The developer of a small residential scheme in Ash, Surrey, realised that there was no obvious means to drain surface water from the site. Motion was contracted to investigate the options and, subsequently, carry out the detailed design of the system.
A new Associate Director has joined the growing number of ambitious engineering experts at Motion. Jason Morgans is the latest recruit to the company’s infrastructure design services, taking the collective experience of the team to more than 250 years.
