GDG buys South-east-based consultancy AGE
Leading geotechnical engineering consultancy Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions (GDG) has strengthened its position throughout the UK with the acquisition of south-east England- based consultancy Applied Geotechnical Engineering (AGE).
GDG has offices in Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh and London, and its managing director, Paul Doherty, 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 of AGE also strengthens 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. GDG provides geotechnical engineering consultancy mainly to the infrastructure, marine, renewable energy and the commercial/industrial building sectors.
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.
