Soil Stabilisation, Leicestershire

Having worked in partnership with Leicestershire County Council since 2008, the client approached us for a sustainable solution to road construction that minimised traffic movements, caused less disruption and contributed to CO2 savings.


GIS Mapping, Walsall

Working alongside KaarbonTech, who provide data collection, maintenance advice and flood risk analysis, an initial data collection exercise was carried out within the existing costs, over 2 years from 2013-15 so that a ‘needs based’ flexible cleaning regime could be adopted.


Operations Restructure, Walsall

With the likelihood of reductions between 20-30% in highway budgets over the next few years, we were met with a growing requirement from our client to provide a service that is business effective, demonstrates value for money and gives us a consistent manageable platform that meets the requirements of the contract. In order to achieve this we needed to ensure that we had the right business structure in place to take the business forward and remain competitive.
