About

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Since it was founded, Colas has always successfully placed technical skills and know-how at the forefront of its strategy. Providing answers to the present and future needs of customers, roads users and employees in the field, that is the mission of Colas' R&D teams. Colas, a leader in transport infrastructure, is leading the way.

Global research and development

We pride ourselves that Colas clients have the best of both worlds - the innovation, methods and pioneering concepts in mobility from our global repertoire, alongside our 95-year track record in the UK infrastructure sector and the knowledge and deep-understanding of the British market that goes with our history. We are very proud of our past and work hard to serve our loyal clients.

Our end to end offer – Invest, Design, Manufacture, Construct, Maintain and Operate – allows us to design local tailored plans for clients, but also to deliver every aspect of large-scale ambitious projects. Working with supply chain partners, fellow contractors, local communities – and clients, of course – we challenge stereotypes, often transforming the options for clients, and tailor solutions to ensure excellent results.

Colas has research and development facilities in the UK, and of course access to the state of art facility in Paris. With our smart thinking approach, using innovative products and international techniques, we help clients’ visions become reality. We represent a rethink in the sector and our clients know that Colas opens the way.
