Some of our employees talk about the projects they've had the opportunity to work on early in their career.

How we help people (and penguins) every day

We make sure London Bridge doesn't fall down

How do you redesign one of London’s busiest transport hubs so it can take more trains, when you can’t expand it and you can’t disrupt the journeys of the 51 million people who rely on it each year? Our designs meant London Bridge could be modified without closing the station, and we used pedestrian modelling analysis to future proof our designs for the next 60 years.

Our energy goes a long way: 220km into the Scottish Highlands

Planning and constructing a vital power transmission line from Beauly in the Highlands to the central and southern Lowlands is no mean feat. Before the 220km of line and 600 towers were built, we played a crucial role in securing planning permission and making sure that the environmental impacts on the natural landscapes were minimal. We called on our experts in everything from geotechnics to acoustics.

We create social housing that can make any resident happy

A great housing scheme meets the needs of the residents. For the inhabitants of London Zoo’s Penguin pool that meant plenty of room to swim, a South American-style beach and rocky play area, and enormous underwater windows, all surrounded by protected trees. We knew the Humbolt penguins were happy because they voted with their feet, happily exploring their new home as soon as they hopped out of their cages.

We take buildings to new heights: 540m and counting

It takes serious brainpower to make tall buildings stand up. Our engineers are the force behind some of the world’s most impressive towers. The Shard in London clocks in at an impressive 380m, and New York’s Freedom Tower at a staggering 540m. We’ve even designed towers over 1km high. Stopping a tall building moving in the wind is just one of the serious challenges our teams overcome.
