This year, RSK is ranked the second UK geotechnics business based on staff numbers, and the second UK geotechnical consultant. RSK also came in eleventh for UK geotechnical company by turnover, joining RSK companies Structural Soils, Ian Farmer Associates and Central Alliance in the top rankings.
The annual GSF survey gathers information on company turnover, staff figures, acquisitions and future projections, and uses this data to establish the current and future condition of the UK’s geotechnical market.
RSK director of geosciences and engineering George Tuckwell has also featured in the GSF analysis report, ‘Holding Stable’, written by Ground Engineering editor Claire Smith. Discussing the number of mergers and acquisitions in the UK geotechnical industry in the last 12 months, and RSK’s growth during this time, George explains that changes can improve the market.
“For RSK, it has consolidated a substantial internal supply chain and provided multiple offerings and, therefore, entry points into the market,” says George. “We are also capturing a greater part of the market share to enable control over supply and quality.”
“RSK’s ability to consult on and deliver geotechnical solutions is now unrivalled in the UK,” George comments. “We have the biggest ground investigation resource in the country, and this unrivalled capability is something we can really shout about.”
