One of the most striking engineering icons of the twenty-first century, Queensferry Crossing is the UK’s tallest bridge and the world’s longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge. Ramboll is proud to have led the Design Joint Venture (DJV), which includes Sweco and Leonhardt Andra and Partners. The DJV worked for main construction contractors Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC), a consortium of Hochtief, Dragados, American Bridge International and Morrison Construction, helping deliver the crossing and surrounding road approaches.

The Mersey Gateway project was the largest infrastructure project in the North West of England, featuring a new 1km six-lane cablestayed toll bridge over the River Mersey, and a further 1.2km of raised approaches. It is an integral part of the local Sustainable Transport Strategy and covers around 9km of road improvements and a series of major new junctions running throughout Runcorn and Widnes.

The Stratford Retaining wall forms the southern boundary between The International Quarter development and the adjacent DLR line. Ramboll collaborated with Volkerfitzpatrick to develop an alternative to the reference design which provided multiple benefits to the end client Lendlease. These included an increased plot size by enabling the wall to move closer to the railway, the reuse of the site-won material as backfill, and resulted in the creation of London’s largest Green Wall.
The 121 unit residential development in Hackney, UK, is the largest Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) project globally, using more timber than any other scheme in the world by volume. It boasts many material benefits due to its CLT construction, not least its sustainability. In total, Ramboll’s CLT experts have calculated Dalston Works' structure has approximately 50 percent less embodied carbon when compared to a traditional concrete frame. Find out more >
