GRM improves ranking in 2021 list of leading geotechnical consultants

All the hard work of the team at GRM over the past twelve months has been recognised in the annual Ground Engineering list of the top 50 geotechnical consultants in the UK.

Ground Engineering is widely acknowledged as the essential source of information on new and practical aspects of geotechnical engineering, engineering geology and geo-environmental engineering. The results of the annual survey are always eagerly awaited.

The 2021 list has recently been published by Ground Engineering, and GRM improved its ranking up to 21st (from 24th a year earlier). This rise was largely due to an increase in turnover to £3.8m (compared to £3.2m prior year), showing continued healthy growth during unprecedented trading conditions.

Richard Upton, Marketing & Sales Director at GRM, was understandably pleased with the performance and recognition from Ground Engineering: “The excellent performance of GRM last year took place against the backdrop of Covid. This created incredibly difficult trading and operational conditions, both of which we successfully managed thanks to our longstanding relationships with clients and the dedicated team of professionals at GRM.

“The construction sector as a whole stumbled at the start of the pandemic, but quickly adapted and in many sectors even accelerated. One example is the public sector, and we supported a wide and diverse range of development projects including hospitals and schools across the UK .”
