The piece quotes RSK chief executive officer Dr Alan Ryder throughout, including his comment on one of RSK’s “key differentiators”, the network of internationally accredited laboratories that support its site investigation teams. He says, “RSK has gone against the trend and chosen to keep lab services as an integral part of the business using in-house resource. This has been a deliberate strategy and allows us to have more control over the delivery of services and execution of projects.” (You can find out more information on RSK’s laboratory testing on its services page).
Dr Ryder goes on to highlight the “‘social’ elements of RSK’s assessment capabilities” as being another string in its bow, saying, “Many of our competitors come from a traditional engineering base and the humanities and ‘softer’ side of the business is not a natural fit for them.” (Please click for more information on RSK’s social impact services).
Dr Ryder’s conclusion certainly inspires confidence: “We are only really limited by a lack of self-belief, or by boundaries we impose on ourselves. The demand in the immature market is immense, so the challenge is to find enough entrepreneurially minded individuals to drive the company forward. These markets are not for the fainthearted, but for those with determination, there are great prizes to be had.”
