Ruddlesden geotechnical


Ruddlesden geotechnical is an enthusiastic, customer-focused company that has grown in size and in stature since its formation in 2004.

Ruddlesden geotechnical prides itself in having friendly, approachable staff, which leads to strong customer-client relationships. All technical staff are appropriately qualified and experienced and receive on-going in-house and external training.

The Ruddlesden geotechnical company training scheme is accredited by the Geological Society of London .

As a minimum, all site personnel hold valid CSCS cards, have received asbestos awareness training, are emergency first-aid trained and have undertaken Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT) training. The company is registered with Constructionline and is a member of the Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS).

We endeavour to provide clients with the appropriate balance of the following:

  1. High quality service, from knowledgeable, enthusiastic and dedicated staff.
  2. Rapid response: site visits promptly attended; rapid initial feedback and issue of results.
  3. Competitive price: low overheads of a relatively small, private company are passed on to the client.
