Jean Lefebvre (UK), a specialist in pavement engineering and asset management, has officially opened its new technical centre in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire.
The new facility has been equipped with a larger and more comprehensively equipped laboratory than at its previous site in Warrington, allowing the consultancy to add more extensive research and product development to the portfolio of services it already offers clients.
Scott Wardrop, Eurovia UK chief executive, said: “I’ve no doubt that the new technical centre will enable the Jean Lefebvre (UK) technical consultancy – supported by its international research centre in Bordeaux – to deliver a complete and high standard of technical service to clients up and down the country for years to come.”
David Gibby, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) president, said: “It is no secret that in order to thrive, the highways and transportation industry must focus on innovation, research and development. It is great news that the new Jean Lefebvre technical centre has been equipped to aid innovation in the industry and I have no doubt it will be welcomed by many of our members.”
Jonathan Core, Jean Lefebvre (UK) divisional manager, added: “With the support of Eurovia SAS in France, the vision to have strong technical support facilities with research and development capabilities in the UK has now been realised. The new technical centre complements our pavement engineering and asset management capabilities and I look forward to welcoming both existing and new clients here in the near future.”
