Permanent Works Design

Although temporary works design constitutes a large proportion of our work, the CDS team also has extensive permanent works design expertise. A link to our case studies is located below.

Permanent works are the parts of a construction project that will be used and remain in position for a long time.  This includes buildings and structures such as bridges, roads & retaining walls.
