Detailed design for construction

Binnies has a range of in-house design services that support clients throughout the UK by providing technical solutions to the complex problems that they face. Binnies’ design engineers provide end-to-end technical leadership on projects. Initially, the engineers develop solutions for clients and then progress these through detailed design and then onto the site, thus providing ongoing support for our construction and commissioning professionals in the field. Whenever possible, our engineers consider options, including nature-based solutions, in terms of the client’s wider corporate goals, such as societal and environmental benefits that can be realised in the scheme.

Binnies local project teams are supported by a network of world class technical specialists in water and wastewater process, digital solutions, geotechnics, hydraulics, ecology, stakeholder engagement and network modelling. This knowledge base means that Binnies has the in-house technical expertise and capability to deliver even the most complex of projects and programmes of work, such as Scottish Water’s ESD SR21 framework.

Our delivery design teams are specialists in integrated design-and-build solutions. This means that our designs incorporate constructability and safety considerations at every stage of the design development process. Our engineers drive value across the supply chain for the benefit of our clients. They are experienced in coordinating technical information and design details from our specialist suppliers and integrating them into the overall solution.

We promote the use of off-site manufacturing and standard products in our designs wherever possible to provide additional value such as reductions in time on site and reduced carbon footprints. Our teams adopt a digital approach using 3D modelling and a Revit building information modelling compliant approach to their work. Binnies designers work extensively with our clients’ operational teams to understand the challenges that they face, thus ensuring that our solutions are safe to operate and incorporate operational requirements.

As part of our detailed design for construction services, Binnies works across the water, wastewater, biosolids, and flood and coastal sectors. The types of assets we commonly work on include reservoirs; water-treatment, waste-treatment, water-recycling, biosolids/residual treatment and desalination equipment; pumping stations; and flood and coastal schemes such as the Derby Flood Alleviation Scheme for the Environment Agency.
