Expedition provides strategy, planning and multidisciplinary engineering design services on urban development and infrastructure projects. Our work includes a number of high profile urban regeneration projects and estate masterplanning.

We enjoy working on projects which are technically challenging and unlocking development potential. We have particular expertise in dealing with complex water environments and flood risk. Our work also includes site-wide energy strategies, transport hub integration, and estate strategies.

We recognise the importance of well designed and integrated infrastructure in creating sustainable places and enhancing the quality of life of people.
