Geo-Technical Investigation


Geotechnical Investigation

The division comprises qualified and experienced team of geotechnical engineers, site supervisors, lab personnel aided with sophisticated equipment and NABL accredited fully fledged soil mechanics laboratory to cater to the needs of ground engineering and related activities.

Activities involved are:

Geotechnical studies for designing super/substructures through borehole exploration, in-situ testing, geophysical exploration etc.

Identification of problematic soils and remedial measures

Slope stability analysis, recommendation for ground improvement techniques

Testing of soil/rock samples in the laboratory to determine its physical and engineering properties

Analysing all field and laboratory data to evaluate safe bearing capacity and safe bearing pressure of the soil/rock for given foundation sizes and necessary recommendations for open/pile foundation design/construction.

Testing and analysis of sub grade and sub base materials for roads and runways, suitability tests of material for embankments, clay liners for engineered landfills, fill material for reinforced earth retaining walls etc.
