Site investigation includes the use of intrusive techniques such as the formation of trial pits and trenches, boreholes fitted with instrumentation for monitoring of the ground and groundwater and in-situ testing.

The purpose of a Phase II site investigation is to ascertain the geotechnical and geo-environmental parameters of the site in question to enable an accurate and value engineered foundation design, remediation/stabilisation strategy and solution to be formulated.

By completing a site investigation that is adequate and appropriate to the end use of your site you will be able to manage and control the risks associated with your project.

We offer the following site investigation services:

  • Rotary and cable percussive drilling
  • Trial pitting and trenching
  • Cable percussive boring
  • Dynamic probing windowless sampling
  • Dynamic Probing
  • Specialist rotary drilling and coring
  • Geotechnical and geo-environmental laboratory testing
  • Instrumentation installation and management
  • Long term groundwater and gas monitoring
  • Geotechnical logging by qualified geologists

We can assist with sites of varying complexity and if required we can provide additional services including UXO clearance, GPR surveys, drone surveys, archaeology, LIDAR surveys and ecology. To ensure greatest value we can combine these services into one overall package to provide maximum efficiency.

We provide geotechnical investigation, design and specialist advice services in respect of foundations, basement construction, highways, earth retaining structures, slope stability assessment, cuttings in soil / rock, embankment design, groundwater (dewatering) control and, soil-structure interaction advice.
