Providing contaminated land management for nearly 20 years

PAGeoTechnical Ltd was incorporated in 2000 by its Managing Director, Peter Atchison, in partnership with key client partners. The company provides technical and commercial consultancy for contaminated land management in partnership with international geosynthetics supply companies.

PAGeotechnical’s mission is to offer best value advice to clients, mainly in the construction and civil engineering sectors, and in the area of contaminated land. Gas protection to buildings is one of the company’s specialities, but we also have expertise in other aspects of contaminant management using geosynthetic solutions.

As a “Consultants’ Consultant”, our clients are the main environmental and consulting engineers as well as developers and construction companies. By connecting the market with a wide range of specialist suppliers we are able to maintain independence and offer best value advice of a site-specific nature. We can make solution recommendations and connect suppliers with projects either directly or as a trading organisation.

PAGeoTechnical expands continuously as a result of taking on new clients and increasing work emanating from existing ones.
