Civil Engineering

Innovative, economic design solutions for all types of infrastructure and building projects

Civil engineering is the infrastructure that supports the fabric of our everyday lives. From roads and railways to schools, offices, hospitals, water and power supply and much more, civil engineering is responsible for the things we depend on but often don’t even really notice. At Glanville, our civil engineers can be found at the centre of a broad range of projects that include urban regeneration, transport, energy, waste, industrial, commercial, residential, retail, health and leisure developments. With a long history of providing civil engineering services across Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, the Thames Valley and wider UK, our team of civil engineers design, create and connect up much of the world around us.

We plan, design, procure, co-ordinate and project manage projects in both the public and private sector

Our clients and partners reap commercial benefits at each stage through the provision of cost-effective, integrated infrastructure solutions. Many of our engineers have experience of working for local authorities and utility companies and are therefore familiar with their procedures and have a thorough understanding of the requirements and priorities necessary to ensure timely and cost-effective solutions are delivered.

Our expertise, your results

With expertise in infrastructure planning and design, earthworks and 3D ground modelling, pumping stations, sewerage systems, land drainage, flooding and sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), we help our clients navigate through the various complex processes involved with delivering infrastructure schemes.

Our team is also able to provide advice on strategy and regulatory requirements, planning, funding, adoption and construction.

Whatever the stage of the project, we have the expertise to support you. Engaging us at an early stage enables us to help maximise the potential of your project through undertaking site and pre-purchase appraisals, environmental and flood risk assessments, feasibility studies, due diligence and pre-application advice.

As we are a multi-disciplinary organisation, we are able to offer an integrated service that combines conceptual and detailed civil engineering design with our other core services, including geomatics (land surveying), highways engineering, transport planning, building surveying and structural engineering.

Pre-planning specialists

We specialise in providing expert pre-planning engineering advice. Using our experience from a wide range of projects across the UK, we work with you to guide and advise on how your development can achieve planning approval. 

Whether you need to understand the transport implications of your development, the likelihood of flooding or how your development will be drained, our team has the knowledge and experience to develop the right solution for your development.

We are well-versed in working to tight deadlines and in challenging environments and combine technical expertise with industry best practice to find the optimum solution to achieve your project goals.
