Aviation Engineering and Design

At Capita Real estate and infrastructure, our engineering and design teams focus on designing, constructing, and maintaining civil engineering solutions for airport owners, investors, and operators across the UK.

Aviation never stands still; from advancing new technologies to changing consumer travel preferences, work in this sector requires agility and thorough risk management. Our multi-disciplinary approach, with expertise across the various phases of masterplanning and design, project and cost management, implementation and operations enables us to advise our clients on full-service solutions. Equally, where we are appointed on a specific phase of a project, our experience affords us a unique understanding of broader complexities and therefore the ability to collaborate with stakeholders and delivery partners on even the most complex of projects.

From runways to airside facilities, we promise passenger safety as standard. Our purpose is leading the way in airport design; delivering smarter and more sustainable construction solutions and the convenient airports people want to travel through. Our passion is delivering the next generation of civil engineering aviation.
