Civil engineering services


In public and private sectors, we have delivered a broad range of civil engineering projects early and within budget.

Our design and build experience offers intelligent solutions with collaborative approaches to the challenges our customers face. The earlier we can be involved will achieve the greatest benefits for your projects. Safety and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do.

Enabling and temporary works

Our in-house professionally qualified Technical Services team provides optimum solutions to the challenges each project can bring. These have included bridge slides, on-site pre-casting of bridge decks transporting into position on multi-axled transporters, piling frames, design/installation & removal - from access scaffold to heavy duty support steelwork, jacking of motorways, viaduct deck bearing remedials and replacements, hydro-demolition, welding reinforcement and structural monitoring to name a few.

Ground stabilisation

  • Ground anchors, soil nails and rock bolts
  • Gabion baskets, mattresses
  • Reinforced earth retaining walls
  • Mine and shaft infilling
  • Lime stabilisation


  • CFA, rotary bored and tripod rig
  • Pre-cast driven and stone column
  • Steel – sheet, tubular (top and bottom driven), H & I column, UBP, UC

Highways and bridges

Our considerable experience in major projects and maintenance of both highways and structures encompasses both stand-alone and framework contracts. Our knowledge of the statutory processes enables us to play a key role in supporting our clients team at public inquiries, both in their preparation and with staff acting as expert witness.

We have specialist in-house capabilities for:

  • Traffic management and are accredited for National Highways Sector Schemes 12A/B, 12C & 12D (Local Authorities roads)
  • Structural Steelwork – Register of Qualified Steelwork Contractors

Concrete Engineering

Reinforced Concrete designs to meet current standards in your sector, with on-site, NAMAS-accredited (National Accreditation of Measurement and Sampling) concrete-testing facilities where appropriate. Concrete pours using mix designs that ensure outputs are met and strengths achieved, using development trials with suppliers to add value. On-site batching for large volumes of in-situ slip-forming, pre-casting or where opportunity exists.

Airports and Airfields

With experience of taxiways, hardstandings, hangars and runway works, Interserve offer safe solutions to your challenges. T5 was subsequently built using a similar proven system to that employed by Interserve on the BA/Virgin Atlantic hangar at Heathrow Airport. For speed of delivery and enhanced safety Interserve built the hangar roof at ground level and jacked into position, early proof of our Ingenuity at Work.


From industrial framed and clad to high specification state of the art, Interserve has the experience and successful track record for the design and construction of buildings. We utilise standardisation, off-site pre-casting and modularisation where opportunity presents. Our customers may then wish to source their facilities management with Interserve.
