Bristol Guided Busway AVTM

Working in both a pre and post consultant capacity on behalf of Balfour Beatty, this complex £35m civils scheme incorporated 5km of dedicated bus route with four new bridges, pedestrian culverts and guided busway sections which required the full array of civil engineering solutions such as band drains, piling (bored and sheet), FRC, innovative concrete and surfacing techniques, earthworks, drainage incorporating pumping stations and wet wells. Through a collaborative working relationship with the client, Bristol City Council, we delivered Value Engineering and innovation savings to ensure the scheme was viable prior to contract and subsequently post contract delivered the scheme successfully and predictably.
