We’re experts in civil design, creating intelligent infrastructure that delivers the immediate and long term benefits civil projects demand. Our skills and experience span the full civil range, from straightforward drainage briefs to the end-to-end management of large, complex projects. As always, our approach is based around the commitment and attention to detail that’s made Holmes Consulting a watchword for engineering quality for nearly six decades.
When we work on civil projects, we bring the full weight of our engineering expertise to bear. We’ve worked on structures of all shapes and sizes, in all types of terrain and conditions – the ideal knowledge base to create efficient, effective civil designs. We pride ourselves on our ability to explore new options, and break fresh ground in civil design when there’s the opportunity to save time and money. Often, we’ll find improved ways to connect the services between the building and the municipal infrastructure, delivering systems that deliver better performance, risk mitigation, and longevity.
We’ve designed things like access roads, sumps and slot drains, swales and rain gardens, detention ponds, and attenuation devices, setting levels to make sure water falls in the right direction. We’re also experts in pavement design, creating the robust platform properties need to stand the test of time. We’ve provided large scope civil engineering services to great projects like the Southern Cross Hospitals in New Plymouth and Palmerston North, the Christchurch Town Hall, and the Lake’s Edge subdivision in Queenstown.
