Civil Engineering

Offering bespoke, client focussed solutions Pinnacle have built up a bank of civil engineering experience and expertise within the petrochemical and major gas terminal environments.

Development infrastructure

Pinnacle have extensive experience designing and detailing site infrastructure works comprising levels and drainage, retaining walls and pavement designs. Our skilled and highly competent team of engineers and detailers prepare reinforced concrete drawings and details together with bar bending schedules.

Utilising both 2 dimensional CAD and 3 dimensional modelling software, Pinnacle can provide a greater understanding of the parametric relationships between disciplines, preventing co-ordination issues during the construction phase.

Our philosophy on all sites is to achieve ‘Zero to Landfill’. Therefore, careful consideration of site levels, construction make ups and quantifying the volumes of materials being moved on site is the key driver to delivering a cost effective groundworks package. We have the skills and expertise to model sites utilising Autodesk 3D Civils software, enabling road pavement and slab designs to be tailored, using alternative methods of construction, to suit each particular site condition.

Drainage systems

Pinnacle have the expertise to develop and design a variety of drainage systems to meet current best practice and legislative requirements covering:

  • Scheme concept and master planning advice, including the incorporation of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) into developments
  • Securing agreements with local authorities and statutory bodies
  • Support for Planning Applications, including Flood Risk Assessments and drainage strategy reports
  • Detailed design to Building Regulations Part H, Sewers for Adoption and CIRIA guidance
  • Designs to achieve relevant elements of ECOHomes and BREEAM assessments

Our team can also advise on alterations to existing drainage and sewer systems, including arranging surveys of existing pipework to confirm current regimes, highlighting any possible site constraints.

Pinnacle have worked extensively with water authorities throughout the country to secure cost-effective diversions of existing sewer systems opening up developments that would otherwise be heavily constrained by no-build zones from existing sewer easements.
