    Geotechnical Investigations and Site Characterization. Geotechnical investigations form the base of a well-designed project. From small residential to heavy industrial foundations, private riverbank lots to public riverfronts, small irrigation ponds to hydroelectric dams, pedestrian bridges to multi-lane overpasses, our team will gather and analyze the geotechnical information needed to. Hoek and Palmieri – Geotechnical risks on large civil engineering projects Page 4 In contrast, the information available from site investigations for dam foundations, underground power-houses and similar sites of limited extent is generally much more comprehensive than that for long tunnels.

    Lesotho LHDA Dam Investigations - Oxbow and Senqu The project, which incorporates a geotechnical investigation and Lugeon testing for a potential dam site is located at two remote sites, one at Senqu B and the other at Oxbow. The scope of engineering seismology includes geotechnical site investigations for buildings and engineering infrastructures, such as dams, levees, bridges, and tunnels, landslide and active-fault investigations, seismic microzonation, and geophysical investigations of historic buildings.

    An important basis for the planning and construction of building and infrastructure projects (comprising various types of structures as foundation, excavation pit, land reclamation, beach nourishment etc.) is the knowledge of the ground conditions. For this purpose, the geotechnical investigation with its respective services shall be carried out. Geotechnical challenges that could influence the development of your site can include geological environment, ground and groundwater conditions and seismicity. Additional challenges may originate from your particular equipment and infrastructure, eg. vibrating mill foundations, machinery with limited tolerance for settlement and other design constraints for structural and operational purposes.
