Shenzhen Geokey Group Co., Ltd. was established in October 1991. Its registered capital is presently RMB320 million. The Group is among those which are first transformed from hydrogelogical corps into a professional company engaged in survey and design and geotechnical engineering. Over three decades of development, GongKan Group has been inheriting the blood lineage of the Hydrogelogical Corps and adhering to the "pioneering spirit". The Group has steadily developed into a national-level high-tech enterprise which owns the most complete survey and design industry qualifications and is leading in geotechnology in China.
In 1974, shouldering the important task of thoroughly finding out China’s ground water resources, the Infrastructural Construction Engineering Hydrogelogical Corps came into being. With the establishment of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, “Regiment 912” of the Corps entered Shenzhen in its entire organizational system in 1983. On December 25 of the same year, "Regiment 912" was collectively transferred to civilian work and was reorganized into a municipally affiliated entity, and “Shenzhen Geotechnical Investigation Company” was formed, in which the "Geotechnical Department" and “Geotechnical Design Institute” are the predecessor of Shenzhen GongKan Geotechnical Group Co., LTD. In 1991, after approved by Shenzhen People’s Government, "Shenzhen Huanyu Geotechnical Engineering Company was formed and it was renamed "Shenzhen GongKan Geotechnical Engineering Co., Ltd.” in 1996 and was established as "Shenzhen GongKan Geotechnical Group Co., LTD." in 2014.
The Group has been granted: “Grade A Qualification for Comprehensive Engineering Survey” by Ministry of Housing and Urban and Rural Construction; the 4 Grade A Qualifications for Geological Disaster Prevention Project Survey, Design and Construction and for Geological Disaster Risk Assessment, as well as Grade A Qualification for Geological Survey (Hydrogelogical, Engineering and Environmental Geology Surveys) issued by Ministry of Land Resources; Grade A Qualification for Survey and Mapping issued by State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping; a number of qualifications for contracting the construction of municipal works, water conservancy and hydropower works, river and lake regulation works, ground base and foundation works and other special engineering works; the “Qualification for Construction Project Quality Inspection Agency" and "CMA Metrological Certification" laboratory.
"Talent, Technology, Innovation, Cooperation". GongKan Group orients itself as a high-end professional, talented and technologically intensive concentric and diversified professional company which is integrated with geological disaster prevention and control and geotechnical engineering survey, design and construction. The Group has attracted and cultivated many engineering technical talents who have practical experience and it has engaged a number of experts and professors who have influences in the industry as its technical consultants. It has also owned advanced technical r&d strengths. Currently, the Group has 3 professorial senior engineers, 56 senior engineers and 106 engineers; 260 of them hold the college degree or above, and 5 has the doctor’s degree and 58 the master’s degree; the Group has 126 professionals who have been granted the various practicing qualifications such as Registered Geotechnical Engineer, Registered Constructor and Registered Costing Engineers.
