Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring, along with geo-hazard assessments, play a role in safeguarding assets and infrastructure. Properly planned geotechnical investigations are, along with monitoring programmes, of paramount importance in identifying potential hazards and risks. Geotechnical monitoring provides clients with this information over the course of time, tracking and assessing changes to an asset or the condition of the surface/subsurface where the asset is located.
Geophysical investigations are used to determine the physical characteristics of soil, rock or other materials for the purposes of both engineering and environmental projects. The results of these geophysical investigations will aid in a project’s planning, design, development and construction phases. Detailed geophysical investigations reduce lost time and cost overruns.
