About Murray Rix

A personal service with professional values

Murray Rix was established in the very early days of 1994.  Since those small beginnings we have been steadily and steadfastly developing our business, along with our reputation for total reliability and operational excellence, so that today we are nationally recognised by many of the country’s biggest and most successful organisations as one of the UK’s most respected, wholly independent geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing specialists.

Throughout this prolonged period of success we are extremely proud of the fact that at all times we have determinedly maintained our family-based independent status.

It is a business structure that has allowed us to provide the kind of personal, professional service that is firmly established on individual relationships, trust, performance and above all … results.

All our personnel benefit from an on-going training programme.  Everyone involved is extremely experienced and between us we are qualified to provide exactly the kind of technical and knowledgeable support services customers today are looking for.  Whether you contact our London or our Manchester offices you will be able to speak directly to one of our supremely experienced Civil, Geotechnical or Materials engineers who know exactly what they’re talking about.

UKAS Accredited Laboratory

Our UKAS accredited laboratory is located within our Manchester offices.  Its facilities and expertise however are readily available to both locations for speedy, efficient laboratory testing, analysis, interpretive reporting and technical advice.

Working closely with our clients, either on site or within our laboratory, we are able to confirm the suitability or otherwise of soils, aggregates, concrete, ‘blacktop’ bituminous products, un-bound and hydraulically bound mixtures, lime/cement stabilization plus of course all manner of other construction materials and ground conditions.

From a single home extension to a multi-million pound construction project

What our clients like about us, and why most of them keep coming back to us time after time, is our no-nonsense approach and the professionalism we bring to every project.

From the smallest contract to the largest construction project we guarantee to provide the same level of diligence together with our own brand of responsibility and reliability that in the end means so much and provides total peace of mind and positive reassurance for our customers.
