Gulf Survey offers site and geotechnical investigation to carry out investigations of projects and clients in the UAE and neighboring Gulf Region. Regardless of the size of the project, all GULF SURVEY projects are approached with expertise, technology and equipment required to meet the client need.

Gulf Survey maintains modern drilling and soil / rock sampling equipment designed for site investigation purposes according to the latest technologies in the world.

The scopes of services of the site and geotechnical investigation department are:

  1. Drilling, sampling, field and laboratory testing

  2. Geotechnical studies for various types of structures; such as buildings, roads, and special structures.

  3. Off-shore geotechnical investigation.

  4. Surveys including geological and geotechnical mapping.

The materials testing department covers a wide range of specialized services which extend from routine testing of materials to consultation on complex problems related to materials technology and its application.


Equipped with modern field and laboratory testing equipment; complying with the British Standards (BS) or American Standards (ASTM) in the field of concrete, soil, aggregate, water, steel reinforcement, building materials, and non-destructive testing.

The Gulf Survey Surveying Department provides integrated Total Station and Real-time Kinematic (RTK) Global Position System (GPS) technologies with automated data collection, computer aided surveying and global positioning systems (GPS) capabilities for:

Gulf Survey Surveying Department (GSS) provides comprehensive precise hydrographic and land surveying services utilizing state-of- the-art electronic equipment to gather accurate spatial data and to process the information using the latest software in computer aided drafting (CAD).

Geophysical surveys can provide accurate and timely answers to questions with a minimum amount of disturbance to the surface of a site. In essence, geophysics allows you to “see below the surface” without having to excavate large areas or drill an inordinate number of boreholes. 

Gulf Survey Geophysical Department (GSG) Provides a broad range of geophysical expertise and services to our clients, who seek our noninvasive, surface-based geophysical capabilities for delineating the subsurface distribution of geologic material, water resources, and contaminated zones, as well as for locating potential natural hazards such as faults, karstic, cavity, and failure features. Using state-of-the- science geophysical instrumentation, and data processing methods (including joint inversions), Gulf Survey can rapidly and accurately locate, map, and interpret subsurface features and anomalies.
