Our work

We provide the full range of geotechnical design and consulting services for both temporary and permanent works. Our projects include buildings, bridges, basements and deep excavations, cut and cover tunnels and other civil engineering structures.

We add value at any project stage and have particular experience in the Design and Construct (D&C) sector.

Consultants

We work with consultants and specialist civil/structural engineering firms to broaden their technical capability, provide external independent design review and independent checking services, or simply to provide flexible resources.

Contractors

We work with contractors and their other consultants during all stages of project delivery from tender-support services, optioneering and development of value engineering alternatives, through to detailed permanent and temporary works design and on-site construction support.

Dispute resolution

Richard and Mark have both spent extended periods working on expert / dispute resolution commissions relating to claims. We work closely with legal advisors, clients and commercial teams to achieve the required objectives.
