Established 40 years ago

UK-wide expert presence with 100+ staff across 4 offices

Extensively accredited and certified to a high standard

80% of our staff are qualified experts in various aspects of site investigation, project management and testing

We have considerable historic experience working with the Ministry of Defence and their appointed Engineers on numerous UK sites.



We collaborate effectively with the MOD and their engineers to provide optimal solutions for their geotechnical and geoenvironmental site investigation needs.

We excel at project and site management, as demonstrated by our work at an RNAS location, where we coordinated with the MOD and the engineer to conduct a phased site investigation. This involved UXO and archaeological clearance, windowless sampling, trial pitting, DCP testing, and cable percussion boring. We also performed groundwater and gas monitoring after the fieldwork and prepared a factual report with results from our in-house geotechnical laboratory, as well as BIM compliant geotechnical and geoenvironmental data in the latest AGS data format.

With our decades of experience, we have coordinated various investigation techniques on MOD sites across the UK and provided data to inform new runways, runway extensions, pavement design, new utility supply, and building foundations and basements.


If you are looking for a reliable and experienced partner for your geotechnical engineering projects, you have come to the right place. We have a proven track record of delivering high-quality solutions for a wide range of clients and challenges.

Whether you need site investigation, slope stability analysis, foundation design, ground improvement, or any other geotechnical service, we can help you achieve your goals.
