Geotechnical and Environmental Site Investigation 2018-05-07T11:51:22+00:00

GEOTECHNICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SITE INVESTIGATION

Getting accurate, high-resolution data is essential to predicting and understanding the interaction between structures, soil and the environment. Our experienced team of engineers and geologists ensure test equipment is routinely calibrated and that site data is of the highest quality.

We draw on an extensive GIS database of completed drilling projects to help clients plan their projects, liaising with them from the outset to ensure services are tailored and the most appropriate investigation equipment and methods are adopted.

Our team is very mobile, with equipment that can work in a variety of locations, including limited access, heli-portable, shallow water (estuary) and near shore (marine) environments.

Capabilities

All testing equipment is calibrated by internal and external parties to ensure accuracy and repeatability in test results

  • rotary coring (NQ, HQ, PQ double, triple barrel + wireline) with optional core orientation

  • rotary blast/wash (air/water/mud flush)

  • rotary sonic (4×6, 6×8, DT45 & DT60 sampling – wireline) conventional & dual tube sampling

  • direct push (2 3/4”, 3 1/2”) single & dual tube sampling

  • hollow stem/flight auger

  • cable percussive
