Ian has 30 years’ experience in the design and management of projects relating to geotechnics, geotechnical design, ground improvement, earthworks, geotechnical remediation of soils and reuse of secondary materials. He has extensive experience in the specification, testing and verification of civil engineering projects.
A high proportion of Ian’s work involves the re-engineering of highly variable made ground associated with brownfield developments and remediation projects, designing solutions based on the results from previous investigations. His specialist experience in the testing of construction materials, including soils, rocks, primary & secondary aggregates, concrete, tar and bituminous-bound materials has given him substantial expertise in geotechnical engineering design.
Ian designs ground improvement schemes for a wide range of developments using a variety of different techniques in isolation or combination, including the use of dynamic compaction, vibro-replacement stone and concrete columns, preload and surcharge, modification and stabilisation using hydraulic binders and deep soil mixing.
Ian provides these services for a range of blue-chip clients across various sectors including residential development, industrial warehouses, and energy.
