Site investigations and geophysics

All building and construction activities require reliable and relevant information about the ground conditions to assess, plan, and design developments, and construction activities and to conduct stability evaluations.

Insufficient ground investigations can lead to the wrong choice of foundation solution, incorrect foundation design, unfortunate and dangerous execution of foundation work, and damage to neighboring buildings and the new building itself. It can also lead to oversized and, thus, unnecessarily expensive foundations.

Geophysics - geology - geotechnics

We use professional complementary expertise and advanced equipment and methods to map the subsurface

  • basic geophysical surveys
  • geological knowledge and understanding
  • drilling, sampling, and simple and advanced soundings
  • hydrogeological field methods and groundwater mapping
