Founded in Nottingham, McCann is one of the UK’s leading civil engineering firms, offering bespoke services to suit your exact requirements. Our civil engineering teams combine decades of experience in providing private and public realm clients with civil, structural, and transport engineering.
McCann has built a reputation over 50 years for creating long-lasting, outstanding public spaces; improving the very foundations of our towns and cities. We provide integrated infrastructure solutions that meet business and community needs and embody reliability, industry compliance and environmental sustainability.
Our public realm services include; paving, lighting, street furniture, drainage, landscaping, and general improvements. We also provide ongoing maintenance contracts for the public realm.
We are proud to have worked on many public realm projects, including the Skegness Foreshore Regeneration. The works focused on the Tower Esplanade, a large open space that is popular with tourists and provides a main arterial route to the beach. The project involved the removal and replacement of existing lighting columns with a new custom-designed lighting scheme that boasted s-curved columns and an LED RGB light stack. We also oversaw the removal and replacement of street furniture with new granite benches, plus associated electrical and civil engineering works.
During the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) stage for the Skegness Foreshore project, our site engineer identified a drainage issue. We responded by designing a new drainage system to alleviate local flooding, which involved the removal and re-laying of footpaths on either side of the Tower Esplanade. Due to our extensive expertise, the project was finished safely and any additional costs were reduced.
As demonstrated in the Skegness Foreshore project, our civil engineering team holds a wide range of skills and experience in the industry. We are proud to handle projects big or small with guaranteed precision and professionalism.
