Geotechnical Engineering Design needs to consider the properties of the ground (soil / rock) and the impact infrastructure will have on the surface and sub-surface. Having carried out or participated in over one thousand (1000) Civil & Geotechnical Engineering, projects, we are experienced specialists on providing geotechnical engineering design services for infrastructure projects, property developments and dams / tunnels construction.
We use a range of analytical techniques to identify the specific geotechnical design requirements and specifications needed for construction activities. Advanced numerical technology such as finite element analysis and boundary element analysis is followed up by methods that check and verify our analyses to provide accurate and reliable data to our clients. Where needed, we develop new methods or modify existing analytical methods to improve the quality of the solutions we develop for our clients.
Some of the areas we specialise in, include:
Geotechnical Site Investigation
Planning and implementing in major projects concerning Foundations, Tunnels, Roads & Railways, Underground Works & Dams, etc.
Analysis and Design of Specific & Complicated Foundation Systems.
Deep Earth Retention Systems & Slope Stability Analysis & Stabilisation
Deep Anchored Piled Retaining Walls & Systems (Analysis, Design, Detailing).
Design, Construction and Supervision of Soil and Rock slopes and excavations. Slope stability analyses problems and Earth Retaining structures. Slope Stabilization techniques.
Geotechnical Ground Improvement
