RSK Geosciences logos - who we are

Realising opportunities and managing liabilities associated with land for more than 30 years

RSK Geosciences is a leading UK-based site investigation, contaminated land, geotechnical and sustainable solutions consultancy. Staffed by more than 300 professionals, we have been operating for more than 30 years. Located in 20 offices throughout the UK, our vast network responds quickly to client enquiries, rapidly mobilises teams to site and uses the latest technology to ensure an efficient flow of data among sites, offices and clients.

We help our clients to realise opportunities and manage the potential liabilities associated with acquiring, owning, operating, developing and divesting land. We work for the public and private sectors, including many of the UK’s leading property developers, major and local housebuilders, utility providers, main contractors, local authorities and other governmental organisations.

RSK Geosciences expanded its consultancy capabilities through strategic integration with Leap Environmental and Carbon Zero Consulting (CZC). In the process, RSK Geosciences acquired extensive experience and expertise in renewable energy technology, sustainable development and carbon assessment by merging with two established RSK Group companies.
