We are an industry leader with experience in water conveyance, pumping stations, water treatment facilities and reservoirs. Our reputation in this technically complex area stems from a combination of civil and MEICA resources, design, project management skills and extensive self-performance capabilities.


Our award-winning projects in the wastewater sector include design, construction, operation and maintenance of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants, pipelines, storage and full turnkey solutions. We deliver schemes utilising in-house civil and MEICA resources.


Ward and Burke has undertaken numerous road and bridge construction projects on behalf of both local and national authorities. We have adapted to an increasing variety of contract forms, ranging from traditionally procured to lump sum design and build construction.


Our marine experience includes sea defence works, flood prevention, breakwaters, fish passes, causeways, harbours and maintenance projects such as fendering works.


We have carried out a number of energy and waste-to-energy projects, particularly in the UK. Our size and flexibility allows us to offer various construction options to suit client’s needs, including standalone FRC, earthworks, pipework or any combination of the above. We also provide detailed design across civil, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control, automation and process disciplines.


We have successfully completed numerous high-quality urban regeneration, streetscaping and urban environmental improvement projects over the years. Such projects necessitate intensive traffic and pedestrian management, high-quality finishes and bespoke street furniture.
