Core competencies

GDG is a research intensive SME and geotechnical engineering consultancy that specialises in complex
design and analysis of engineering soil-structure systems. This analysis spans the energy, infrastructure,
construction and offshore sectors. GDG have developed particular expertise in the areas of risk
identification of critical infrastructure; this includes quantifying the risk and safety levels in key
infrastructure components such as railway embankments, reservoir dams, tunnels, foundations and
support structures for offshore wind turbines. Using numerical finite element software, reliability
analysis and analytical design tools, GDG assesses geohazards and proposes mitigation solutions to
improve the residual levels of safety.
