Mike's early career was working for Arup geotechnics based in Cardiff. He also worked overseas in Thailand and Hong Kong, where he exposed the largest foundation fraud of all time.

Mike started GroundSolve Ltd in 2000 and his company has undertaken extensive expert witness work, which has highlighted many flaws in the way site investigation is procured and the way works are designed and constructed.
