“We often recommend Cole Easdon to clients for their drainage and highways related work and we often hear clients speak highly of the work they carry out. In my opinion the reason for their success is that they are competitive on price but importantly can also deliver on the quality of work they carry out and do so in a timely fashion. They are also not afraid to think outside the box and address a community’s concerns, something that has become increasingly more important under the localism banner.”
Guy Wakefield, Director, Hunter Page Planning

CEC were able to devise intelligent, yet practical solutions to a number of highway and engineering-related matters affecting the feasibility of developing the site. Their professional advice regarding possible service diversions enabled us to maximise the developable area of the site. With their technical input, we were able to work up a masterplan that best accommodates the technical issues affecting the site to create a deliverable and viable development.”
John Hill, Director – Planning Development Regeneration, Lambert Smith Hampton
