Our consultancy service covers all aspects of the development process, including foundation design and analysis, particularly soil-structure interaction problems, slope stability, earthworks control, and basement impact assessments.
We are often asked by our clients to provide a technical review and site characterisation service where work has previously been carried out on a site by others. Our ability to rapidly identify the critical issues associated with a proposed development and to recommend realistic and properly costed solutions allows our clients to quickly make decisions on site acquisitions and development viability.
Our consultancy service is often part of an ongoing process that commences with the ground investigation and reflects the increasingly detailed design information that becomes available as a project develops. Thus, as part of our consultancy role we may carry out further or more specialised investigations to further assess particular issues, such as slope stability, foundation movements or assessment of the use of on-site material for use as engineered fill.
Our expertise is supported by our database of over 7000 ground investigations, which often means we are able to advise on likely ground conditions and foundation problems on the basis of experience of nearby sites. We are always happy to use our database and wide-ranging experience to provide preliminary site assessments in advance of a commission, which many of our clients find invaluable when bidding for work.
In addition to our own experience – our Directors have a combined experience of some 100 years – we also have extensive contacts within the ground engineering industry. This gives us the ability to advise our clients on a wide range of foundation engineering issues, for example relating to access requirements for low headroom piling rigs, maximum depths attainable for sheet piling, likely depth of treatment with new dynamic compaction techniques and so on.
We are well known to many of the main infrastructure asset holders, including London Underground, Transport for London, Network Rail and Thames Water and have successfully carried out independent Category 3 checks regarding the potential effects of proposed developments on their respective infrastructure.Contact Us
