The ground represents the greatest uncertainty faced by large construction projects and as such it poses the greatest risk of delay and cost over-runs. This is particularly the case for brownfield and redeveloped sites.
Early identification of potential ground related hazards allows these risks to be managed effectively so as to avoid costly and time consuming delays during the construction process.
Royal Haskoning helps its clients to manage ground related risks through the early involvement in projects of individuals with specialist experience in geotechnical, geological and geo-environmental matters. Indeed, such an approach is now mandatory under the newly established Structural Eurocodes.
Royal Haskoning has over 40 specialised geotechnical and geo-environmental staff based in offices across the UK. These individuals offer a wide range of experience gained both in the UK and overseas. As a result, we can offer a complete service including inception reports, risk assessments and desk studies, management of the ground investigation process, interpretation and basic design through to complex numerical analyses, construction control and forensic (expert witness) services.
