Creating living spaces for the future. We deliver innovative, sustainable solutions, driven by a desire to create better places in which people and communities can thrive.

We help you deliver exceptional homes in connected, sustainable, safe and accessible neighbourhoods. We continuously develop and innovate so that every design we prepare responds to the challenges of the climate emergency, whilst fulfilling our social responsibility to deliver living spaces that meet the needs of diverse communities.

We find the best engineering solutions for any project, from refurbishments, extensions, remodelling and retrofits through to new builds and new towns. Our experience spans all residential types, from affordable and keyworker housing through to luxury dwellings, retirement living, care sector, and student accommodation.

Encompassing all elements of Building Services, Structural, Civil and Environmental design, our multidiscipline capability ensures that we meet all project engineering demands. We understand that the success of a residential scheme relies upon its connectivity with existing transport and utility networks, amenities and neighbourhoods.

We continually strive to be progressive in our thinking and approach. We work with design teams to conceive solutions that respond to the changing needs of our clients, their customers and their markets, and we offer expertise that pushes the boundaries to deliver best in class developments.

Futureproofing is an essential part of our approach, and our agile design solutions embed climate resilience throughout, ensuring our developments continually adapt to the changing world. Our multidiscipline teams take a holistic approach to designing sustainable low carbon and Net Zero solutions, considering the project’s whole life carbon cycle, circular economy and operational carbon emissions. Our sustainability team works alongside our engineers to guide the design process and to set the roadmap for achieving your sustainability goals and targets.

“We’ve been thrilled with Waterman’s proactive approach to the delivery of Friary Court. This answer to slashing the carbon footprint of our development.”

Featured Project

Horizon, Jersey

Waterman’s at the heart of Jersey’s St Helier landmark residential development. This key development will deliver an exclusive collection of 280 one-, two- and three-bedroom waterside apartments and penthouses, and a new restaurant and retail quarter at the water’s edge offering 20,000 sq ft of commercial opportunities for local and national businesses. Continuing our successful relationship working with the Government of Jersey’s property development on the Esplanade Quarter site who are in JV partnership with Groupe Legendre, we are providing multidiscipline engineering services on this Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM International) designed iconic development.

Our structural and civils experts have designed the three nine-storey buildings which include a two-storey basement beneath the whole development. Constructed in an area of reclaimed land with a large tidal range and below ground water, the challenging basement level design required special consideration. Our specialists have provided design consultancy services for the contamination, hydrogeology and geotechnical aspects of the project, in addition to the design of the structure and highways on the site.

The site’s geometry also presented a challenge, with triangular buildings sitting in a fan arrangement to maximise sea views from apartments. This required careful structural design at first floor and podium level, particularly since the development had to accommodate the maximum number of parking bays, and much of the building transfers at ground floor level. Our Building Services team are providing client-side compliance monitoring services for the MEP services and lift installation, carrying out validation, technical reviews and site inspections.

Horizon is anticipated to be completed in 2023.
