Markets & Expertise / Energy and Infrastructure

Design and environmental expertise, securing consents and delivery advice for projects including transport, ports, nuclear, wind, solar, tidal and grid.

LDA Design is at the forefront of energy and infrastructure development, with extensive experience across many project types. We lead masterplanning, design and Environmental Impact Assessments and develop strategic, creative and environmentally sustainable solutions for a broad range of clients. We are focused on delivery, meeting client need, and the provision of rigorous work. We are driven by excellence and a desire to leave a positive legacy for future generations.

Through an approach that integrates operational requirements with design development, sustainability, consultation, planning and environmental expertise, we deliver project solutions that add value and reduce risk; respond positively to context, place and policy; meet regulatory obligations; minimise impact on the environment; and secure public acceptance. We regularly secure consent for projects of all sizes.

Our infrastructure clients include transport and port operators, energy developers, utility companies and local authorities. Large projects include  the world’s first tidal lagoon at Swansea , a number of offshore windfarms,  the first approved NSIP and DCO for Rookery South RRF, and  EDF’s New Nuclear investment programme including  Hinkley Point and Sizewell. Smaller projects include onshore windfarms, solar projects, rail and river corridor studies.

We have unparalleled experience across the full range of consenting procedures including DCO, HRO, Hybrid Bill, s.36 and TCPA routes.

We have established relationships with leading legal advisors and counsel that continue to inform our work and practice.
