Goodson Associates was formed in Edinburgh on 1 November 1993 .
Since then, the company has expanded and now has three strategically placed offices nationwide that are highly focused on the core business of Civil and Structural Engineering Design plus a fourth office, in Edinburgh, dealing with transportation matters.
Goodson Associates have built a reputation for delivering a first class service on all commissions covering project values from £1,000 to £35 million.
Goodson Associates is a limited company wholly owned by share holding Directors who are all actively involved with managing projects and committed to developing the company.
Part of the company's success lies with our ability to meet the changing demands of Clients while maintaining a quality service from feasibility through to contract completion.
We employ an “umbrella” approach to our core services and sub-consultant work. We can provide the client with a number of specialist services from ground investigation works to transportation issues covered by a single warranty from Goodson Associates.
In particular we are able to provide a fully comprehensive Ground Investigation Service that covers desk-top studies, the drilling and the physical on-site works, soil testing (including Chemical Analysis), and both Factual and Interpretative Reports. These services can then be integrated into the foundation and structural design. The whole investigation and design service would then be covered by our PI insurance as a single item giving the “umbrella” protection.
Transportation design can also be included under the protection of the single point of responsibility through our Traffic and Transportation Company, Goodson Cole Transportation. We have similar partnering arrangements with hydrological engineers, topographical surveyors and acoustic allowing us to provide a Total Engineering Solution for our clients.
