The Global GeoConsulting Service will be established in three major geographical areas: Europe, United States and Asia/Pacific, with the collective objective of building a specialized consulting business in each region. It will operate across Fugro’s Geotechnical and Survey Divisions, utilizing the existing offices, infrastructure, and resources available in each region supplemented by strategic alliances, acquisitions and increased recruitment. The full range of engineering geoscience, geohazard, and geotechnical consulting services will be offered through one operating company in each region.
For Europe, a dedicated consultancy unit is being set up in Great Yarmouth, UK as part of Fugro Limited, which is based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The Wallingford office already performs extensive consultancy work in the fields of engineering geology, geohazards and geotechnical engineering. Furthermore it operates one of the world’s most advanced soil testing laboratories. The expanded company will be renamed Fugro GeoConsulting Limited to reflect its new emphasis.
A new geoconsultancy company is also being formed in Houston, Texas, USA, where the specialist engineering geology and geohazard consulting group within Fugro GeoServices Inc. will merge with elements of the geotechnical engineering consultancy group of Fugro McClelland Marine Geosciences Inc. to form Fugro GeoConsulting Inc.
A third geoconsultancy operating company is planned in the near future to cover the Asia/Pacific region.
