Sectors | Pavement Engineering

Global experience

Our experience from current work and previous work with other consultants includes pavement maintenance strategies for major road privatisations in the Netherlands, Turkey, Ireland, Brazil, and Finland.

The experience of our team also includes development of the latest concrete paving designs through our long association with the British Insitu Concrete Paving Association as well as the development of the pavement engineering specifications (MCDRW Series 700, 800, 900 & 1000) for bitumen bound and cement bound materials, other hydraulically bound and unbound materials for the National Roads Authority (NRA) in Ireland.

Pavement engineering

What can we do?

Our meticulous approach to design and planning includes utilising vehicle movement modelling and 3D modelling across our pavement and infrastructure engineering projects, giving clients the twin benefits of onward usability and design flexibility, enabling plans to be tweaked or evolved where necessary. Our capacity to think forward about all elements of environmental challenge means that the pressures brought about by climate change are always at the forefront of our solutions, ensuring future durability and sustainability.
