Opus professionals are responsible for the design, construction and ongoing management of new and existing pavements in all the countries in which we operate.
Pavements for heavy duty applications (ports, industrial facilities and airports), for heavily trafficked highways, for sealed and unsealed urban and rural roads of all types, and for roads, car parks and facilities servicing both public and private land feature regularly in our project work. We employ state of the art pavement design and modelling techniques, when these are appropriate, in our work.
Opus staff are routinely involved in the project solutions they prepare for their clients who regularly benefit from the findings of our ongoing research work into pavement design and materials. Our people continue to be acknowledged as industry leaders in many aspects of pavement engineering, including the cost effective use of “local” pavement materials, the design and construction of pavements on low strength ground, and the ongoing development of innovative pavement surfacing options employing both asphalt and concrete bound layers.
Our pavement design and construction solutions can be tailored to meet the often varying demands of the local environment, structural loading and cost effectiveness. Opus pavement designers are encouraged to participate in the construction of “their” pavements during their professional career. We believe that effective pavement design solutions also deliver practical construction solutions.
