Highway engineering

Highway engineering forms a key part of BuroHappold’s Infrastructure group. With an integrated approach to major urban strategies and masterplan projects, our highway design experts work on some of the most high profile and ambitious projects in the world.

When delivering landmark projects, we recognise that the highways and streets form a significant part of the public realm as well as the movement infrastructure. The projects that we deliver vary greatly in terms of size, from the small local improvement of a problem footway; up to the masterplanning of the entire highway backbone for a new city or region.

Equally we are involved at all stages during the life of the project; from high level pre-feasibility studies of a new scheme; through the design and construction stages; up to handover to the client of a finished, fully maintained highway or piece of public realm.

Highway and public design forms a significant part of landmark projects

We continue to design highways and associated infrastructure across a wide spectrum of sectors for both public and private clients. We are able to apply the right skills to the right project, utilising the experience and expertise of our specialist team including Chartered Engineers to ensure designs and consultation advice is provided on time and to a consistently high standard.
