Waterman are specialists in the successful development of industrial sites, particularly brownfield areas and those in need of ground improvement or with environmental considerations, such as bio-remediation and flood risk assessments.

Designing a bespoke site infrastructure
Our expert teams have significant experience in designing for railways, roads, ports and harbours, as well as the aviation and utilities sectors, and can assist with optimal infrastructure planning. Our design and reporting expertise includes bespoke and adaptable manufacturing and processing facility design, spanning mechanical and electrical services, process drainage, industrial ground and suspended floors, push walls, overhead high-level runway gantry cranes, portal cranes and manipulators.

We strive to innovate for the environmental impact of our developments, and focus the structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering design from concept to delivery and aftercare on meeting the important demands of both efficiency and sustainability.

Accounting for all potential costs
We will advise on any possible exceptional costs of your site selection, including issues relating to water, power and gas, communications, air quality and noise, ecology, transport and travel and sustainable drainage and BREEAM targeting.

An organic, integrated strategy
The industrial and logistics sector is in a state of flux. Unprecedented sector and skill migration, new forms of manufacturing and product lifecycle management accommodation demand a novel collaborative approach to the requirements of clients and end-users. Waterman is at the forefront of supporting Advanced Manufacturers – promoting research and development into Factories of the Future, with future-oriented facilities and logistics – to achieve the right environment for growth and advancement.

Our services will evolve to suit your procurement needs, and to adapt to the mechanical, electrical, civil and structural engineering construction concept, including Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA). We benchmark our industrial clients’ activities to the NASA Technology Readiness scales and the requirements of the Council for Protection of National Infrastructure in order to understand and cater for the varying needs and demands of production, development and logistics.

All with no impact on beauty
Our architectural structural engineering capabilities compliment the industrial design process and provide the industrial sector with a front of house showcase attractive to colleagues, clients and customers.
