Based at Hertfordshire County Council's (HCC) offices in Hertford, Opus, with its joint venture partner Arup, work alongside HCC as the 'Whole Client Service' delivering the highway service for Hertfordshire. This means that staff from all organisations work together in joint teams to deliver a wholly integrated service.

HCC benefits from Opus' approach to highway management. This blends a wealth of knowledge and experience in asset management with best practice highway engineering to deliver affordable, safe and innovative design solutions that meet the needs of the people of Hertfordshire.

We deliver a variety of highway management, asset management and engineering design services for Hertfordshire, including:

  • Strategic asset management;
  • Design of highway improvements;
  • Routine inspection and improvement of highway structures;
  • Construction management and supervision;
  • Cross asset forward works planning;
  • Strategic transport planning, modelling, and management of developer works;
