Geotechnical Consultancy Services

Bay of Plenty & Coromandel Geotechnical Testing & Consultancy Services

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. Hand held testing is carried out by us. Where a Cat 1 Geotechnical engineer is not required, we also work with Kirk Roberts Consulting Engineers Ltd. In the Coromandel area, we work in with Glenn Gille CPEng Geotechnical Engineer from Ormiston Associates where their expertise is required.

When undertaking geotech testing, some of the tools we use (from left to right) include:

  • Scala Penetrometer lifter.
  • Shear Vane, for testing cohesive soils like clays.
  • Auger for sampling soils along the test depths.
  • Scala Penetrometer for testing granular soils like sands.

Geotech work completed in Hahei for the garage and house addition foundations, plus stormwater detention and disposal design. PS4 site observations of the foundations was also done by Actionplans Ltd.

Pauanui home Actionplans Ltd completed the geotech testing for the foundations, plus the design of stormwater disposal to soakpits.
