Ground Engineering

Feasibility

We provide geotechnical desk study appraisals to assess project feasibility, which can include reviews of historical and geological information, mining records and aerial photography. Assessments also include the design, specification and supervision of site investigations, laboratory testing including physical and chemical testing, and factual and interpretative reporting where required.

Intrusive Investigation

We design and deliver geotechnical investigations, technical specifications, site supervision of earthworks and other geotechnical processes during construction. Our skills and expertise extend across the full range of geotechnical services and we understand the interaction of the geotechnical aspects of a scheme with other contributory issues, such as environment and planning.

Detail Geotechnical Engineering Design

We have strong geotechnical design experience and provide advice as part of the site assessment regarding foundation options and design solutions, retaining measures, ground improvement methods and stabilisation measures for earthworks, natural slopes and other structures.

Pavement and Drainage Design

We provide advice regarding pavement design and drainage systems as part of the site assessment and offer a comprehensive range of geotechnical engineering services following the requirements of the NHBC, Building Regulations and Eurocode 7 and undertake in situ testing in order to determine appropriate design parameters.

Value Engineering

We offer Value Engineering at planning, design and construction phases. Practical and cost effective problem solving is at the core of our values and as a consequence we provide innovative, practical and cost effective solutions to sensitive issues.
