Founded in 1983, Geotechnics Limited is now one of the largest independent geotechnical specialists in the UK. Operating initially from our head office in Coventry, we now have a large geotechnical laboratory and regional offices in ChesterExeter and York. We can take on projects across the UK, and deliver high quality geotechnical and geoenvironmental investigations and advisory services.

Our projects vary considerably in size and type, from phase 1 risk assessments for new houses to multi-million pound developments including high-rise buildings, brownfield regeneration sites, waterside developments, bridges, railways, highways, water pipelines, power stations and energy networks. Our clients have included private individuals, house builders, architects, consultant engineers, government departments, local authorities, main contractors and utilities operators.

Our growth and success are built on our core values. We believe that quality of information, collaboration, value engineering, project delivery and sustainability underpin everything we do.
