No Problems, Only Solutions.

Our specialist geotechnical, environmental and structural teams work together to provide you with cost-effective and practical solutions to your development challenges. We are experts in identifying and finding solutions to ground and environmental hazards to ensure your project can be delivered in a compliant and cost-efficient manner.

GRM provides development services and solutions to aid both large and small developers in a wide variety of market sectors: Industry, Commercial, Retail, Residential (both private individuals and large PLC’s), Public, Education, Healthcare, Leisure and Transport.

We can often demonstrate that a perceived problem is not really a hazard to the development, so for the client, a small investment in ground investigation can return many times its value in terms of cost savings.

GRM understand that in a development scenario, time is money. We’ll carry out the investigation, draw up reports and recommendations, and help you to proceed with the solutions as quickly as possible, without compromising accuracy.
