Civil Engineering

Propeller Studios has successfully supported many civil engineering contractors to enable them to grow their business. We have helped a range of high-profile clients secure infrastucture and utilities contracts in the rail, highways, aviation and water sectors.

The UK’s civil engineering market continues to go through a major transition, as there has been a shift to green and sustainable construction in recent years. Civil engineering contractors also seek to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the digital economy.

There has never been a better time to bid for tendered work. It is essential to have a robust bid strategy that ensures you put your energy into the right bids and manage the bid process effectively.  It results in well structured, well presented, compelling and compliant tenders. Your prospect will have no doubt that your company represents the best value for money and will deliver their project on time, on budget and to the best quality.

Civil Engineering Company, Civil Engineering

If, like many civil engineering companies, you do not have the in-house expertise to manage and prepare quality bid submissions, the experienced team at Propeller can help.

Our bid consultant professionals are experienced in writing compelling, compliant, cost-efficient, client focused tenders ranging from minor works frameworks through to major infrastructure projects, such as reservoir and water treatment works. We are experts in evaluating and writing about risk and opportunity, health and safety, quality, sustainability, BIM and clearly describing the added value that your bid represents.

Our experience extends from transportation to complex infrastructure projects including highways, rail, reservoir and water treatment plants and super & sub structure works.  Working with our civil engineering clients we have secured several Network Rail and Transport for London contracts, a minor works framework for the Manchester Airport Group, utilities and infrastructure contracts for Severn Trent Water and Anglian Water and the Hampshire County Council civil engineering Framework.
