About Us

Moreland was founded in 2016 to give civil engineering firms access to independent, proactive and experienced engineers to complete Cat iii checks for temporary works design across the construction and demolition industry. Our mission is to deliver the support and expertise contractors need to design, review and implement effective temporary works design within construction and demolition projects. This is achieved by giving construction contractors access to a specialised resource to review temporary works designs and complete Cat iii checks in an area where traditional consultancies may not have sufficient competency or available resources to meet high standards and tight deadlines. Based in Chelmsford the company is available to complete projects across the UK and internationally if required.
