The aim is to form the largest employee-owned geology, geotechnical investigation and geotechnical design practice in Asia.
GeoEng Consultants is a specialist civil and geotechnical consulting company with more than 25 years’ experience in the region, providing technical support to geotechnical specialist contractors. It has been involved in major projects, including Singapore's Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and Mass Rapid Transport railway.
Golder, which employs more than 7,000 people across 160 offices around the world, provides consulting, design and construction services in the specialist areas of earth, environment and energy.
Golder Associates president and CEO Brian Conlin said the move to join forces with GeoEng would provide substantial benefits to clients across the Asia-Pacific region. "This partnership will boost Golder's capabilities in Asia by expanding its geotechnical engineering capabilities in the planning and design of sub-structures and underground construction works; particularly in basement excavation, foundation, soil improvement, slope stabilisation, underpinning and tunnelling projects," he said. "Combining our geology, geotechnical investigation and geotechnical design practices will make Golder the largest practice of this type in Asia - allowing us to manage larger and more complex projects in tunnelling and other fields.”
GeoEng's Dr IndrayoganYogarajah said: "GeoEng is delighted to join forces with Golder - giving clients access to a global network of resources and expertise. We remain committed to working in the local market and providing the same high level of service for which we are known."
