Leapmoor have acted as design coordinator and engineering designer in various sectors, supporting client organisations to fulfil their project needs.  These challenging roles requires knowledge, experience and drive to meet the project outcomes. By prioritising the design challenges that each site presents, and undertaking gap analysis, we can advise clients and their team of where to invest efforts to ensure the project progresses. At every stage of the process, the costs are reviewed to take account of changes in scope and design.


During all areas of design, Leapmoor work as a member of your team in a professional and transparent way to ensure you get the most out of your project.  To produce a coordinated and coherent design, we believe it is important to build trust between all parties. We have professionally qualified consultants who are highly skilled at forward planning, motivating large teams and who have an in-depth knowledge of construction projects. Projects have been successfully delivered by our consultants in the infrastructure, energy, regeneration and ports and harbours sectors.


Our strength is our ability to challenge design decisions and to identify and mitigate project risks.


Leapmoor have the experience to ensure that the appropriate assessments are undertaken to inform feasibility and investment decisions, as well as to create a confident basis for the next stage. We provide concept design directly to the client or coordinate the feasibility study to ensure the outputs are robust and sufficiently developed.

  • Early identification of any issues, project drivers and risks, and map out the next steps needed to allow informed decision making. 

  • Feasibility assessments focusing on the main project risks, taking into account the scope of works and site specific considerations.  

  • Delivering safe, robust and sufficiently developed designs to meet the client's requirements and to support planning applications, funding review and other project approvals. 

  • Most importantly, delivering concept designs that can be competitively priced and progressed to design and/or build.
