Civil Engineering

Thomasons team of Civil Engineers combine experience and innovative thinking to produce practical and cost effective design solutions.  We work closely with clients from all the major infrastructure sectors across the UK.  Sustainability is a key consideration within the team and it is factored into the development of all projects.

Our field of expertise ranges from pre purchase and risk identification advice to clients, through to implementation and final hand over.  The team can provide planning support and a full range of design services including site investigation, ground remediation, geotechnical design, flood risk analysis, highways and drainage design, ground modelling and utilities advice.

Associations with ecologists and contaminated land specialists provide additional services and areas of expertise which we can offer to our clients.

In addition to engineering and technical specialisms, the team can provide procurement and contractual advice which is specific to a client’s individual requirements.    We offer a range of services which include Project Management, production of tender documents, tender assessment and contractor appointment as well as on site Contract Administration.

Throughout each stage of a project, the team will aim to produce robust, cost effective and sustainable design solutions which will minimise their environmental impact for the benefit of future generations.
