Soil Investigation

Land Geotechnical Investigation

 

The primary objective, in Civil Engineering, while designing any structure like Dams, Bridges, Weirs, Buildings etc. is to determine the stratigraphy and pertinent physical properties of the soil and rock underlying the site so that a safe and economical foundation may be designed. It is false economy to attempt to save on site investigations as designs based on assumed or inadequate data can lead to necessity of modification in design during construction.We carry out Land Based Geotechnical Investigation with Rotary method of drilling with Diamond Bits and Double / Triple Tube core barrels in Rock with Hydraulic / Screw feed / Calyx rigs.

Marine Geotechnical Investigation

 

We are providing Marine Soil Investigation by using core drilling rigs mounted on either Jack up Barges, Pontoons, Drum Platforms or Country Craft Floating Platforms depending on the location and water currents. A team of highly qualified & experienced geotechnical engineers and geologists supervises the entire process. We undertake marine investigations for the following projects:

• Bridges Across Rivers and Creeks

• Jetties and Wharfs

• Pipeline projects (both offshore and near shore) and Dredging
