John Grimes Partnership Ltd. (JGP) are an innovative Civil, Structural, Geotechnical and Environmental Engineering consultancy based in the Southwest offering a wide spectrum of engineering solutions to regional and national clients. As an SME, JGP would like to take this opportunity to demonstrate the contribution that the company has made to the Southwest’s built environment and infrastructure, and our continued commitment to the construction sector in the region.
JGP have a dedicated team of 32 highly skilled and experienced professionals enabling us to offer a broad range of integrated consultancy, design and investigatory services across the construction sector. As an SME, JGP offers a highly skilled engineering service across a broad range of disciplines from residential to commercial developments / industrial infrastructure, design of marine / coastal structures (sea defences, jettys, ports & harbours), heavy civil engineering (such as industrial plant and telecommunication structures), highway structures, slope stabilisation & retaining wall design, ground stabilisation, foundation design and foul/surface water drainage design. JGP also undertake a range of related assessments, from geotechnical / geo-environmental (contaminated land) ground investigations, slope & cliff inspections, transport planning, asset management and flood risk assessments. Several of JGP’s engineers are recognised specialists in their field and hold professional registration such as Specialist in Land Contamination (SilC).
JGP has built a reputation of providing sound engineering advice on projects of all scales, including those relating to complex scenarios requiring a combination of engineering expertise. Unlike many competitors, JGP can provide a one-stop shop for engineering projects, as well as individual disciplines working alongside other consultants. Providing a broad spectrum of disciplines under one roof has significant benefits to quality, cost, and program. This benefits not only our clients, but also the unique development of our more junior team members. This resulting in well-rounded and highly experienced engineers, capable of conveying the company’s ethos going into the future.
Brexit and the Covid-19 Pandemic have resulted in a difficult socio-economic environment across the industry. JGP have successfully dealt with the challenges posed by these and continue to be strong financially and provide our clients with sound engineering services. JGP have implemented and embraced a more flexible system of working and based on its initial success has maintained and continued to improve this going into the future.
JGP has developed long-term working relationships with many clients that recognise the company’s expertise, performance and timely delivery on a diverse range of projects. In the last 12 months JGP have been involved in numerous engineering projects and inspections, such as:
- The Eden Project landslide remediation,
