GT Projekt is a geotechnical consulting company operating since 1999.
GT Projekt was created by merging small consulting companies established in 1991.
The company was created by Paweł Łęcki MSc (structural and geotechnical engineer), Maciej Troć PhD (geologist and hydrogeologist) and Andrzej T.Wojtasik PhD (civil and geotechnical engineer). Founders of the company are closely assisted with the Technical University in Poznań.
At present, GT Projekt employs 45 specialists representing civil and structural engineering, engineering geology and chemistry. Most of our staff are licensed geologists and civil engineers, and our senior staff, are awarded by the Polish Geotechnical Committee Certificate.
In 2003 GT Projekt has implemented a quality control system ISO 9001:2000. Currently, the quality assurance is in accordance with ISO 9001:2008.
GT Projekt is constantly expanding the scope of activities in an effort to meet the growing needs of our Clients.
