Many of the projects undertaken by Geotechnology are driven either by environmental legislation or are directly aimed at protecting human health and the environment. Geotechnology provides clients with experienced personnel that have the skills to tackle a range of environmental issues including the safe development of land, investigation and assessment of risks associated with contamination, environmental monitoring (water, air, noise, soil), flood assessment and waste classification.

Projects very often require a detailed knowledge of a range of potential contaminants and an understanding based on experience of the processes occurring within the environmental media of interest. This may include the determination of site specific development criteria for the protection of human health and the behaviour of contaminants in soil and groundwater.
