M18 Doncaster Robin Hood Airport link, UK

We developed an alternative design for the £81 million link road between the M18 motorway and Doncaster's Robin Hood Airport, pivotal in securing funding.

55%
cost saving opportunities identified by our design review
65%
cut in imported fill by reducing earthworks

Value engineering at its best

Our review identified opportunities for a 55% cost saving, and our alternative design provided 95% of the project scope for £37 million.

Originally, the entire highway was to be dual carriageway but, after modelling traffic, we changed this to just 30% of the route.

Reducing earthworks helped avoid importing fill by 65% and we removed a 1km section of road which would have saved just two minutes in journey time but which would have cost £3 million.

Our role was completed in 12 months – it would normally take 30.
