Teesside based civil engineering company, Lynas Engineers, has completed a series of projects in quick succession for a leading sustainable transport planner resulting in the two companies forming a strategic partnership.
The young engineering company – which was formed only two years ago – recently, and successfully, completed a number of projects for TPS Transport Consultants. This included delivering vehicle tracking and junction design services for the Wakefield business. The projects awarded varied in size, value, requirements and time frames.
Having invested in state-of-the-art software used to test out designs in a real-world simulation – which saw the young company receive a Digital Technology award earlier this year at the North East Business Awards – we were able to assist in delivering key contracts for TPS.
Speaking about the series of project wins with TPS, Rob Lynas, Managing Director at Lynas Engineers said: “We’ve been working closely with TPS over the past several months and during that time our business relationship has grown significantly and we have now formed a strategic partnership that will be mutually beneficial for both businesses.
“The company will provide us with transport planning assistance and safety audits as and when required, and, in turn, we will provide TPS with expertise in our field. Collaborative working is key to help young companies like ours grow and, as such, we believe this partnership will play a pivotal role in our future plans.”
Lynas Engineers believes its innovative use of technology that has been pivotal in securing a high volume of contracts of this nature. The company used AutoTrack, an AutoCAD add-on, to check the maneuverability of vehicles around proposed residential estates and junctions. As well as vehicle tracking for TPS, Lynas Engineers recently completed other project work such as providing advice on junction design, optioneering, visibility splays and white lining where appropriate. Lynas Engineers provide feedback and a creative solution for the proposed work.
Established in 2000, TPS support a variety of clients from across the UK in securing planning permissions, through the provision of transport planning advice and solutions. Projects range from single dwelling developments, through to the delivery of strategic new business parks and residential settlements. Complementing traditional transport planning techniques, TPS specialise in the delivery of sustainable transport focused solutions aimed at minimising the impact of development upon the local environment and highway network.
John Hacker, Managing Director at TPS, said: “Working with Lynas Engineers has been a big plus for our business. We reply upon the delivery of high quality yet cost-effective services in what is often a demanding sector to work. Rob and his team have at all times provided a speedy service, as well as being easy and enjoyable to work alongside”.

Successfully using design prowess and innovative technology to provide clients with engineering excellence since establishment in 2016 has led to the business securing a prestigious award as well as many local projects.
