About Earth Environmental & Geotechnical – Scotland

A high quality, cost-effective and pragmatic geotechnical, mining, geological and environmental service to clients across Scotland and northern England. We take pride in our work and are committed to delivering timely services at a reasonable cost with clearly presented solutions.

Our Edinburgh office benefits from expert knowledge and a keen understanding of the area it serves, including the region that powered the development of Scotland’s industrial past.

We offer geotechnical, mining, geological and environmental services to your clients across Scotland and the north of England. The region carries its own challenges. From Prestwick across to St Andrews, through Glasgow and Edinburgh, runs an extensive coal resource that fuelled the historical development of the region. The area also contains a high concentration of Development High Risk Areas, an extensive catalogue of abandoned mines, numerous mine entries, coal outcrops, past (and some current) surface mining and more. All of which creates a challenging building and development environment, demanding thorough research and reporting. Coal mining activity in Scotland is almost exclusive to this area.

As with other areas of the UK, radon in Scotland is widespread, with highest radon potential, a maximum of between 10 to 30%, found across an area from the Cairngorms to Deeside; plus a pocket of radon potential greater than 30% around Helmsdale on the Moray Firth.

In terms of mineral resources, the varied geology of the region of Clackmannanshire, Fife and Falkirk, the Lothians and Edinburtgh, Ayrshire, Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire, Lanarkshire and Glasgow offers various types of sand and gravel, limestone, building stone, aggregates, a variety of clays,  hydrocarbons, oil-shale and more.
