CGL’s experienced geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, and contaminated land specialists work across the UK providing on-site ground investigation with a wide spectrum of values.

Our Ground Investigation Services 

Our clients vary from major residential and commercial organisations through infrastructure and transport stakeholders to individual householders.

Our experience and knowledge of the industry ensure we use appropriately experienced and quality-driven ground investigation contractors as well as soil and contamination testing laboratories. This ensures our factual information is compliant with current standards and supports the interpretative and design reporting that we deliver.

CGL is always keen to work with clients to develop standards-compliant ground investigation services that take account of the end-project design alongside the specific site and project constraints. 

Indeed, a CGL investigation scoping document often forms the first stage in significant whole-project cost savings for our clients. 

CGL can also develop a detailed ground investigation specification and then undertake and review a competitive tender process should the client desire as part of a wider CGL contract management role.

Construction Supervision Processes

Ground investigation is undertaken using long-term partner contractors who have passed our stringent approved supplier process and meet the relevant quality standards. 

CGL has significant experience in undertaking innovative investigation and tailoring the approach to specific site requirements. This often involves a multi-technique approach across cable percussive, rotary, and window sample boreholes, CPTs, trial pits, and foundation inspection pits.  

Soil, groundwater, and gas sampling is undertaken in accordance with the applicable standards and monitoring installations for a variety of purposes.

Accredited Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineers  

Health and safety remain at the forefront of our approach, with fully trained supervisors and operatives, detailed site-specific risk assessment and method statements, and specialist partners providing buried utility and Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) mitigation.

Correct management of health and safety is paramount throughout all our works and CGL staff are trained and hold specialist competencies across a number of key schemes and industries including CSCS, National Grid Persons, Competent Persons, BESC, PTS, EUSR, EMSS Safety Passport, HSG47 and more.

CGL’s team of engineers has the expertise to supervise site investigation services of all scales and across all environments, whether overseeing our own approved subcontractors, or others. 

A comprehensive site management and supervision regime, alongside a sound knowledge of UK and international standards, is critical to ensure the highest quality is achieved during the ground investigation and therefore best value.
