Geotechnical

Stable mine workings, pit slopes and tunnels, solid foundations: whether it's a mine development, a tunnel, a multi-storey building or a road cutting, you don't need to risk costly surprises from unforeseen instability, settlement or seismic hazards. Our geotech professionals give you the right foundation for a profitable project.

Providing you with a clear, comprehensive set of foundation design options and their time-related risks is a cornerstone of our engineering services.
