COVID – 19 Working Arrangements 26th March 2020

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday night all CGL staff are home office working using our established IT infrastructure.  Staff will be contactable through our normal phone systems, emails and so on, in the usual way.  Following government requirements on us all to limit non-essential travel, we are currently only working on a very limited number of sites which are identified to us to be essential work by clients where they have to maintain progress.

We intend to continue with as near “normal” working to deliver ground solutions, as these exceptional circumstances permit.

Leadership in Ground Engineering

“We can help you to manage risks, forecast and contain costs, or turn marginally viable proposals into profitable opportunities.”

CGL is the UK’s biggest independent specialist geotechnical and geoenvironmental consultancy, delivering leading edge services for a wide range of clients. We provide advice and design solutions on a broad range of ground-related issues, working directly with site developers or their design and construction teams.

Our strengths are our core engineering knowledge and broad perspective incorporating both geotechnical and geoenvironmental expertise. Our deep understanding of ground and contaminant behaviour means we can give you cost effective advice on complex site conditions. We can provide value engineered solutions for difficult sites that often turn marginally viable developments into profitable opportunities.
