What We Do

Our services can be broadly divided into three distinct areas, corresponding with the usual UK process for most kinds of development.

 (1) Pre-Planning

Cambria actively encourages early consultant involvement and our pre-planning advice can range from an informal view on likely acceptability of a new highway access, a formal due diligence report on engineering viability, or right through to full pre-planning services including the provision of Phase I Environmental Assessment, Flood Consequence/Risk Assessment, Surface Water Drainage Strategy, Transport Impact Assessment and Travel Plan.

 (2) Pre-Construction

It is often the case that our clients have already progressed to outline planning or independently developed their site location. In our Pre-Construction phase, our services concentrate on the discharging of planning conditions, preparation of Civil/Structural/Environmental/Highways tendering information, design development, contractor tender evaluation,

 (3) Construction

It is imperative that our design information is clear and concise and easily translated and delivered by the contractor. The Construction period is the critical time, where our reaction to unforeseen changes or site parameters can be the difference between a successful project and not. Whilst this period typically sees the least amount of information production, it is the time when we provide the highest levels of support.
