Alex Taylor

Senior Geotechnical Engineer
[email protected]

After gaining a degree in physical geography and geology from Plymouth University, Alex spent a year completing his Masters degree in Engineering Geology at University of Portsmouth, before joining us in 2012. He has worked on a range of geotechnical investigations across London and the Home Counties and has been involved with the validation of remediation of a number of contaminated sites, including the ongoing remediation of a contaminated service station in Fleet.

He has an interest in dealing with complex geotechnical problems, in particular with regard to predicting ground movements associated with the excavation and construction of deep basements and has carried out a number of complex ground movement analyses on projects within London, including estimating the movement of three Thames Water sewers arising from a basement excavation in Hackney. He has also been involved with a number of schemes involving ground improvement techniques including the redevelopment of a former brick yard in Bedford and a proposed Sky Trail High Ropes Course on the slope of a 7 m high embankment.
