Think of famous civil engineers from the past, and you’d probably come up with the name of the man credited with “building Britain”, Isambard Kingdom Brunel but did you know that Joseph Bazalgette, who saved London from cholera by constructing new sewers was also a civil engineer? Although we mostly associate civil engineering with impressive large structures it is also about maintaining and adapting the infrastructure that we depend on every day – our roads, railways and bridges; energy and water supply; waste networks and flood defences.
Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd is at the forefront of this essential work – helping to keep this infrastructure running effectively and adapting it to meet challenges such as population growth, climate change and natural disasters. Literally shaping the world that we live in. Lawson’s highly qualified team of experts has the knowledge and know how to come up with solutions to complex problems and to implement them. We offer our clients a wrap-around, one stop shop, global service and, with our operational satellite depots strategically placed around the country we deliver a hands on, efficient and reactive service at all times.
Our in-house HSEQ Management, Engineering Support and Project Management personnel enable us to competently deliver complex capital sized schemes and our Planned Works and Reactive divisions benefit from the same support with the addition of dedicated scheduling teams and Area Agents responsible for Health and Safety, compliance and productivity. All key personnel are issued with PDAs meaning they have all the latest information, essential updates and progress records at the tip of their fingers.
Where possible Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd utilise our own vast array of plant and equipment and our Innovation and Investment Manager is constantly looking for that niche in the market which keeps us at the tip of the spear.
