Our geotechnical reports are designed to satisfy council DA’s and building certificates and to provide engineering properties of the surface and subsurface ground materials. They assess any present or potential risks on the site or those that could occur during the earth works stage of the proposed construction process.
We carry out a wide variety of ground testing techniques and can advise on the most suitable methods for your requirements.
We assess slopes in terms of stability and identify areas of movement or potential movement. We provide advice to stabilise potentially unstable areas. We also carryout stability reports (Prepurchase Reports) prior to the purchase of a property to ensure there are no geotechnical issues. These reports can be a requirement of the lender.
We provide solutions to repair or replace failing or damaged retaining walls.
We can estimate potential settlements for proposed footings and offer advice on the repair of existing footings that have moved.
We provide solutions for drainage issues from ground water seepage and stormwater run off.
We carry out these tests to determine the capacity of the soil to disperse water. The tests are usually requested by a stormwater engineer during the design process of the guttering and down pipes for a building.
We provide advice and procedures to safely clean up and remediate land slides, to restore the slope to a stable condition.
We carry out site classifications (AS2870) to give guidance on footing design.
We conduct preliminary acid sulfate testing and provide acid sulfate management plans if they are required.
