Before the structure can be built it is considered good practice and a legal requirement of most local authorities in the UK to conduct a ground investigation at the site, once planning permission has been granted. Ground investigations, also referred to as site investigations, enable geotechnical data to be gathered for foundation design purposes to allow cost effective and efficient development of the site. They can also identify the presence of any voids or abandoned mine workings beneath the site. Various intrusive drilling techniques, such as shell and auger and rotary drilling, are used to recover and test the underlying soil and rock at the site.
Once recovered soil and rock samples are subjected to laboratory based geotechnical tests to further aid foundation design parameters. With our expert technicians, we thrive on working with our clients and getting the messy job clean, we offer many services to meet your demands.
