We are passionate about research, development and innovation and helping to advance understanding in the areas of expertise within which we operate. Science, Engineering and the Environment are at the heart of what we do and much of the work we undertake is innovative and involves us in breaking new ground. That includes research works we carry out on our own behalf and research works undertaken as part of commissions we undertake for our clients.
Recent examples of significant research projects include work undertaken for the EU on innovation around minerals and work undertaken for Scottish Power on renewable energy projects. Recent areas of significant technical innovation include refinement of industrial minerals testing and processing and the development of new techniques for archaeological investigation and testing. Those are some examples of larger projects but there are a multitude of other projects we have been involved in and research and innovation is very much part of our make-up. It is also very much part of our daily activities.
