Founded in Leyland in 2015, G7 Geotech aims to provide reliable, highly informative and good quality ground investigation and geotechnical consultancy services for private sector commercial and residential property developers and public sector schools, prisons and hospitals and their design and construction teams. The main focus is attention to detail for ground and groundwater conditions, an understanding of the Client’s aims and keeping the design and construction team informed of findings at the earliest opportunity.
We aim to keep in mind the overall aims of the projects we are involved in so that the wider design team can gain maximum benefit from our unique position as being appointed and having direct input on sites during concept planning and often prior to Planning Approval.
In 2020, the company opened a new office location in Cardiff, and now our geotechnical engineers each have over 30 years’ experience in the geotechnical and ground investigation sub-sector, having previously worked for a Local Authority, a number of Engineering Consultancies, as well as a Geotechnical Contractor and several Ground Investigation Specialists. This broad range of experience has included investigations throughout England and Wales. The founder, Alan Watson is a Chartered Civil Engineer and Chartered Environmentalist. A number of Alan's articles have been published in Ground Engineering Magazine.
G7 Geotech work with sub-contract partners to provide utility survey, window sample, cable percussive, rotary drilling and soakage testing services, borehole monitoring and laboratory geotechnical and contamination testing for intrusive ground investigations.
