GeoCon offers a full Site Investigation service including Phase 1 Preliminary Site Investigation (Desk Study), Phase 2 Initial Site Investigation, Phase 3 Detailed Site Investigation, Factual & Interpretive Report, and Remediation Strategies.
Here at GeoCon we see our site investigations and ground investigations as an investment. Money spent on a good ground investigation can save money further down the line, foundations wont need to be over engineered, and large volumes of soils may not require removal or remediation.
We see our site investigations as investments and our clients do to. Statistics shows that 80% of problems encountered on construction projects are due to unforeseen ground conditions that could have been avoided if a suitable ground investigation was carried out.
Failure to commission a suitable ground investigation can cause financial costs and costs in lost time far greater than the cost of what the site investigation would have been.
Site Investigation / Ground Investigation is carried out via a combination of the following techniques;
- Hand Pitting, Concrete Coring, Trial Pitting
- Window Sampling, Dynamic Probing
- Cable Percussion Drilling
- Rotary Open Hole Drilling, Rotary Cored Drilling
- Soak Away Testing
- CBR & Plate Load Testing
