278 Consulting specialise in the planning and design of Section 278 Agreement works. We know that highway legal agreements impact upon the feasibility, timescale and cost of developments. Our understanding of the implications of these agreements is therefore key to maximising development returns.
Our expertise supports Clients by interpreting what Highway Authorities require because we have dealt with many of them previously. We manage the technical approval process of 278 Agreement works and have particular experience with the detailed design of these. With over 30 years experience in preparing technical approval submissions we guide these through highway authority approval processes as efficiently as possible.
278 Consulting utilise the experience of its Director, Simon Colbourn and an experienced supply chain to provide a comprehensive service in terms of the planning, assessment and design of 278 Agreement works.
Our key expertise is to liaise with highway authorities as early as possible to confirm and understand their requirements. We then undertake the full detailed design of the works before preparing technical approval packages for submission and approval. Our project experience ranges from small access bellmouths up to complex roundabouts and larger bypass schemes.
