Key Markets


Whatever the environment, our expertise and experience can provide a cost effective ground investigation for your project.

With over 55 years’ experience in ground investigation there are few markets for which we haven’t undertaken work, although we always welcome a challenge! In addition to the industry sectors identified to the right, we regularly provide ground investigation services to local authorities, central government, housing developers and associations, industrial and commercial developments, education and hospital trusts, the MOD and more.

Many of the markets we operate in require specific competencies together with health and safety certification. We understand that your safety record is paramount. So is ours. That’s why our staff have First Aid, CSCS, NVQ, HSG47 and IOSH accreditation and as a Company we are accredited to OHSAS 18001, CHAS, SafeContractor and ConstructionLine.

We are the UK’s largest privately owned ground investigation contractor with a 180 strong team and 29 technologically advanced rigs, including our innovative and award winning P45 & P60 slope climbing rigs. Our field crews are supported by a dedicated team of engineering geologists, geo-environmental engineers and surveyors; together with our UKAS accredited soil and rock testing laboratory, we are renowned for providing an ‘all under one roof’ ground investigation service.

We believe the best projects are based on partnerships and Early Contractor involvement so we can be with you throughout the whole process from advising you on the most cost-effective techniques and making the most of your budget, to the best approach regarding access and logistics, and accompanying you on site visits and attending contractual meetings.
