Poor understanding of ground conditions can lead to unforeseen problems and expensive project delays. By investing in sound geotechnical information and expertise, you can avoid these costly delays and project overruns.
RSK’s experienced and highly qualified geotechnical team is practised at identifying issues at an early stage and reacting quickly to deliver practical, robust and value-engineered ground investigation and design solutions tailored to the project requirements.
We routinely undertake desk-based hazard/option appraisals, specification and management of ground investigations, ground engineering design and specification, construction monitoring and supervision for a wide range of projects both in the UK and internationally. We also provide expert witness advice on geotechnical problems.
As a fully integrated multidisciplinary consultancy, we also work closely with our geoenvironmental, site investigation, geophysical, structural engineering, and materials testing teams, providing our engineers with a background in a range of projects.
