Our civil engineering teams provide a comprehensive design and project management service to plan, design and procure complex engineering works involving site clearance, earthworks, remediation and adopted development infrastructure. Our portfolio also includes river and coastal works, bridges, highway structures and retaining walls.
Orchard Rise, Touchstone Lane, Chard is an exclusive development of 15 luxury, energy efficient homes with sizeable gardens on a steeply sloping greenfield site. Jubb provided full Civil Engineering services for the site, including ground modelling and the drainage system with a combination of permeable paving and oversized pipes for surface water attenuation. Jubb provided substructure and retaining wall designs.
Opened in June 2019, Meadow Café is a purpose-built eatery in Central Park Plymouth with a wildflower roof, a large amount of glazing and canopy-covered external seating. The Café is the flagship project of the overall Central Park improvement works. The building is curved on plan and constructed in timber and masonry with exposed bolted connections to the main structural timber members. The lintels to the curved walls were carefully detailed to use standard sections where possible with cut plate forming the curves rather than the more expensive option of bending the entire section.
Jubb provided the Civil Engineering services including external levels & finishes and the drainage system. Due to the use of a wildflower roof, no further flow control or surface water attenuation systems were required by the Lead Local Flood Authority or South West Water.
Jubb provided Structural and Civil Engineering services to Plymouth City Council during the initial designs and where novated to the Design and Build Contractor for the final design.
Jubb helped drive the Woodgate Road scheme from consultation through to securing planning permission working closely with our client and the Local Authority (Cornwall County Council) in order to provide a scheme that was acceptable both for adoption and to the end client/user. This included providing connectivity to the local area and dealing successfully with various site constraints. Some of which included site sensitive tree species with Tree Preservation Orders, sympathetic lighting design across the site and boundaries to maintain bat corridors and maintain where possible existing hedge lines across the site to minimise ecological impact. Following planning approval Jubb were employed to provide civil and structural design on a “Design & Build” contract to take the project to completion. The Woodgate Road development consists of 40 mixed open market and social housing dwellings in the market town of Liskeard. Whilst a relatively small development, the project had its share of civil and structural problems to overcome. Due to existing topography it was essential to try and balance cut & fill to reduce cart away costs and provide earth stabilisation solutions to the bottom boundary and pump station.
Jubb provided full civils design along with flood risk assessments, ground investigation reports and a travel plan in support of the Planning Application.
Jubb supported Gallagher Estates in developing a 24Ha greenfield site at Land South of Gallows Hill. The development consisted of 450 residential units to be served by a primary spine road, SuDS features and two new signal controlled junctions. Both new junctions involve partial dualling of Gallows Hill and Europa Way (A452). Jubb worked with Gallagher Estates to establish earthworks, infrastructure and drainage strategies for the site and identified how to overcome challenging topography to provide surface water attenuation for the site whilst also conforming to public open space requirements.
Jubb produced detailed design of the primary spine road and associated infrastructure through the development to meet the local authority and water authority’s adoption requirements. The steep nature of the site resulted in significant re-modelling of earthworks in lower lying areas to accommodate a detention basin adopted as public open space. This involved diverting the Tach Brook Tributary which was detailed by Jubb to gain approval from the local authority.
Jubb were appointed to provide specialist land remediation advice along with detailed civil and structural engineering input for a new 250 unit residential site in Sittingbourne. Historically, parts of the site were a former gas works with the remainder forming a precast yard for Milton Pipe. Consequently, the land was underlain by significant ground contamination and required extensive remediation of in situ soils and ground water plus residual risk management measures to dwellings and garden spaces. The engineering challenges of the scheme were complex, and Jubb was instrumental in developing cost effective solutions to the constraints posed by contamination, difficult topography, boundary constraints and spatial constraints.

Jubb are supporting Persimmon with the development of the 141Ha site on the former Grove Airfield. Jubb are providing support on the main infrastructure and SUDS drainage solutions, global earthworks strategy and providing parcel support for the detailed civil engineering design.
The primary infrastructure for highways has been designed in detail and is being taken through technical approval with Oxfordshire County Council, with the SUDS drainage systems being offered for approval through the Vale of White Horse Lead Local Flood Authority through the planning process. Surface and Foul drainage is being offered under Section 104 for adoption by Thames Water and Jubb are liaising closely with Thames on a bespoke agreement to provide a Strategic Sewer and Pumping Station for the area of Grove as a whole, which will be situated within the development.
The SUDS strategy allows for the phased approach to the formation of swales and ponds, whilst maintaining flows from the remaining undeveloped areas during the build. Multiple control features have been developed in order to maximise the storage within the swales and ponds in order to achieve a 32% reduction in the greenfield discharge rates, to improve downstream flooding.
As parcels are brought forward for development, the drainage and earthworks strategies are further refined to ensure the most efficient solutions are identified.
Jubb supported Gallagher Estates with this 66Ha greenfield site for ‘disposal for residential’ development. Jubb worked alongside Gallagher Estates to establish site wide strategies for earthworks, drainage and infrastructure providing holistic models to inform viability and potential phasing.
The primary infrastructure for highways and drainage was designed in detail and taken through to technical approval with Warwickshire County Council and Severn Trent Water. The highway infrastructure included a new primary estate road and bus route through the site with several new junctions to the existing highway network as well as off-site alterations.
The surface water drainage strategy for the site was designed to provide flexibility in the phasing of the site development. Attenuation ponds were designed to meet the local council’s requirements for adoption and to make use of the existing fishing ponds while tying in with the proposed landscape strategy.
This greenfield site was developed on behalf of M Baker Group to provide serviced parcels of land for mixed use development including a residential estate, a care home and a public house. Jubb were engaged at an early stage to provide initial designs to support an outline planning application for the site.
An enabling works package was then designed and delivered by Jubb which included off site highway and junction improvements along with primary on site infrastructure. Traffic signals improvements and services diversion and supply contracts were placed in parallel with the construction contract, to be programmed by the Contractor.
The works were procured via a single stage tender process using the NEC Option A Priced Contract with Activity Schedule prepared and administered throughout the build by Jubb. Client support was provided to assist with parcel disposal and liaison with tenant’s construction teams.
Newbury Racecourse is a site of approximately 100 acres, located 1km east of Newbury Town Centre, Berkshire and is being redeveloped by both Newbury Racecourse Plc and David Wilson Homes.

Jubb were commissioned to deliver the detailed design of the project and support during the construction phase of the works.
Jubb have been appointed by Linden Homes to design a soil nail reinforcing cutting, to open up the development platform of a housing development in the centre of Radstock, Somerset.
Existing site investigations had revealed historic slope instability and a number of springs that required a careful, staged design approach.
Jubb used specialist software to carry out slope stability analysis at each stage of the proposed construction. Linden’s specialist contractor worked closely with Jubb during the detailed design stage and this resulted in a very high standard of workmanship.
The existing hill slope angle of around 20 degrees was cut into at a grade of 1:1.5 which optimised the requirements of a green permanent facing and development footprint. The cutting face was finished with a seeded topsoil placed into a cellular geogrid attached to high-tensile ‘Tecco’ mesh facing manufactured by Geobrugg of Switzerland.
Counterfort drains were specified below face drains and the cellular geogrid used to provide a stable counterfort style drainage blanket.
The end result was a high-quality cutting profile with the soil nails and meshing system hidden from sight.
