CGL’s expertise in risk assessment and negotiation with regulators is often used to promote practical and environmentally robust solutions that provide confidence to parties with different commercial, technical, and regulatory perspectives.

Similarly, our understanding of ground engineering and our use of complex technical analysis, where appropriate, can often lead to developments providing greater returns on investment.

Award Winning Experts

Our investment in training and technology enables our team to achieve a detailed understanding of soil-structure interaction which has been used to design foundations for demanding projects including numerous high tower developments in central London.

CGL has a reputation for adding value or reducing risks in projects and this talent was recognised by an award from Ground Engineering magazine for Best UK Project with a Geotechnical Value Between £1-3 million. The project was for a new office building where we used an innovative approach to temporary and permanent works for a 20,000 cubic meter basement in chalk next to a fuel station and Network Rail main line.
