Site Investigation

Site Investigation

We think site investigation is more than a product - it's a process. Investigation is an exploratory activity, designed specifically for each site - to gather the knowledge required for successful development.

We don't have our own drilling rigs, but we can select the most appropriate investigatory technique to suit the ground conditions and the needs of the investigation. The techniques we can deploy include;


-hand auger
-dynamic probing
-cable percussive boring
-static cone
-machine dug trial pits
-window sampling
-rotary (open hole and core drilling)
-geophysical techniques

Geotechnical Analysis

Geotechnical Analysis

We are geologists who seek to understand the earth as an engineering structure. The composition of the earth is intrinsically variable and it is only by understanding the geological processes that give rise to this variability that site investigation data can be understood.

Effective analysis converts the data of geological surveys and site investigations into straightforward engineering principles that assist in determining the constraints to development.

-interpretative reports
-geotechnical parameters
-earth pressure analysis
-slope stability analysis
-battered pit design
-rock excavatability assessment
-geotechnical claims assessments
-dewatering
-pump test analysis
-level and verticality surveys

In Situ Testing

In Situ Testing

In addition to offering a wide range of investigatory techniques, we also undertake in situ testing such as percolation tests and plate bearing tests. The great advanatage of these methods is that are real-world tests that provide direct evidence of ground behaviour.
