Civil Engineering encapsulates the design and construction of private and public driveways.

Effective driveway planning and design

Before works begin, it is important for there to be a clear design so that the correct planning permission (if necessary), materials and machinery can be sourced.

For example, it is important to know whether you will require dropped kerbs or whether you want your driveway to be paved or tarmacked. A civil engineering team will have the experience and knowledge in paving driveways, installing an asphalt, tarmac, resin driveway or another bound surface to offer helpful suggestions and advice.

Types of driveways

Your civil engineering team will need to know what type of driveway you are expecting so that the correct materials and machinery can be sourced. Typical driveways include resin bound driveways, tarmac or block paving.

Driveway costs

The cost of installing a new driveway is dependant on the materials chosen. The most cost-effective option in terms of material is asphalt or standard tarmac (not coloured tarmac), with block paving and resin-bound paving materials being more expensive.

When choosing a material, whether that is resin bonded driveway, paving slabs or another material it is important to consider the weight of vehicles that will be using the space as well as the life-span projection of the driveway. Your civil engineering team will be able to offer the best advice based on your personal circumstances.

Will the value of your property be impacted?

Depending on a variety of factors, creating additional parking space (both private and public) can influence the value of your property and it is essential to be aware of this factor when considering a new driveway.

Is planning permission required?

Planning permission is necessary when creating some driveways. If access to a road will be altered or if the development is within an area of archaeological interest then permission will be legally required.

I employed Lee and his team to take on a large house building project. From start to finish the team were excellent. Quality workmanship, advice and efficiency led to the project being completed on time and the house selling almost instantly. Would have no problem recommending L Miles Building Services and have already taken them on for my next project.
