The business offers innovation services around transport infrastructure (roads, bridges, rail infrastructure). The owners and operators of transport infrastructure face significant issues in that the infrastructure is ageing, with most railways built in the Victorian era and most motorways are now 50+ years old. At the same time, there are a number of disruptive technologies that may offer solutions to some of these issues, or further add to the requirements, such as autonomous vehicles, increased proliferation of smart-phones and access to live travel information.
The business provides research and consultancy around the potential impact of these challenges and technologies, opportunities to develop new concepts and issues around sustainability such as resource management and resilience to climate change and extreme weather events.
Finally, the company offers project and programme management services, particularly for European projects.
