Expedition’s team of experienced engineers offer valuable expertise and insight for the planning and design of infrastructure projects whether this be transport, utilities or bridges. Our integrated multi-disciplinary approach allows us to identify technical opportunities for developments that might be missed by a “discipline by discipline” approach.

We have particular expertise in dealing with sites with complex water environments and flood risk whilst our site-wide energy strategies offer clients solutions that can provide substantial economies over the life of a project.

All of our work is underpinned by our commitment to find design solutions that are sustainable in both environmental and socio-economic terms.

Expedition’s involvement with WSP on the design development of the new HS2 Euston Station in London shows that we can apply our particular engineering skills to even the largest of infrastructure projects. In this case, Expedition’s engineers worked alongside WSP’s in-house engineering team bringing our own particular ideas for adding extra value to the project.
