Civil Engineering

Part of SES, our Special Projects team has developed a leading reputation within Britain's civil engineering sector. Diverse clients rely on our innovative civil engineering know-how making Special Projects better suited to the challenging environments and toughest technical requirements. 

The SES brand is fast becoming synonymous with AD plant installation, successfully taking the principal contractor roll on AD plant installations and we are happy to lend our expertise and share in our successes. At SES we make the difficult seem easy. 

SES is proud to be associated with green energy and recycling solutions as well as supporting the more traditional industries like the utilities and transport sectors. We excel at tasks including open-cut excavations, drilling, grouting, rock anchors and soil nailing, sprayed concreting, void stowing, fissure treatment works, borehole decommissioning and treatment works. The Special Projects team is also the UK's premier provider of bespoke answers for civil engineering problems: if a solution doesn't exist, our professionals create one. 

In addition to our more specialised skills we can also provide basic services such as earthworks, groundworks and many types of drainage.

Our Special Projects team provides a service to the first-rank of Britain's civil engineers. We partner firms like Multiplex-Costain, British Gypsum, Barcol, GCA, plus many small, innovative civil engineering businesses.

The Special Projects civil engineering professionals continue to work successfully with United Utilities, Network Rail, and Transport for London. Time and time again our engineers have shown we have the capability to work sensitively in conservation areas, safely and considerately around residential areas whilst always delivering on time and on budget. When you need excellence in civil engineering, our Special Project team delivers.
