    GDG add top consultancy skills and experience to their London team

    Leading geotechnical engineering consultancy, Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions (GDG), with offices in Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh and London, recently acquired SE England based consultancy Applied Geotechnical Engineering (AGE).

    Paul Doherty, Managing Director at GDG, said ‘the acquisition is another step towards realising our ambition of building a consultancy to provide the highest level geotechnical services throughout the UK, Ireland and further afield’.

    The acquisition will strengthen GDG’s market position throughout the UK but especially in the London area, where GDG is very active. While strengthening GDG’s strong knowledge base in its existing business sectors, it will also allow GDG to expand its consultancy service offering into the area of geoenvironmental engineering.

    The AGE principals and associates bring a wealth of experience and are particularly highly regarded as geotechnical engineers. Founding directors, Neil Smith and Mike Turner, both bring a lifetime of geotechnical experience, a huge level of knowledge and a high-level of comfort to their existing client base. Through this acquisition, long-established AGE clients will now benefit from access to the wider
    resource pool at GDG, which comprises a team of highly-skilled engineering staff that can assist in providing an enhanced service.

    Conversely, existing GDG clients will benefit from the wealth of experience within AGE. GDG provides geotechnical engineering consultancy mainly to the infrastructure, marine, renewable energy and the commercial/industrial building sectors.

    GDG gets to work on Landslide Hazard and Risk Pilot Study in Guatemala

    The geohazard team at GDG is delighted to have been commissioned by the World Bank to undertake a landslide hazard and risk pilot study for the Mancomunidad Gran Ciudad del Sur, Guatemala.

    The objective of this study is to determine landslide susceptibility and hazard zoning in a main pilot area of approximately 25km2. This project builds on GDG's reputation as leaders in landslide risk assessments and slope stability analysis.

    Over the past 5 years, we have worked on a range of national and international projects and have amassed unique experience in predicting landslide behaviour, quantifying landslide mechanisms, developing susceptibility maps, hazard zoning and quantitative risk modelling.

    This recent Guatemala project provides an excellent opportunity to apply these skills to a new environment and we look forward to working with both the World Bank, the national and local authorities to deliver a bespoke project solution.

    If you have slope stability or landslide concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
