Best practice design approach
We use the latest Civils 3D software to create the optimum designs for all our projects, whether that be connecting a distillery or visitor centre with the road network, or implementing junctions for multi-structure developments positioning residential housing close to schools.
All designs efficiently navigate regulatory requirements such as:
- statutory consultation processes with impacted stakeholders
- planning applications
- road construction consent applications.
Detailed understanding of technical standards
Meeting technical standards is vital to ensure a project can be delivered smoothly and correctly and, if required, that a road is eligible for adoption by the council for maintenance, with refuse lorries able to access the property. Our team has detailed knowledge of:
- Transport Scotland’s Design Manual for Roads and Bridges
- Forestry Commission Construction Standards
- Road Construction Consent
- Road Opening Permits
- National Roads Development Guide
From delivering projects across Scotland, we also have experience of the variations of official standards for road design across different local authority areas.
Electric charging is becoming a standard consideration in new car parks and we collaborate with electrical designers to develop a layout with the appropriate space.
