About Us

Foundation Specialists Group Pty Ltd (FSG) is Australia’s leading engineering consulting practice specializing in all aspects of piled foundation and retention structures. Our end-to-end services include detailed design, tender phase advice (selecting the right solution at the right price), construction phase advice (getting it built right the first time) and testing and sign off of all forms of deep foundations and retention structures.

For over a decade, our organisation has delivered specialized foundation engineering services on more than 1,000 deep foundations and retention projects, to government, contractors, multidisciplinary and geotechnical consultants.

Our company philosophy is built around providing consulting services of the highest technical standard, with a clear emphasis on value engineering and practicality.

Through our unique blend of technical expertise, testing and contracting experience FSG provides constructible, economical and innovative foundation solutions and industry leading construction monitoring and performance verification services.

Foundation Specialists Group: Our point of difference

The Directors and senior personnel of FSG have over 100 years of industry experience spanning contracting, consulting, research and testing. This combined with our internationally recognised technical expertise makes us uniquely positioned to service our clients with the highest standard of technical and practical advice.

Our testing activities also provide an invaluable resource to our consulting personnel. We are constantly testing piles across Australia and receiving real feedback in relation to actual pile performance and integrity. Rather than providing conservative ‘text book’ advice, our design methods and constructability advice are based on a real understanding of pile construction and behaviour.

At the core of our business FSG seeks not to just provide state-of- the-art technical advice to our clients, but to partner with them in winning work, delivering successful projects and solving problems with practical, real world advice.
