Ian Farmer Associates offers a complete range of geotechnical and environmental investigation techniques and services alongside providing specialist services from materials technologists and on-site chemists, with associated testing and monitoring services. Since joining us in 2017, the company has bolstered our considerable ground investigation services. The acquisition presents synergistic growth opportunities for both businesses. The acquisition expanded RSK’s footprint as one of the biggest natural and built environment consultancies in the UK. It also provided a great opportunity for RSK to extend its coverage into the north-east of England and to bring further laboratory testing expertise and facilities in-house.
