We undertake geotechnical and building specific soil site investigations to assess their suitability for building on and for design of foundation systems.
We collaborate with a number of preferred CPEng Geotechnical Engineers and bring them when their expertise is required, such as for liquefaction assessment or slope stability assessment. In the Bay of Plenty, if liquefaction assessment is necessary, we work in with Cat 1 CPEng Geotechnical Engineer Marianne from ICE Construction Ltd and Perry Geotech Ltd for deep CPT Geotechnical testing.
