Software and Instrumentation Development
We have accompanied software developers and instrumentation companies in developing new methods of measuring and using data to give better outcomes in gas risk assessment and sustainable drainage design. Examples include:
- Working with an instrumentation company to develop continuous borehole flow rate monitoring for gas risk assessment
- Working with a software developer on applying data science techniques to the analysis of gas monitoring data
- Working with meteorological company and others to develop smart combined rainwater harvesting and stormwater attenuation systems
Innovation in design
We are not afraid to use new approaches for the assessment, design and construction relating to contaminated land and drainage. We have a proven track record for helping clients reduce cost and win projects with our innovative approach. Many companies put claim to be innovators; however, we genuinely are as proven by our industry award achievements. We are comfortable that with our comprehensive engineering understanding we can challenge the norm and achieve outstanding results.
Working with a leading remediation contractor to successfully deliver the UKs first landfill reclamation project requiring excavation, treatment and re-use of most the site materials to create a site suitable for use as a housing development.
London Olympics – Temporary Equestrian Facilities – Sustainable Design, Construction, Demounting and Reuse.
The design remit for this prestigious project was complex and very demanding due to the temporary nature of the development and the unique constraints associated with the Royal Park’s heritage and environmental setting – combined with exacting international equestrian eventing performance requirements of the surfacing and construction tolerances. This required the construction of temporary platform structures comprising a combination of either steel/timber composites (designed by others) or lightweight high strength interlocking geocellular plastic elements. EPG was responsible for the design of all lightweight structures and surface water management for all platforms, including water harvesting to be re-used for the environmental conditioning of the overlying equestrian footings systems
