Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering Division has a wealth of experience and expertise in both the private and public sector. Our team offers a professional and individual approach to every project delivering high quality, cost effective solutions with particular emphasis on detailed cut and fill/drainage appraisals, to value engineering projects.

Highway Engineering

Our Civil Engineering Team specialise in the design and approval of new and modified highways including highway structures, drainage and Home Zone Style areas.

Our expertise covers schemes from small elaborate residential roads to major roundabouts and signalised junctions on national trunk and strategic highways. 

Designs are produced using state of the art 3D highway modelling software and clearly presented on CAD produced drawings. We pride ourselves on preparing drawings and technical information that are to both the client’s expectations and to the local planning authorities approval.

Water Engineering

With expert knowledge and ability in the field of Water Engineering, at HSP we have extensive expertise in preparing  Flood Risk Assessments and Drainage Feasibility Studies that are required for the planning approval process. 

Our Civil Engineering department pride themselves in preparing technical reports and documentation that provide solutions to sites that are deemed not eligible for forward development due to flooding issues. 

We endeavour to provide solutions that are cost effective, whilst being satisfactory to the local planning authority; with a purpose of obtaining planning permission for your development.

Drainage Design

At HSP, our Civils division have the capabilities to design both private and adoptable networks using industry leading software to help produce cost effective solutions to current standards.

We also have expertise in Attenuation optimisation, utilising Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions (SUDS) in line with current best practice.

As part of the scope of works for Drainage Design, we have the capability to independently co-ordinate drainage surveys to assist in the design and approval process. 

Cut and Fill

With regards to Cut and Fill, Our Civil Engineering Team specialise in the following:

Earthwork Strategies and Earthwork Specifications individually tailored to each project to reduce costs whilst providing suitable solutions.

Volumetric Analysis utilising 3D Ground Modelling.

Interpretation of Ground Investigations to aid in producing best value design.

Supervision of works including compaction methods and specialist features like balancing ponds and noise bunds.

External Works Design

With regards to External Works Design, our Civil Engineering Team have expertise in the following:

Private Construction Specifications optimising construction requirements to ensure best value throughout the design.

Access Appraisals using the latest tracking software and experience to interpret current standards to help facilitate developments.

3D Surfacing Design helps provide clear and accurate solutions assisting in Earthwork Analysis and Drainage Design. Such works include all external works i.e. service yards, access ways and car parks.

Value Engineering

With our depth of knowledge, experience and commercial awareness, we can often reduce construction costs by delivering efficient solutions through Value Engineering Appraisals of existing proposals and exercising diligence throughout the design process.
