    Futuristic Paris landmark stands on geotechnical know-how

    At 180 metres and 122 metres tall, the futuristic Duo Towers in Paris rise out of the busy urban landscape. They include over 100,000 m2 of mixed-use space and nine basement levels. A very ambitious project with unique geotechnical challenges for the feasibility assessment, ground evaluation, and foundation designs.

    How our ‘Triple A’ approach reduces mining tunnel risk

    In Yorkshire lies the world’s largest high-grade polyhalite mine. Our expertise was needed to safely construct a mineral transport tunnel for the underground site. We were more than happy to dig in with our ‘Triple A’ approach: acquiring, analysing, and advising on the site’s Geo-data.
