A development project may already have an architect on board to oversee its design, but it is also necessary to bring in the services of civil engineering specialists. They review the proposed plans and ensure that ideas on paper can feasibly translate into reality, saving you both time and money if they discover the materials, dimensions or structure of your building won't be mechanically viable or comply with building regulations.
This is the value Mackoy can bring to a development – our qualified team will work with the client to make their architect's vision a reality.
It is crucial to review construction proposals from an engineering perspective as well as an aesthetic one, as this will determine whether the proposed ideas are viable and safe, as well as if the construction can be completed to the set timeframe and budget.
Our civil engineers investigate, as standard, a number of different aspects in order to assess a construction plan, not only applying complex calculations to determine if the building can be made mechanically safe and structurally sound, but also looking at environmental, physical and geological factors. Any necessary adjustments and improvement suggestions they make will protect both a client's investment and the architect's reputation.
Our surfacing and paving work provides exterior finishes completed to the same high specifications as our groundwork infrastructure. From neatly tarmacked new roads to beautifully block-paved driveways, we have the plant and the capability to construct surfaces that can withstand life's daily pressures.
A site investigation is the key to unlocking what can be built and where. It combines soil spot sampling techniques with comprehensive site assessments to determine any historic land contamination and the ground's suitability for development.
No new home would be complete without plumbing and waste water disposal. As part of our groundwork infrastructure, we create the trenches for these essential services, connecting homes to mainland sewers and ensuring there are provisions for fresh running water.
Roads are an integral part of keeping Britain moving, not only countrywide, but within local communities too. Our groundworkers help to connect new homes to their wider geographical location. Providing safe passage for people to get where they need to go.
