About TigerGeo

Sectors

Our combined services are used to locate, trace and measure a wide range of environmental targets. Sectors include geological mapping and geophysics, structural investigation for restoration of historic buildings and gardens, supporting agriculture and viticulture, mapping groundwater and flood risk, non-invasive cemetery mapping, detecting and mapping abandoned mine workings and archaeological geophysics. We also have our in-house archaeological consultant able to advise on heritage matters in general.

Technology

We use a range of land and geophysical survey equipment, matching this to the specific requirements of the work. Leica GS15 GNSS and P40 Scanstation laser scanners are used for 2D and 3D topographic survey of land and buildings, supported in the office by 2D GIS and 3D CAD and specialist modelling solutions. Our geophysical methods include 2D / 3D electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) and induced polarisation (IP), electromagnetics (EMI, ECA), ground penetrating / wall probing radar (GPR), magnetic susceptibility, MASW, micro-gravity, seismic reflection / refraction and total magnetic intensity (TMI & gradiometry). Some equipment is owned by the company, other items are hired from reputable suppliers, providing a large amount of flexibility. We have rapid and cost-effective systems for ATV-based and walking GNSS-tracked solutions, e.g. for magnetic, electromagnetic and radar methods.

Resources

We make it our business to stay informed of technological developments and the availability of reliable new open-source environmental data (e.g. from government departments) to support our projects and strengthen our toolbox. These include soil, rock, hydrological and topographic data, aerial imagery and various other elements. We also keep abreast of developments in standards, e.g. draft EN ISOs, Eurocode 7 - BS5930, etc.

Where we work

Everywhere! We work throughout the UK and Ireland, including the remote islands and also in continental Europe. Consultancy and support has been provided for projects in the Ukraine, Armenia and other challenging locations. We work across most terrains, from wide open arable land to rugged mountainous country to urban areas. We have experience of all shapes and sizes of project and at differing levels of detail.

Standards and insurance

We have appointed Alan Ward (Bigfoot Services Limited) as our ISO/HSE Technical Adviser to assist us through the process of achieving ISO certification for ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001/ISO45001 through production of an Integrated Management System (IMS). Alan is also our external safety advisor.

All work is undertaken to the highest professional standards as per the guidance and codes of conduct of relevant industry bodies, including the Geological Society of London, European GPR Association (EuroGPR), EAGE and the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA).

TigerGeo is a CIfA Registered Organisation and a member of the European GPR Association (EuroGPR).

Radar (GPR) work is in accordance with ETSI EG 202 730. We are licensed by OFCOM to undertake GPR survey throughout the UK and are EuroGPR members.

ATV drivers are LANTRA certified, all operations staff have REC Level 2 / 3 First Aid certification and CSCS-AQP cards. An application for CHAS certification is underway.

We maintain insurance cover for £1,000,000 Professional Indemnity, £5,000,000 Public Liability and £10,000,000 Employer's Liability.
