Site Investigation forms a basic element of all our services for the built environment. As an innovative and award winning ground engineering consultancy we can draw on our extensive experience to design robust, pragmatic and cost effective solutions for site investigation that will beat your expectations.
At CGL we focus our clients’ concerns to invest time and money into one of the least visible but highly valuable elements of the construction process. We draw on our experience to offer guidance on risk reduction and what can be achieved with the knowledge that is provided by a good site investigation.
We have expertise in investigations in remote or difficult to access situations across the UK and we draw on a range of techniques and partners to do this. We are also able to meet difficult constraints such as costs and timescales, whilst health and safety remains at the core of all our operations.
Our independence often allows the scope of a CGL site investigation to incorporate innovative techniques offered by our specialist subcontract partners to support the aims of the investigation and meet the requirements of the design. Our carefully chosen and audited laboratory partners allow a full suite of geotechnical and chemical testing to be undertaken in accordance with industry best practice. These partners together with our experienced field engineers and scientists allow CGL to offer a robust and knowledge led field team, who are quick to offer real-time solutions to capture the right information at the right time.
Our tailored and cost effective investigations design out conservatism, allowing us to enhance the value-added solution from the skills we can bring with geotechnical design using numerical analysis to predict serviceability limits required for European Code compliance.
We can act as consultants or managing contractors – either way we will work with you to get best value from the investigation phases to deliver your project on time and within budget.
CGL doesn’t subscribe to a standardised reporting layout. Instead we produce a bespoke report – which may be factual, interpretative or otherwise – to ensure that our client’s needs and regulatory requirements are satisfied on every project.
