Congratulations to CGL’s Dr David Giles on being promoted to Technical Director.  David joined CGL in 2019 to develop our digital analysis capabilities.  His expertise and 30+ years of experience in engineering geology have provided valuable cost-saving ground risk assessments for our clients, often saving time and money on projects. David joined us from the University of Portsmouth, where he built up both a national and international reputation in Engineering Geology. His wealth of experience and published research on geological and geotechnical hazards, glaciated and periglacial terrains, risk analysis and assessment on various ground-based challenges that include landslides, slope instability, and contaminated land.

David will continue to be a significant contributor to CGL’s growing CPD provision, offering Breakfast Briefings and Technical CPD talks to showcase how CGL can provide considerable time and cost savings.
