The article announcing the award, published in the February/March issue of Building and Facilities News, gives an insight into Structural Soils’ history, project work and service capability.
“Structural Soils is sought out by clients in numerous industries throughout the world for several reasons,” the article explains. “These include their intrusive investigations, which can be structured to be bespoke to the client and its site, through which they can provide a detailed analysis. In addition, they offer everything from desk studies to in-situ testing; instrumentation; monitoring; soil, rock, materials and chemical laboratory testing; factual and interpretive reporting; and much more.”
The publication then speaks to Structural Soils senior engineering geologist Eric Downey, who provides an insight into the company’s most notable clients and project experience, as well as its current expansion plans in the southeast of the UK.
“We have worked with national utility companies such as Thames Water, Welsh Water and United Utilities; with contractors and joint ventures such as Black & Veatch, the Morrison Utility Services and Galliford Try joint venture (MGjv) and eight2O; and with special project delivery vehicles such as the Thames Tideway Tunnel,” Eric told Building and Facilities News.
“Many of the major construction companies, developers and engineering consultancies are based in the southeast, many of them within greater London,” Eric added. “Having a local presence will enable us to tap into these clients and build closer working relationships with existing and new clients. Gaining, retaining and building longstanding client relationships are significant focuses for us.”
The article also commends Structural Soils’ most recent service launch, RAIL SI and RAIL SI+PLUS, which provides unique coordinated site investigation services from a single supplier, and its contribution to the charity project DIY SOS for Children in Need in September 2017, for The Roots Foundation Wales.
