Geotechnical Observations (GeO) supply, install, read and interpret the results from all types of structural and geotechnical instrumentation. Our aim is to always provide the right structural or geotechnical monitoring solution so that our clients can make informed decisions and can deliver safe, efficient and economic projects that cause minimal disturbance to the environment around them.
GeO specialises in the measurement of pore water pressures and suction, with particular reference to the stability of clay cuttings, excavations, embankments and slopes. The company has developed a unique suite of equipment for measuring pore water pressures and suctions in the field and the laboratory. This equipment has been used throughout the world and is actively contributing to improving the geotechnical community’s understanding of pore water suction and its application to the behaviour of geotechnical structures.
GeO is the exclusive distributor in the UK and Ireland for Measurand’s ShapeAccelArray (SAA) displacement monitoring system.
GeO has worked on many high profile projects such as Heathrow Terminals 2B and 5, the New Wembley Stadium and Crossrail. Currently GeO is the supplier of instrumentation and monitoring services to the Northern line Extension project and Hinkley Point C.
