Our commitment to providing best value for our clients is driven through a culture of innovation, safety, research and development. We constantly improve what we do and how we do it, as we actively develop and tailor solutions to meet client needs.
Our track record in bridge engineering spans over a century. During this time we contributed to numerous Thames crossings in London, the Tyne Bridge in 1928, then the longest steel arch in Britain, and major suspension bridges in the 1960s such as Tamar, Forth and Severn. Today we're involved in projects on every continent.
Today there is a need for even faster delivery, more cost certainty and better value. By embracing new methods of procurement including early contractor involvement initiatives, and by partnering with the public and private sectors, we increase the speed of project delivery while providing other benefits. Our collaborative partnerships allow for the generation of more constructive input, better risk management and forward planning as well as more scope for innovation which in turn means greater value.
We implement sustainability principles into designs. We've developed tools to quantify sustainable indicators and undertake life cycle analysis.
We also lead the way in the use of building information modelling and LEAN, stripping out procedural waste. Using the latest technology and software, we're able to consider and resolve the challenges that arise on projects. We work closely with partners and clients to integrate and form award-winning teams.
