We are in 2018, and with continuous development and people looking for more digitalization, the concern for the human populace and safeguarding natural resources has dropped down a lot. More and more projects are made without a consideration of how to preserve our land, soil, air, and atmosphere. This in return has endangered not only our planet Earth, but also the Flora, Fauna, and humans are in constant threat of being eliminated. Thus, when we work on any project where all these main aspects are concerned, we bring in our environmental engineers and consultants. We are renowned as some of the best firms that provide Environmental consultancy in London. Let us tell you why considering environmental protection is important before you start building your project.

Clay, silt, sand, rock, and snow are important materials in geotechnics. The engineering involves defining the soil's strength and deformation properties. Geotechnical engineering includes specialist fields such as soil and rock mechanics, geophysics, hydrogeology and associated disciplines such as geology. The specialism involves using scientific methods and principles of engineering to collect and interpret the physical properties of the ground for use in building and construction. Its practical application, example foundation engineering, has come to require a scientific approach.  Geotechnics term is currently used to describe both the theoretical and practical application of the discipline.
