  • Geotechnical appraisal of a site:

    Examination of natural features and study of geomorphology of a site is the most important and effective tools for the engineers to understand the possible behaviour of the sub-surface under the new loading brought about by human activities at the sites, both on long term as well as short term projections. It needs experienced eyes and study of the past records and publications, if available. Once the site is studied it is possible to chalk out the details of investigations to be carried-out for any project. First-hand knowledge of the site also helps in preparing an authentic and realistic geotechnical report as well.

  • Preparation and interpretation of geotechnical reports:

    A comprehensive geotechnical investigation report can be generated on the basis of field work carried out by boring and sampling/ field testing agency. This report will bring out the realistic sub-surface condition of the site along with recommended design soil/rock parameters. If required, recommendations can be given on the most suitable type of foundation system for the proposed structure at the concerned site. It should be borne in mind however, that it is strongly recommended that the geotechnical engineer writing the report should visit site preferably at the time of field work to have a first-hand feel of the site so that his report can be more representative of the site conditions.

  • Advices on the design of foundation:

    We work closely with our clients engineers and help them to understand the expected behaviour of sub soil under the proposed loading and also logically arrive at the most effective foundations system to be adopted. Sometimes the most suitable systems are not available at a particular area and then, the best options are put forward for adoption. We help in designing the foundation as well.

  • Cost control of deep foundation by in-depth studies of site condition and optimizing the foundation design:

    Often the deep foundation system blindly follows the recommendations given in the geotechnical reports where, more often than not, the factor safety as well as adoption of design soil parameters is much on the conservative side. This results in considerable additional spending on foundation. We help in saving this cost through a better quality assurance checks, site training of supervising personnel and analysing of load test data. This is indeed a decision any client should be wise enough to take and save large fund as well as time of completion along with assuring the quality of product that is all constructed under ground.

  • Forensic Geotechnology to investigate causes of distress of foundation/structure:

    We are often called at site to do trouble-shooting/ distress remediation at site. We undertake such assignments with utter care and investigative mind. The source of the trouble is sought out by studying the site condition as well as document pertaining to it. Thereafter the remedial measure is recommended keeping in mind the resources available or possible to be mobilized at the particular site.

  • Investigation and design of drainage schemes and flood control measures:

    It is often found that due to natural or, sometimes, due to man-made reasons the drainage of surface run offs from within the plant sites or flooding from external sources during monsoon becomes a serious problem. It not only causes huge losses but can endanger human lives at times. We investigate and design remedial measures by collecting relevant data and investigation. This will invariably involve extensive site visits by senior experts for understanding the terrain and collecting relevant data for analysis.
