“As a partner in Bardills Garden Centre, I would like to compliment you on your ability to carry out the roadworks on Bardills Roundabout with such professionalism. The men are always tidy and very courteous, holding doors open, leaving helmets outside the coffee shop, helping customers to negotiate the island. They are a fine gang and you must be very proud of them.”. Pam Sisson, Bardills Roses and Garden Centre
Meticulous planning is key to our success in delivering structural repairs, strengthening schemes, replacements and new structures from footbridges, to multi-storey car parks and complex under-bridges. Through a seamless integration with our designers and supply partners we will develop solutions that are tailored to your specific needs and sensitive to the needs of your stakeholders.
Structures that benefit the Community
We recognise that attention to detail is of paramount importance in developing a solution that provides a better outcome for you and your customers. Our learning has been gained from a portfolio of projects and includes the design, refurbishment, strengthening and new construction of; road, rail, foot, and cycle bridges over roads, railways, rivers and canals. Our car parking solutions include surface car parks, deck-over and multi-storey car park structures, and park and ride schemes.
From the outset we will establish a collaborative team that will work with you to develop a bespoke solution that takes full account of the surrounding environment and is designed with buildability and construction safety at the fore.
“We are writing to offer our sincerest thanks for opening the bridge for us and helping to make our wedding day such a magical experience. We have used the new bridge on many occasions since its opening and would like to congratulate everyone involved in its design and construction. Everyone we know has been delighted and hugely impressed with the project and we truly feel that it is a fantastic addition to the community, both in form and function. For us, though, it will always be our ‘wedding bridge’ and we will be forever grateful to Osborne for affording us this legacy.” Bob and Vanessa McCulloch.
Technology / Information
The delivery of any project on or around the live operational highway requires an absolute respect for the unique environment that is presented. This respect is never more evident than in our multi-disciplinary teams that will work openly with you in delivering communications systems to improve network efficiencies and road space management.
Information Systems to promote Safer Driving
Whether on motorways or trunk roads, in an urban or rural setting, ensuring journey time reliability and road-user satisfaction are embedded in our approach to developing the right end-user technology systems to improve network efficiencies and promote safer driving.
Our technology and information experience includes the design, fabrication and installation of matrix signs, CCTV cameras and masts, steel super-span gantries, emergency telephones, MIDAS (Motorway Incident Detection & Automatic Signalling) loops, Advanced directional signs (ADS), Electrical cabinet sites; along with associated civils works such as cross-carriageway ducts, carriageway, retaining wall structures, embankment access steps and handrails, Safety fencing, and power network.
We have a comprehensive knowledge and experience of facilitating the high-speed traffic management required to deliver these schemes. Together with early contractor involvement, innovative methods and our customised local liaison techniques, we agree mitigation and working protocols to ensure a seamless transition from construction to user operation.
