How We Work

When you work with Northpoint Geotechnical Engineering, you benefit from our detail-orientated approach to geotechnical engineering and site investigations. We start with an initial consultation to understand your project and plans. From here, we move towards a desk study, which aims to draw attention to key risks, including the history of your site and any likely hazards and contaminants.

This activity paves the way for a site investigation. When performing geotechnical site investigations in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands area, we pay close attention to the region’s rich geological past. As a prominent source of coal for over two centuries, the Midlands’ low-lying ground made may still be affected by the mining heritage and, therefore, you must bring in a geotechnical engineering company with vast experience.

Northpoint will then carry out a full ground investigation both on-site and in our laboratory to assess everything from soil quality to hazards. We can then provide detailed and evidence-based design advice for your site. If required, we’ll then provide both remediation and validation works followed by a design consultation.

We want to help you make the most of your site. So, if you want to keep your construction project on-track then look no further than Northpoint Geotechnical.
