Soil Investigation

Soil Investigation and Laboratory Testing

Every Project needs a solid foundation on which to be built and we have been providing geotechnical services to do just that. Foundation is the lowest part of a building. It transmits the load of the structure to the soil below.

Therefore the main purposes of a foundation are:

  • To distribute the load from the building over a large area
  • To load the substratum evenly so as to prevent unequal settlement
  • To take the structure sufficiently deep into the ground to prevent overturning Before a foundation is decided, it is necessary to determine the characteristics of the soil at the site of construction.

This is done by conducting soil investigations. Soil mechanics site investigations are conducted to discover the characteristics of the soil at the particular location.

There are different methods of soil investigation. After the soil samples are analyzed, a report is prepared recommending the type of foundation to be used.

We offer a comprehensive coverage of Geotechnical Investigation works in both soil and rock.

We carry out Soil Investigation Services and preliminary foundation designs.
