Geotechnical Investigation

Drilling Off and On Shore

Our aims are to achieve and maintain a high standard in soil investigation. Our working practices meet the highest health and safety requirements, whilst maintaining good productivity and high technical standards.

Equipped with drilling rigs, professionally qualified and experienced engineers, we will ensure that our recommendation for soil investigation meet the standards and expectation and we can mobilize our rigs and drillers to site to obtain quality data for both on shore and of shore.

We have developed extremely safe working practices, which never compromise high productivity and technical standards. Our modern rigs, vehicles and equipment are expertly maintained, calibrated and certified

We offer a wide range of services for all of your geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing, soil testing and drilling needs.


Cone Penetration Testing

The test is performed using a cylindrical penetrometer with a conical tip (cone) penetrating the ground at a constant rate. Using CPT rigs, our professional engineering can take soil samples at a specified depth.
It gives information on land-based rigs, sea-bed platforms, underwater vehicles and vessels.

The results from a cone penetration test can in principle be used to evaluate:

  • Stratification
  • Soil type
  • Soil density and in-situ stress conditions
  • Shear strength parameters.

PDA, Down hole, Seismic, Resistivity

Our aims to provide quality testing methods and analysis techniques not only for testing piles but also for revaluation both before, during and post installation of piles. Our client would find these tools helpful in improving quality control and installation of safe and economical piled foundations.

The Pile Driving Analyzer (PDA), Pile Integrity Tester (PIT), Cross-Hole Analyzer (CHAMP) and the signal matching analysis CAPWAP programme serves to verify the integrity, driving stresses, hammer performance and bearing capacity as well as quality and consistency of various pile installations. We also provide vibration and sound monitoring services using the SSU Seismograph during pile installation. This could protect both owners and contractors from potential litigation should adjacent properties be damaged during the course of construction.
