A better, more efficient future for engineering. We apply the principles of Design to Value to our engineering to:
■ Deliver genuine value in terms of functionality, sustainability, safety, and cost efficiency.
■ Thoroughly test, learn from, and optimise designs well in advance of construction and in-use scenarios to capitalise on opportunities, guarantee successful delivery, and realise targeted value drivers.
We are a diverse team, with engineers from different backgrounds, countries, sectors and specialisms. This gives us the breadth and depth of knowledge, expertise, and experience to generate fully integrated solutions that are easily delivered.
Our engineers are analytical, but also creative - people who can generate new, robust ideas. At every level, we’re hands-on and use our experience to make engineering consistently work harder for design. We’re constantly looking for new methods, products, and materials, as well as new ways of finding and interrogating data.
We perform assessments to understand the full environmental context of a project and work with regulatory bodies to mitigate constraints to the proposed development. This includes Flood Risk Assessments, utility diversions, and scoping of all necessary investigations.
We assess all environmental systems, including:
— Existing infrastructure such as utility diversions and easements
— Hydrological, flooding and hydrogeological (including Flood Risk Assessments)
— Ecological and arboricultural
— Geological and geotechnical
— Geo-environmental and hazardous substances
— UXO and in-ground hazards
— Archaeological and heritage
We produce drainage designs which appropriately manage surface water and foul water discharges with minimal below-ground infrastructure and a strong focus on sustainable systems.
We produce external works designs that consider the hardstanding material selection and levels for access and drainage requirements. We also produce groundworks designs that quantify material excavations and consider cut and fill balancing to minimise dug material movements to and from site.
We produce utility designs that enable suitable supply and distribution around the site. We have substantial experience working in the data centre sector so can design the most complex of utility arrangements.
We consider the pedestrian and vehicular transportation and access requirements for a project including existing infrastructure upgrade works and development logistics.
We use advanced, collaborative BIM compliant modelling to thoroughly test and optimise designs well in advance of physical works - delivering solutions that explicitly visualise a proposal, accurately represent its behaviour, and enable cumulative learning.
We apply the principles of DfMA to infrastructure projects, developing systemised solutions with standardised ‘kits of parts’ that maximise off-site factory fabrication and simplify on-site assembly.
We build bespoke software solutions to automate design processes to both improve the scope of optioneering, reduce human errors, and significantly reduce design time.
We have extensive experience solving civil engineering-related problems and delivering designs that consistently stand out for their effectiveness, innovation, and environmental consideration. We relish unusual challenges and structures, and work on a broad range of projects across all sectors.
The huge range of projects and sectors we have been involved in means that our design approach has been applied, tested, and rigorously perfected against the vast number of challenges that can be encountered in the building construction industry. From residential projects with strict drainage authority and flooding considerations, to data centres with dense and complex utility requirements.
Bryden Wood’s holistic approach to design means that the Civil Engineering department is integrated within the context of the wider company and so gains a thorough understanding of the complete picture of a project and a deep appreciation for the importance of design interfaces.
As a team, we’re committed to perfecting our design approach to guarantee design effectiveness, minimise environmental impacts, and maximise resource sustainability.
Innovation is fundamental to this philosophy, and we use detailed BIM compliant models to visualise the coordination of all below-ground assets to ensure correct spatial arrangements and prevent delays during construction.
