We don't make anything – our business is knowledge
Knowledge transfer and innovation are critical to our business. We don't say we know it all. We are on a continual journey of learning. How many times to consultants produce the same old details and reports, even when they are out of context. Clients want bespoke solutions that are optimal to their situation. Not just what "worked last time".
Our innovation partners – Universities and construction research organisations
Director – Stephen Gibson, has worked alongside the Universities, professional Insitutions and research organisations for many years – in the development of greater understanding and knowledge through innovative applied design solutions.
Portsmouth Univerity are currently studying the detailed water and soil quality performance at Stephen's Mt Vernon development site, following a number of years of various SUDs techniques.
CIRIAs kind assistance over the years is acknowledged.
Promoting UK and international technical knowledge transfer in civil engineering
Stephen presented at the Internation SUDs conference in summer 2012.
"I provide CPD training for professional groups, including Architects, Local Authorities, Developers and Surveyors at minimal cost. Please feel free to forward a request for your proposed event" says Stephen.
"In a talk on sustainable drainage to Chartered Surveyors, Stephen demonstrated good knowledge and experience for delivering practical solutions, and explained all of this with a little humour." Guy Pullen 3CPD http://www.3cpd.co.uk/
I am also open to requests from Univerities, to act as a vising lecturer and assist in the teaching the next generation of Civil Engineers in some of the practical elements of combining hydrology and geology to develop sites in a sustainable way.

Committment to Continual Professional Development
Learning does not finish at University. Learning does not need to be passive, or measured by the number of CPD certificates.
We believe its an entire process of learning and active engagement with the industry in which we work. This includes advising the Government in relation to Impact Assessments for Water legislation and challenging the failures of frameworks which stiffle free and open competition. We offer advice to HM Treasury as to the benefits of enabling more small businesses to compete in major publicly funded capital works.
