Ground Engineering

The ground engineering and geotechnical activities that we carry out are mainly based around our extensive fleet of specialist drilling rigs and grouting equipment and cover everything from – site investigation drilling to mine workings and mineshaft stabilisation, mini-piling to soil nailing and anchoring, deep wells to coal bed methane and ground source heating boreholes, mine infilling to compaction grouting. With our in-house mining expertise we also carry out redundant mines access and stabilisation work from underground. All activities can be provided as fully validated design and construct services if required.


The capability pages and example project profiles provide full details of all our ground engineering and geotechnical services. Alternatively, contact us for more details or to discuss specific projects – we are always happy to provide technical advice and practical solutions for ground engineering problems.
