WHAT WE DO?
Site investigation and analysis
We use state-of-the-art equipment to provide accurate and reliable results, allowing us to tailor our recommendations to your project’s specific needs. Our site investigation and analysis services aim to ensure that your project is safe, sustainable, and successful.
Quality control for earthworks
One of the quality control tasks usually performed is to check the physical and mechanical properties of soil from earthworks, usually by means of plate load testing or laboratory testing. Other projects may require dynamic probing or static penetration testing.
Geotechnical design and recommendations
Although most foundation design is incorporated in the general structure design project, there are some special works that need the attention of specialized geotechnical engineers. This is where we can offer our expertise, in projects that involve pile or micropile foundations, supporting structures for deep excavations, underground structures, consolidation analysis, ground improvement etc.
Soil and rock mechanics testing
Our geotechnical laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by experienced professionals, enabling us to provide a wide range of geotechnical testing services. We are capable of conducting various soil and rock tests, including classification, compaction, shear strength, permeability, and consolidation tests, among others. With our geotechnical laboratory, we can provide you with the necessary data to make informed decisions about your project’s foundation design and overall performance.
Geotechnical geophysics involves the use of non-invasive geophysical methods to investigate the subsurface conditions of a site. These methods can include seismic surveys, electrical resistivity imaging, ground-penetrating radar, and magnetic surveys, among others. Geotechnical geophysics testing provides a comprehensive understanding of the site’s geology and soil characteristics, enabling us to accurately assess the site’s suitability for construction, identify potential hazards, and recommend appropriate foundation designs.
Geotechnical monitoring is an important part of projects with a high degree of geotechnical risk. Whenever a deep excavation is required, a proper surveying of the construction site as well as the nearby structures needs to be carried out. We can offer monitoring services involving inclinometer measurements, precision geometrical leveling, groundwater monitoring and crack-meter instrumentation.
In situ testing
In situ testing is a crucial part of site investigation, providing valuable data about the site’s subsurface conditions. We offer various in situ testing services, including CPT (Cone Penetration Test), Dynamic Probing (Light, Heavy and Super Heavy), plate load test, steel piles pull out tests etc. We have the equipment and expertise to perform these in situ tests accurately and efficiently.
