Why we founded Ground Science
Ground Science was established in 2003 when two directors Ernst Gmehling and Chris Senserrick saw the need for a high value, fast testing service for the construction and turf industries . We also saw a need for a company capable of providing a broad range of engineering services and skills to the diverse range of clientele. The growth of the company is a testament to the quality of service provided and the technical skills and experience of the staff.
