GB Card & Partners understands the requirements of our developer clients and their design teams and offers support in due diligence, pre-purchase acquisitions, feasibility and planning through to the design and construction phases.  Providing geotechnical and remediation design for greenfield and contaminated sites, our solutions take into account political, commercial and practical constraints, and often utilise and enhance the existing conditions and environmental setting in providing the optimal design.  Our experienced team will support you throughout the development process, providing expertise and the technical link between developer and statutory consultees.


GB Card & Partners has longstanding relationships with a number of local, national and international engineering consultancies and contractors, offering tender support, value engineering, temporary and permanent works design as well as inspection, verification and supervisory roles.  Our experienced staff are able to offer technical support throughout feasibility stages, initial design and during construction.  We offer the best value to our clients when engaged at an early stage in the project.  Through close relationships with our clients, we have developed an understanding of personal and business requirements and can tailor deliverables to meet their specific needs.


Our experienced Chartered professionals provide engineering design services to structural engineers, multidisciplinary teams and to individual clients offering advice, assessment and design.  Numerical analysts undertake risk assessment and ground modelling of contaminants for brownfield development and voluntary clean up, whilst geotechnical assessment is undertaken from first principles as well as utilising our extensive suite of 2D and 3D ground modelling and design software.  We offer input as a standalone specialist or as part of a wider design team.
