Geotechnical assessment is essentially a cost-saving exercise, allowing risks to be identified and addressed at an early stage. We are well-versed in geotechnics, and provide a range of services to aid in development and construction, including advice in the design of foundations, slabs, retaining structures, pavements and drainage features, as well as the identification of potential geotechnical hazards such as historic mines and solution features, shrinkable clay soils, running sand, aggressive ground conditions and more.
Desk-based Geotechnical Assessments
We are able to provide desk based feasibility assessments to provide an indication of potential geotechnical factors that will require consideration when developing a site.
Site Investigation Design, Specification and Delivery
Our team are experienced in the design and delivery of geotechnical investigations to address our clients needs.
Structural Design Advice
We provide advice on various structural aspects from the design of foundations, slabs and retaining walls, to the excavation and construction of basements and buried structures. We are also able to provide parameters to aid in the design of pavements, soakaways and septic tanks.
Coal Mining RA
We are proficient in the completion of coal mining risk assessments, both as an initial assessment and as an intrusive investigation.
Structural Failures and Claims
We can design an effective investigation to address claims from structural damage and subsidence.
