Design

Value engineering and a right first time mentality are key to everything we do, particularly from a design perspective.

As our customers networks have matured and technologies evolve there is more focus on providing innovative solutions. Driven by the ever-increasing demand for more equipment and in some instances due to legal restrictions, we treat each instruction as a bespoke requirement, offering a flexibility which allows us to provide schemes that are beyond the reach of our competitors.

Our Design team has the skills, qualifications, experience and expertise to deliver complex solutions ranging from piled foundations in areas where ground conditions are poor, to large steel grillage solutions where we have long span rooftops. We have capability to undertake structural analysis in house with a Chartered Structural Engineer (C.Eng. M.I.Struct.E) and Chartered Civil Engineer (C.Eng. M.I.C.E.) in the Engineering team, helping to fast-track delivery of construction drawings by removing the unnecessary appointment of third parties.

Design aligns with Mono Construction to enhance our experience of site build and commissioning, this enables design to create solutions which can significantly reduce downtime and protect the customer experience. This alignment also enables a Design in the Build phase to be adapted during the works so the build programme is maintained.
