Meet Our Team

Director

Managing Director
Geotechnical Engineering Services

“N.G. Stebbing & Associates, Structural Engineers have had long standing professional relationship with Morrison Geotechnic & in particular with their Senior Engineer Mr. Dennis Riley, who has provided clear and accurate geotechnical advice on a large variety of projects that we as structural engineers have been involved in over the years, including but not limited to Multi Storey concrete framed residential buildings, subterranean basement excavations, shoring solutions & foundation design.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dennis & the firm Morrison Geotechnic to provide professional advice & undertake the geotechnical testing & reporting required for a project.”
Mr Neil Stebbing — Director, N.G. Stebbing & Associate

“I have commissioned Morrison Geotechnic for all my Company’s geotechnical related consultancy requirements over the past 13 years. My business has engaged exclusively in the development and construction of multi residential development over that period.
At all times Morrison Geotechnic have provided dependable, responsible and efficent outcomes. Further, at all times I have found Morrison Geotechnic management of good character. I recommend Morrison Geotechnic for any geotechnical commision.”
Tom Dooley — Managing Director, Tom Dooley Developments

“Morrison Geotechnical have been instrumental in geotechnical design solutions for our projects over the last 10 years, and 5 years previously when I was a consulting engineer. Morrison design solutions have allowed over $500M of our projects in very difficult geotechnical conditions to proceed ahead of schedule and  on budget.
After using the majority of geotechnical engineers throughout Australia and Asia over the last 20 years and completing substantial sized projects, I believe Dennis Riley of Morrison Geotechnics is in the top of his field providing geotechnical solutions which allow projects to be financially viable and furthermore reduce costs and time.”
Damien Cavallucci —  Cavcorp

“Mick, Dennis & the team from Morrison Geotechnic have been a reliable member
of our team for more than a decade. In the world of engineering construction we
need 100% confidence in our Geotechnical Services partner. Morrison Geotechnic
provide this certainty which is why we have maintained a close working
relationship & also why I would recommend them to potential customers.”
Karl Yunker — Managing Director, Pensar Construction Group

“Mick is the consummate professional – he consistently provides high quality
service and has the knowledge, experience and technical nous to back it up.”
Brett Dellit — Bradlees Meinhardt

“Canstruct Pty Ltd has had a long association with Morrison Geotechnic – going
back more than 50 years to the days when Neville Morrison and Robin Murphy
were at the University of Queensland studying in the Faculty of Engineering
together.
Morrison Geotechnic have worked together on many projects with Canstruct both
locally and in remote locations and including some with unusual challenges such
as off-shore and/or technically demanding work.
From this experience, we know that we can rely on Morrison Geotechnic for
technical excellence and superior service and we therefore have no hesitation in
endorsing them.”
Robin Murphy — Founding Director, Canstruct Construction Solutions

 

“Doval Constructions (Qld) Pty Ltd (Doval) has had a successful working
relationship with Morrison Geotechnic for in excess of a decade. Not only
does Doval use Morrison Geotechnic exclusively for all its geotechnical testing
requirements, but expert geotechnical advice is also regularly sought from
Morrison Geotechnic during both tender and construction phases. In all Doval’s
dealings with Morrison Geotechnic we have found them to be professional and
extremely good value for money.”
Ben Dyson — Director, Doval Constructions Pty Ltd

“Mortons Urban Solutions and Morrison Geotechnical Pty Ltd have a professional
working relation which has spanned many years. Together our organisations
have been involved in many successful development projects in South East
Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Morrison’s staff provide high quality
geotechnical support and advice to MUS allowing our companies to achieve cost
effective and high quality engineering outcomes for our mutual clients.”
John Harrison — Director, Mortons Urban Solutions

“Whilst working on behalf of our clients Morrison Geotechnical have been an
integral part of the design and construction team for many years and have
found them to have an extensive depth of knowledge and when required
always have solutions to testing geotechnical situations. They are involved from
planning design inception through all facets of the project until final geotechnical
certification at project completion. It is a pleasure to have them as part of the
team.”
Brad Must — Mortons Urban Solutions
