Value Engineering to the Infrastructure Industry

As a specialist geotechnical and geoenvironmental consultancy, CGL is uniquely positioned to offer expert advice for infrastructure projects from rail, highways and bridges to coastal marinas and docks.  We understand the engineering constraints and opportunities of sites at these locations, and our value engineered solutions provide our clients with the information they need to make sound decisions.

Working as part of the construction team, CGL have provided design solutions for highway schemes, railway infrastructure and marine and coastal sites.  Through early involvement at tender stage, we can review and appraise tender information on your behalf, helping to identify and quantify ground-related issues for a wide range of infrastructure development sites.  As specialists, we consider a variety of options and thoroughly assess the engineering requirements, which often enable us to recommend alternative solutions or value engineer existing designs. These recommendations have led to significant programme and expenditure savings for our clients on many occasions including input into major infrastructure projects such as CrossRail and the Olympic Park.

Our technical skills and pragmatic approach, combined with sound knowledge and understanding of legislation and design requirements, ensures appropriate ground solutions are provided in accordance with current guidance and best practice.  Our staff are appropriately trained to the highest industry standards, some of which include qualifications for PTS, HSG47, National Grid Person, BESC, SMSTS, CSCS and CGL is SSIP certificated (Safe Contractor).  We are constantly updating our skills to be able to continually provide ground solutions that meet and exceed the expectations of our clients.
