Leap Environmental joins RSK Group

August 05, 2021

RSK Group Ltd (RSK), is delighted to announce the addition of Leap Environmental to its growing portfolio.

Leap Environmental, an award-winning geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigation and consulting business, provides sustainable engineering solutions to the construction industry, local authorities and landowners.

This deal is the latest acquisition by RSK and closely follow that of CS2, which was announced earlier this week. RSK already owns more than 100 businesses that deliver end-to-end solutions in a wide range of sectors.

Leap Environmental, which provides services to the public and private sectors, including clients in the construction industry and local and national government, will retain all its current brand, employees, leadership, values and strategy. The business will continue to focus on its core service range but will now be able to offer a much wider range of services through sister companies.

Based in south-east England, Leap Environmental specialises in areas including land quality and contaminated land assessment, quantitative risk assessment for soil, gas and water, as well as geotechnical engineering and other services.

The business becomes part of RSK’s Geosciences and Engineering division with the backing and direction of George Tuckwell, Divisional Director and a member of the main RSK Group Limited Board of Directors.
