About NX

The team at NX Consulting offer geoenvironmental & geotechnical site investigation, contaminated land, civil, and energy engineering services across the full range of work sectors from our head office in Altrincham.

We specialise in site investigations and provide Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 due diligence appraisals of both Brownfield and Greenfield land, for all geoenvironmental and geotechnical projects. Our services are developed to identify and define the ground related risks from geohazards such as soil and groundwater contamination, mining instability, natural geological hazards, slope failure and landfills.
