Leeds civil and engineering specialists RWO Associates has won a raft of new house building projects after it recently opened in the city.

The Park Place based firm, which provides locally based technical engineering services and expertise, has won an undisclosed six-figure worth of work in the last three months.

This includes pre-planning drainage and flood risk work, detailed highways and drainage design services and earthworks analysis for over 1,700 new residential properties being built by Persimmon Homes, Gleeson Homes, Barratt Homes, Harron Homes and Mulgrave Property Group across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

The office is also providing structural engineering services and technical expertise, which includes sub-structure and super-structure design, for these developments, supporting further the local requirements of national developers.
