At McAdam we offer a wide range of full project lifecycle services across a variety of engineering sectors including:

Recognising that our lived environment is facing rapid change we are developing and delivering solutions that seek to protect the natural and built environment and enhance our community’s wellbeing. We help our clients tackle issues and build resilience to growing populations, climate change, pollution, and changing lifestyles. We help them achieve regulatory and legislative compliance within constrained economic times. This is achieved through collaborative engineering excellence, innovative thinking and strong programme & project management

Our approach to delivery of affordable and sustainable solutions is built upon teamwork and creation of long-term collaborative partnerships with our clients, construction partners and specialist supply chain members. The success of our approach is demonstrated by the longevity of our position on key frameworks and the breadth and scale of projects we have delivered over the past 60 years.

Our engineering team has significant experience in client led investigations, feasibility studies, concept designs, strategic procurement advice and construction project management. The knowledge and expertise gained from that experience is successfully applied to detailed design services for traditional construction projects, part of design & build partnerships, and in more collaborative delivery models which use Early Contractor Involvement to drive innovation, risk reduction and TOTEX efficiencies.

As part of our multi-disciplinary practice we also offer in-house architecture, project management and Health & Safety Advisor / Principal Design / Project Supervisor Design Process services to supplement our engineering capabilities.
