Ground Investigation is an essential part to any development activity. Northpoint and its chosen specialist sub-contractors provide tailored and bespoke ground investigation services to meet their client’s needs and site-specific requirements


Without Site Investigation, ground is a hazard (Source, ICE). Underpinning every site investigation undertaken by Northpoint is the production of a plausible and robust Risk Assessment and Conceptual Site Model.

Northpoints Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering teams are here to guide the client through each element of the Ground Investigation.

From the early stages of Preliminary Risk Assessment and project appraisal to the Ground Investigation itself, Northpoint will exhibit care for even the finest of detail. Exploring Geotechnical, Geological & Land Contaminated risks offer only a snapshot into what we provide here at Northpoint.
