Partnerships - Capita Symonds

Providing a broad range of professional services covering the design, engineering, construction, infrastructure and property markets, Capita are one of the UK's largest multidisciplinary consultancies. Within their national structure, the Countryside and Heritage Management Service (CHMS) provides specialist input into a wide variety of access and recreation based projects. In particular, Capita have worked with Sustran's on urban fringe based multi-user networks and Natural England on a number of national trails including the Pennine Bridleway. Their work encompasses feasibility, design and implementation. In relation to the national trails this also encompasses ongoing maintenance.

As industry leaders in their respective fields, Capita and Architrail have a strong partnership, which is key to compiling thorough, seamless, professional documents covering feasibility studies, planning permission, public consultation and design projects. Working with Capita's mountain bike trail specialists James Daplyn and Katie Jackson, this partnership has proven to be a very efficient method of operation throughout our project history.


In addition to undertaking construction projects ourselves, there are certain circumstances where it is beneficial to partner with other contractors, depending on the location and scale of the project. We pride ourselves on our ability to bring out the best in skilled contractors to create trails of the highest standard.
