Our Philosophy

We provide geotechnical, geophysical, geospatial and engineering consultancy services to global offshore energy and marine infrastructure industries.

We’ve built our business on hard work, respect for each other and by holding ourselves to the highest standards in everything we do.

We’re now the largest consultancy of our type, with presence in key locations around the world. Our team of approachable, industry-leading experts deliver successful projects for our clients through integrity, teamwork and a drive for innovation.

Our values represent what we stand for:


We’re different. We’re fully aware that work is only one part of our lives. We respect this reality and we never want anyone to feel like a cog in a corporate machine. We’re committed to providing a working environment that respects the interrelated aspects of our lives and enables every member of staff to develop and reach their full potential.

Integrity and honesty

Every day, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity, honesty, transparency and professionalism. We only undertake work that we’re competent to perform. When we make promises or commitments we keep them. We offer fair prices for work. We avoid conflict of interest situations. We do not lie and we do not take bribes.

Industry leadership

Our business is about knowledge and we’re never satisfied with the knowledge we have. We encourage everyone who works here to increase their technical knowledge through reading, challenging projects, conferences and collaboration with university research departments. We’re committed to funding regular research and development in order to retain and advance our technical leadership.

Hard work

Seizing opportunities, working as a team, stretching and being stretched, enjoying learning and persevering when things are difficult – these are all part of achieving our full potential. Without these things we’d be an ordinary company, with them we can be extraordinary.
