We strive to offer our employees a real purpose at work; to be part of a global community that is shaping the future of our built environment and facilitating sustainable developments. Our employees are challenged to solve the major problems facing societies today and together we are proud to deliver elegant and sustainable solutions for our buildings and cities. Ground Engineering plays an integral role in this as the ground and soil are precious resources that need careful management and appropriate foundation and remediation solutions.

As we're a lot smaller than other well-known consultancies, we can offer our people multiple opportunities to learn, develop and challenge themselves and give them a strong purpose in the workplace. In our recent Employee Engagement Survey 93% of our employees believe the experience they gain with us will support future career prospects.
