About Us

Leaders in site investigations and Geoenvironmental services from (under) the ground up!

RGS is an established UK leader in geotechnical solutions - modern, agile and ready for an exciting future. 

Since our launch in 2003, we've seen a lot of change. Our business has grown substantially as the word spread further about our service offering to the construction sector. During that time, we've welcomed in more industry experts, keen graduates and young people to work with us, adapting our processes and solutions to meet the needs of an evolving world and client base. 
Agility doesn’t change our commitment and we remain focused on delivering the same high-quality solutions to our valued clients up and down the UK that we have done since day one.
