Who we are

mines.JPG

We have extensive experience in the creation and interpretation of geotechnical FEA models and we use this experience to perform ground and structural movement predictions, basement impact assessments and soil-structure interaction analyses on a wide range of projects in the commercial, residential, transport, industrial, mining and petrochemical sectors.

We are also experts at ground and structural movement measurement by radar satellite image analysis. Our unique combination of geotechnical and satellite image analysis expertise allows us to select the most appropriate, state-of-the-art analysis techniques to obtain accurate data even in challenging conditions and to provide informed interpretations of radar satellite data. We have applied these techniques in a wide range of business sectors including transport infrastructure, environmental, water resources, mining, petrochemical and commercial.

Skevi Perdikou

Senior Engineer
MSc, PhD

Skevi manages many of our engineering projects, particularly those local to Cyprus and in the Middle East region. Her unique combination of geotechnical and satellite remote sensing skills, enable her to use state-of-the-art technologies for the prediction and measurement of ground movement and providing engineering evaluation and assessment of product outputs. She has 20 years of experience in the fields of geotechnical engineering and satellite remote sensing, specialising in the use of finite element analysis for ground movement prediction and satellite radar techniques for ground movement measurement and monitoring. She gained an MSc in Geotechnical Engineering at City University, London and a PhD in the field of satellite remote sensing at the University of Southampton, UK. She has worked on many commercial and research projects applying satellite remote sensing techniques to the measurement of ground and structural movement, site and route selection, crop irrigation demand, atmospheric and water quality assessment and natural hazard resilience.
