Through our diverse drilling solutions, we have extensive experience in delivering geotechnical services at the highest standards in quality and safety.
Geotechnical Investigations are performed to obtain data on physical characteristics of soil/rock around a site to design earthworks & proposed structures, or to support the repair of distressed earthworks/structures caused by subsurface issues. structures include railways, tunnels, dams, bridges, buildings, excavations, box cuts, roads, power stations, borrow materials, void filling and tunnel and dam grouting. We boast 80 geotechnical drilling machines in the field supported by highly-trained, experienced operators & maintenance staff.

Lesotho Dam Investigation
The project, which incorporates a geotechnical investigation and Lugeon testing for a potential dam site is located at two sites, one at Senqu B and the other at Oxbow.
East London Harbour Quay Wall
The project required that we drill 6 holes (HQ3 size), with SPT’s, Shelbey’s and Shearvane testing, half a meter out into the sea from the Quay edge.
