CGL offers experienced advice on various infrastructure projects from rail, highways and bridges to coastal marinas and docks, together with specialist experience for the energy and power sector. We understand the engineering constraints and opportunities these projects can present for our value-engineered solutions.
Through early involvement at the tender stage, we can review and appraise tender information, helping to identify and quantify ground-related issues for a wide range of infrastructure development sites. We have extensive experience in the reuse of old foundations, construction of new foundations, earthworks design, slope design and stability assessment. Our experience includes road and rail embankments and cuttings, design of reinforced earth slopes and remedial works on failed slopes. We also have in-house contamination and waste expertise to refine disposal classifications and potentially reduce offsite disposal costs.
As a specialist consultancy, we can consider, with the confidence of experience, a variety of options to recommend alternative solutions or value engineer existing designs. These recommendations have led to significant programme and expenditure savings, such as our input into some recent infrastructure projects.
Our technical skills and pragmatic approach, combined with sound knowledge and understanding of legislation and design requirements, means that appropriate ground solutions are provided in accordance with current guidance and best practice.
