April 26, 2021

Structural Soils Ltd, an RSK group company, has been expanding the geotechnical testing services offered to its clients. First, by increasing the testing capacity of its geotechnical laboratories and site testing teams and second, by acquiring new technology for testing on- and offshore samples from the UK and abroad.
