We are one of the world’s leading cone penetration testing (CPT) companies, delivering ground investigations and providing engineering consultancy for construction projects on land and in the marine environment around the world. We provide high quality, accurate and reliable data to determine a wide range of engineering parameters for geotechnical design and provide our clients with high-value interpretation and engineering input for their projects. One of our key drivers is sustainability. CPT has a low environmental impact and generates very little spoil; we aim to reduce waste in all our operations, choosing low-carbon technologies such as electric-hybrid CPT rigs wherever possible.
