- Notes: Surrey Geotechnical Consultants Limited was founded in 1978. As its name implies, the first business of the company was civil engineering consultancy, principally for contractual claims and for specialist design. The company is based in the county of Surrey, UK. SGC occupies a niche market in the construction industry, created by the introduction of the hi-tech computer-based numerical techniques which are now common for the analysis of the most challenging of our modern engineering projects. Whether you design or construct houses, buildings or major civil engineering projects such as bridges, dams, tunnels or highways, you will need soil testing, and we can help. SGC provides a fast, tailor-made soil and rock testing service, which focuses upon the particular needs of your project. No job is too small or too routine. Our extensive knowledge of soil testing and foundation design, built on 25 years of experience, is available to help you select and configure the right testing to obtain an effective and appropriate solution for the geotechnical problems on your site. Plasticity(Atterburg limit) tests for subsidence, undrained strength tests for bearing capacity, and oedometer tests for settlement analyses are just part of the service we offer. No job is too large or too complex. During the past 15 years SGC has provided geotechnical testing services for some of the world's largest and most sophisticated construction. Working on projects such as Dubai's 321m high Chicago Beach Hotel, London's Jubilee Line and Crossrail tunneling projects, Scotland's Skye Bridge and many dams in Africa and elsewhere, we have used our state-of-the-art instrumentation and stress-path facilities to help solve some of the most demanding engineering problems.
