Halcrow's geotechnical team has in-depth experience of all aspects of geotechnical engineering, geology and geomorphology, contributing to over 500 projects worldwide every year.
We work collaboratively with our clients, other members of project teams and external stakeholders to deliver geotechnical solutions which are:
- innovative and practical
- optimised and economical
- environmentally sustainable
These objectives are achieved through the knowledge and worldwide experience of over 200 geotechnical specialists assisted by state-of-the-art systems and techniques. Our staff are based at many locations, ensuring that they can offer world-wide experience enhanced by local knowledge.
Fundamentally, our approach is based on geotechnical risk and value management. Uncertainty in ground conditions is a major source of cost and programme risks for all civil and structural engineering projects.
The effective management of these risks requires the application of expert geotechnical engineering and geological skills from project inception through planning stages to design and construction.
