We’re delighted to announce that Geotechnics Limited has gained perfect scores across 7 of 8 categories in our Achilles UVDB Verify B2 Audit.

The independent audit took place over two days, including a review on-site at one of our North West office’s ground investigations. Our Achilles verification demonstrates our commitment to quality across the company, and stands alongside our similar accreditations from Constructionline, RISQS and UKAS.

The Achilles verification is particularly geared towards the utilities sector, where we have worked on a number of major ground investigations. Our recent ground investigations for utilities include our work in Lincolnshire for Triton Knoll, which will be Europe’s largest offshore wind farm.

We also have a longstanding relationship with United Utilities, with whom we have worked on the Davyhulme Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greater Manchester. Davyhulme, which has been named “the most innovative green energy scheme in the world”, was recently nominated for Geoenvironmental Project of the Year at the 2018 GE Awards.

John Booth, Geotechnics' Managing Director, said "We have worked hard to develop comprehensive management systems which help us to deliver quality and safety across all our projects. We are particularly pleased by our scores on site, which clearly demonstrate our commitment to training, and which reflect the professionalism and capabilities of our staff.”
