Civils & Infrastructure

We have a wide range of specialists delivering infrastructure design and civil engineering services across a diverse range of projects, using their technical skills and expertise to add lasting social value to the communities in which we work UK-wide.

We are focused on delivering best value appraisals on development sites to offer commercially viable solutions but also to address planning requirements and user needs. It’s a fine balance that has to be struck and the solutions we provide reflect how experienced our team is at engaging with all stakeholders and interested parties, and working collaboratively with regulatory authorities to ensure everyone involved is satisfied with the outcome.

Syntegra has experts specialising in flood risk, below ground drainage design, highways design, transportation, foul sewage and utilities assessment, geotechnics and land quality to inform critical decisions on infrastructure design. It’s an illustration of the importance of getting infrastructure right to ensure a site works seamlessly for all parties and provides ‘best value’ engineering.

Through all stages of the development cycle our team will advise you on a range of essential infrastructure and civil engineering issues, including:

  • Flood risk assessments/flood consequences assessments and flood mitigation strategies in accordance with the latest NPPF and PPG guidance.
  • Foul sewage assessment and surface water drainage strategy development and detailed design including attenuation and pollution control proposals in accordance with latest guidance, Building Regulations and Sewers for Adoption.
