Geotechnical engineering is a critical component of many development and infrastructure projects, and we’re proud to offer our expertise in many areas, including natural hazards, historical mining risks, ground improvement, earthworks and foundation design. Our extensive experience and knowledge allow us to provide tailored solutions that are effective and efficient – no matter the scale of the project.

Our highly experienced engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers work closely with the client’s wider project team to ensure geotechnical constraints are overcome in the most sustainable and cost-effective manner. Our geotechnical expertise is supported by a suite of cutting-edge design software and access to the full range of intrusive investigation and laboratory testing methods.

Our geotechnical services include:

  • Geotechnical desk studies, pre-acquisition appraisals and due diligence support

  • Design and supervision of intrusive ground investigation and in situ testing

  • Full geotechnical reporting capabilities including provision of Eurocode 7 compliant factual and interpretative Ground Investigation Reports (GIR) and Geotechnical Design Reports (GDR), Geotechnical Risk Registers for development and infrastructure projects

  • Slope stability and retained earth investigation, assessment and design

  • Advise on the feasibility of ground improvement and applicable technologies

  • Earthworks monitoring design and verification

  • Coal mining risk assessments, intrusive mining investigations and assessment of natural geological and solution feature hazards

  • Foundation, floorslab and pavement design recommendations including allowable bearing capacity, settlement and concrete classification

" Highly recommend! Always really helpful, thinking outside the box and coming up with innovative ideas. "

Brad Hall, Ensafe

"I have worked with Geo2 over the past ten years on some technically challenging development sites and found their help and advice to be excellent. In both pre and post-acquisition stages, Geo2 are a valuable member of the project team who offer clear explanations and advice; their passion for their subject is evident. During the construction phase Geo2 are able to react quickly when needed and their expert knowledge allows decisive action to be taken mitigating cost and delay."
