Civil Engineering

Edge Structural Design has a wealth of experience for providing top standard civil engineering works from our offices in Greater Manchester.

We work across the UK and have completed a diverse range of projects in Greater Manchester, the Liverpool City Region, Yorkshire and London.

Our highly trained civil engineer team keep up to date with the latest design and modelling software. As a result, they are able to produce 3D models for both the infrastructure and drainage elements of a project. This enables us to produce the most cost-effective, efficient structural design solution.

We work with a range of sectors, clients, and projects. Whether it be initial engineering strategy reports for drainage or external works drawings, Edge Structural engineers can provide you with an efficient and high standard solution.

As multi-disciplinary engineering consultants, we often act as both structural and civil engineers on projects, ensuring a smooth, collaborative approach from start to finish.

A recent example of our specialist civil engineering services was our role in the construction of a £5 million swimming pool and leisure centre in West Yorkshire.

We worked on the project at Minsthorpe Leisure Centre, which included overcoming challenging ground and drainage conditions. The site does not have a long history of use, other than the previous pool, so the ground conditions were quite challenging with low bearing characteristics.

We used vibro-compaction to improve the ground’s weight-bearing capacity required for the proposed heavy building. Furthermore, as part of the planning conditions, we were asked to improve the site’s drainage to address the national planning policies to reduce flooding. So, we successfully overcame a number of challenges.

We work closely with architects and other construction professionals throughout the design and construction phases, using advanced 3D design and drafting software. This includes BIM (Business Information Modelling), a digital information and modelling process that allows numerous professionals to jointly plan, design, construct and manage projects. BIM is increasingly required across the world.

Some of our projects have included assisting with temporary platforms for pilings rigs, site hoarding designs and temporary propping, and inspections and reports about urgent cases such as fire-damaged buildings.
