Proven track record

Through framework agreements or project specific commissions, we deliver a wide range of services to the public sector reflecting the very different needs of this extensive client base. By way of example, Hydrock’s track record includes:

  • Complete multi-disciplinary engineering services for town hall facilities, prisons, emergency service facilities, high-security defence projects, healthcare projects and education facilities, with Hydrock delivering flood risk assessments, infrastructure design, transportation and highways design, structural engineering design and building services.
  • Supporting major brownfield regeneration initiatives led by the HCA or through partnering agreements between leading private developers and local authorities, with Hydrock delivering land quality assessments, remedial design strategies and geotechnical studies and designs for earthworks and foundations.
  • Advising local authority contaminated land teams on sites under their jurisdiction to determine if they are contaminated and have the potential to cause harm.
  • Ground investigation services for local authorities to support any future plans to dispose of or redevelop sites.

We are proud of our track record which has unlocked brownfield sites and delivered both practical and well-designed buildings for public sector and community use. In all cases we focus on sustainable outcomes, delivering results that have long-term value and stand up to public scrutiny.
