We are often the first workers on site at the beginning of a project, and we know that we have a responsibility to do things right. On every site we manage, you will see evidence of our commitment to quality, safety, health and the environment.
We offer the following site investigation services…
- Trial pitting and trenching
- Windowless sampling - with standard and modular rigs
- Dynamic sampling
- Cable percussive boring
- Rotary drilling
- Hand-held windowless sampling and probing
- Geotechnical and geoenvironmental laboratory testing
- Groundwater and gas monitoring
Some projects call for a more specialised approach. We’ve used helicopters, cranes and cherrypickers to access a wide variety of difficult-to-reach areas: from the tops of dams to the Thames river wall in central London. We love rising to the challenge and solving problems for our clients.
We have also invested in specialist machinery to help us tackle a range of conditions. Our Hägglund hybrid rig’s low ground pressure makes it perfect for environmentally sensitive sites like mudflats and beaches.
Meanwhile, our CE-marked modular rig is ideal for use in enclosed spaces. It can be broken down into parts in just 10 minutes, meaning it can be transported quickly and easily between borehole locations. This has enabled us to reach places where others can’t, and has been especially useful on the UK rail network.
Out on the water, we have carried out a number of projects using jack-up platforms, barges and pontoons to access river, port or nearshore sites. We have even sent our engineers to assist on drilling ships, and we have considerable experience logging vibrocore samples.
We’re proud of our ability to rise to new challenges, and we are always looking to make the most of new innovations. We work with other specialists to complement our main site investigation works, including surface and downhole geophysics, topographic, and other surveys.
