At Ingent Consulting Engineers Ltd we are a company of civil engineers primarily providing design services to the development and construction industry. Ingent currently has 15 members of staff who are qualified from civil engineering graduate up to chartered civil engineer level.
Engineering design services offered range from producing a variety of pre-planning assessments for residential and commercial developers, through to fully detailed construction design packs.
Site involvement on residential and commercial developments might typically start at an early stage before planning permission or purchase, where the viability of sites will need to be assessed. In engineering terms this is likely to involve consideration of access and drainage without which there is no development. The practicality and complexity of accessing and draining sites will be a major consideration, along with the early identification of any other technical issues likely to affect the costing of a development.
Once the viability of a development is established then projects will move through the planning process and engineering input is often required to assess the impact of the planned development on the local environment and to demonstrate how it will be minimised in accordance with planning policies. In engineering terms this can require the design of mitigating measures to reduce impact, resulting for instance from increased traffic or intensification of surface water runoff.
On receiving planning permission, the Developer’s concept plans need to be translated into engineering drawings that can be priced by builders and used to construct the final product. As well as constructing the infrastructure to enable a development, it may be preferred or required to arrange the adoption of roads and sewers by the adopting authorities and at Ingent we are experienced at progressing the required legal agreements.
Working with developers ranging from single plots to national housebuilders, we have an established reputation for being able to deliver projects from inception to completion.
At Ingent our focus is on producing work of consistent quality, and clients tell us that one of our key strengths is our commitment to long-term relationships and continuity – many of our projects run for several years and have multimillion pound values. Working closely in partnership with clients, we can operate as an extension of their internal teams to deliver solutions that meet their objectives.
