Comprehensive infrastructure ownership from feasibility, through acquisition and planning into implementation and operation.
Our Civil Engineering and Infrastructure teams plan, design and deliver a wide range of projects, including highways (standard and strategic), drainage and utilities, and new structures such as bridges. The team work across the UK on a range of projects from new towns, major urban extensions, business parks, high rise, industrial buildings, along with utility infrastructure and rail projects.
The group includes civil engineers, utility specialists, structural engineers and infrastructure designers that have a proven record of delivering some of the most complex infrastructure projects.
Our specialist water industry professionals provide strategic and project advice relating to water legislation, regulation and design for promoters and industry companies.
These teams have a proven excellence in the assessment and design of infrastructure for sustainable new towns and strategic business parks, with a reputation built on delivery of some of the UK's largest development projects.
Support for the design and operation of commercial and industrial buildings is another Brookbanks strength, where we have completed the structural design for various award winning high rise buildings, schools and industrial buildings in the food, construction and automotive industries.

Clyst Honiton Bypass, Exeter.
Brookbanks completed the design and contract administration for this important highway linking the A30 trunk road with the C832 in support of the strategic growth areas east of Exeter city. The route traverses the western boundary of Exeter International Airport and as a result, a new tunnel at the end of the runway needed to be provided, lying beneath the CAA Clearway for approaching planes, which had to be designed for landing forces associated with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The design avoided disruption to the airport and reduced costs through the use of pre-cast segmental arch units and retaining walls.
Our Infrastructure Group worked closely with the project sponsor, the highway authority and the Highways Agency to deliver this important link on time and within budget.
