At FRITH:BLAKE Consulting Limited we understand the pitfalls that are often associated with the delivery of highways and sustainable drainage and that through a combination of efficient design and a pragmatic approach to dealing with statutory authorities we can maximise land value and minimise delays. 

Our approach has developed though the delivery of a wide range of projects from simple small housing estates through to strategic sites of over 1,000 dwellings.   These skills have matured during our roles at previous companies, namely Dominic's role as Technical Manager at a National House Builder and Jon's role leading a team of Civil and Pre-Planning Engineers at Bidwells. 

We can accommodate civil engineering design and pre-planning advice on a range of projects. We coordinate with our specialist consultants to assist in providing a comprehensive range of services to help Clients get best value for their land as well as offering efficient designs for highways and sustainable drainage.
