Since the 1950s, we at NGI (the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute) have been hooked on soil, rock and snow. In fact so much so that our geotechnical expertise is in demand in several parts of the world – from Bhutan to Bodø.
NGI is Norway's largest geotechnical specialist community and a leading centre of research and consultancy in engineering geosciences. We are a private commercial foundation with head office and laboratories in Oslo, branch office in Trondheim, avalanche research station on Mount Strynefjellet, overseas offices in Houston, Texas, USA, and in Perth, Western Australia. In addition, we have partnership agreements with well-established companies in the rest of the world.
