Design and Engineering Case Studies

In our collection of case studies below, we shine a light on the design and engineering story behind a project, exploring our full range of design services from complex 3D modelling of one-off bespoke features to driving through efficiencies in pavement design.

Our case study portfolio covers a wide range of projects and scapes, each with their own unique challenge. Each design solution is deliberately focused on reducing risk and complexity in the build and delivering overall savings in time, cost and carbon.

Battersea Power Station

A project where budget pressures posed a real threat to the scope and quality of the external works  package. The clients design team were under pressure to significantly reduce the material quality and overall costs.

Cost savings: £186,000 in build costs across Phase 1 works

Carbon savings: 76 tonnes (18%) saving

Battersea Power Station

Goldman Sachs planters

The design of a complex interlocking and overlapping granite retaining wall that includes seven planters, positioned over split levels and surrounded within 3,500m2 of public realm. The added restrictions of limited excavation depth within central London posed a considerable challenge to foundation design and buildability.

Bedford Town Centre

Although the client was satisfied with prospective designs for this crucial redevelopment, planners were eager to engage Marshalls to review outline paving proposals and give guidance on potential improvements.

Cost savings: Over £120,000 in reduced subbase material

Carbon savings: 33% reduction in high traffic areas

Time savings: 33% reduction in on-site labour time

Northern Highway Depot

Northern Highway Depot

At around 7000m2 this hard standing area for mixed vehicle types needed to be robust in its structural nature but also be delivered to programme and cost constraints which made contractor tendering a challenge.

Cost savings: Over £125,000 in reduced subbase material

Carbon savings: 52% reduction in structural build up

Time savings: 50% reduction in build programme
