About Us - our history


Douglas Partners’ origins began in the early 1960s.. 

..when the late Don Douglas established and developed the geotechnical engineering and testing services of Frankipile Australia Ltd (a leading piling contractor) under the name ‘Ground Test.’ 

D J Douglas & Partners (now Douglas Partners) was formed as a consultancy in 1983 following a friendly management buyout of these services.


50 years experience, over 80,000 projects completed !


Today, Douglas Partners maintains its reputation as a firm with a sound appreciation of the practical considerations and requirements associated with our client’s projects, and the development of ‘Integrated Practical Solutions’.

Clients use us primarily to manage the geotechnical, environmental and groundwater risks associated with their projects. We aim to be aknowledged leaders in our chosen fields of engineering and allied services in Australia and South East Asia.


We operate a network of sixteen ISO9001 accredited offices and 15 NATA registered laboratories located throughout Australia. Hence local quality assured solutions are provided for each project based on our previous experience and knowledge of the site or area. Many of our staff are recognised as experts in the industry and have international experience giving us access to the latest technology from around the world.
