Water, Power and Gas Advisory & Digital

In our work in water, power, and gas, our digital and advisory colleagues collaborate to deliver regional and national infrastructure projects with a technological edge.

Our multi-disciplinary team has delivered architectural, civil, structural, and mechanical and electrical design across several pioneering electric vehicle charging schemes for clients such as the Driver and Vehicle Agency, Northern Ireland, Brent Cross Waste Transfer station and for the Environment Agency.

As one of our most relevant projects, demonstrating our multi-disciplinary approach, our role on National Grid’s London power tunnels project saw us design appropriate logical and physical partitioning of new facilities throughout the tunnel and four headhouses, integrating existing facilities with new systems designed for the scheme. Our team designed a distributed temperature sensing system featuring an advanced linear fibre-optic based system that interfaces with fire systems, along with fixed and mobile radio communications, providing optimum radio coverage for all parts of the tunnel and headhouses.

The telecommunications and control system provides optimal commonality with other National Grid systems deployed at other cable tunnels, whilst making best use of continuing product developments in the marketplace. Existing assets to be retained were fully integrated, leading to the most cost-effective, yet safe and functional scheme delivery.
