GDG has recently opened two new offices to support its expanding team and services. A new London-based office will serve many of its geotechnical clients and will provide much needed geographic support for the company’s rapidly growing business portfolio in the UK market. Recently appointed Yvonne Ainsworth, Director, will be heading up the office and management of the company’s operations in England.
Additionally, creating access to a regional resource pool, a new office has opened in Blackpool, Cork, which will strengthen GDG’s market position in the Munster area. The GDG Office Manager and Principal Engineer is Tim O’ Shea and GDG Director is Gerry O’ Sullivan.
GDG has also expanded its range of services which will now include a dedicated Environmental Risk Management and Contaminated Land Provision, which will run from its Edinburgh office, serving as an environmental hub for the entire group. The new Environmental Risk Management and Contaminated Land capability will be headed by John Cleland, who brings over 25 years’ experience in environmental science to GDG.
As well as extending its geographical reach and expanding its range of services, GDG has enhanced its service offering with three new additions to its offshore wind team; Alice Maynard, who will be based in Bath as part of a GDG expansion in the UK, Gail McAleese, a geophysicist with experience working on pre-construction surveys for offshore wind farms and Catherine Burke, design engineer, who brings 7 years engineering experience, having worked on construction of renewables projects as well as in oil and gas.
