In May 2016, Garenne Civil Engineering were happy to announce that they had changed their name to Geomarine Limited.
The new name was taken to be in keeping with the Geomarine sister companies in the Channel Islands. Geomarine, established in 1998, is the Channel Island’s leading Civil Engineering Contractor offering a whole spectrum of services including piling, site investigation, drainage, underpinning, rope access and marine construction. Geomarine Limited (UK) will call upon the competence and resources of the well-established Channel Islands companies as well as benefitting from significant parent company support which comes of being part of the Garenne Group.
Originally set up as Garenne Civil Engineering Ltd (GCE), the company took its first steps in January 2016. The newest group member company is headed up by Martin Holmes (Garenne UK Operations) and Ian Gilmour (of Geomarine). Only registered in January and with Rob Martin joining the team in February as UK Contracts Manager, they have established their base in the Ringwood (in the New Forest on the south coast of Hampshire).
The company objective is to become a UK market leader in provision of specialist geotechnical, marine and civil engineering services. With the enthusiastic approach and ‘can-do’ attitude of the Geomarine team and with the support of the Group, we believe this objective to be obtainable. Having commenced their first contract Rob Martin, Senior Contracts Manager is looking forward to developing and growing the business.
