We know from experience that, once on site, unforeseen challenges often happen. That's why our team are always available throughout your project.

    How we can help

    Early involvement

    It's key to understand the challenges of a project at the critical early stage. That's why our team of regional engineers work alongside you, attending early design meetings and providing support for commercial tenders. This key information is then used to inform our scheme designs.

    Our local field engineers are also on hand for site visits and consultations early in the project - getting the design brief right early on, leads to a sustainable, buildable and value engineered design.

    Mabey Hire assisted us during the tender process, not only with costs but also the planning and methodology of their works which gave us a better understanding of the scheme at that stage.

    Scheme design

    Following early consultations, our team of engineers will use the latest software and design codes to complete design analysis and calculations. Using the latest tools such as 3D structural analysis programmes, finite element analysis (FEA) and soil interaction software, our experienced, qualified engineers design and check every scheme.


    Digital design

    With a digital engineering team embedded in our business, we use the latest technology to help our customers design winning bids, reduce the costs of construction, speed up delivery, improve safety and reduce the full-life cost of infrastructure.

    As early adopters of Revit BIM software in our scheme designs and our full library of temporary works BIM objects, we are able to work closely with our clients and collaborate fully on their projects where a Common Data Environment (CDE) has been set up.

    On-site support

    Our involvement doesn't end once the design is signed off and work has begun. Once the temporary works elements of the project have started, there can be unforeseen challenges. Our engineers will be on hand to help resolve these and redesign the solution based on the local site variations and change requests that might occur.

    In addition, all our designs are delivered complete with installation and dismantling sequencing that highlight the significant hazards and design assumptions.
