COWI UK Limited's expertise is based on staff with over 30 years experience, drawn from contracting, consulting and academic backgrounds. As recognised specialists we are able to review feasibility designs and advise clients on project cost effectiveness and buildability.

Risk management plays a large part in any geotechnical assessment and design; hazard perception and risk is instilled in our design culture encompassing both CDM responsibilities and the entire project life cycle.

A significant portion of our business comes from existing clients and contractors as a direct result of our emphasis on open working relationships and flexibility. The ethos of the company is to continually develop the knowledge base and specialist skills of our staff through Continual Professional Development and sector-specific training.
