Streval has over a decade of experience in Ground Investigation. Working closely with structural engineers to analyse and help you understand your work site to confirm whether work can safely proceed.
Ground Investigation is vital in the development process. It obtains critical information that dictates the viability of your project. Or proves whether you plan to build on hazardous ground.
Streval works alongside you to understand your requirements and exceed your expectations.
Our Ground Investigation services are headed by experienced and highly knowledgeable surveyors, assessors and engineers. This guarantees accurate results and safe working conditions.
Our Soil & Ground Investigation Services
The DCP uses a 6.8 kg steel mass falling 50.8 cm that strikes the anvil to cause penetration of a 3.8 cm diameter cone (45° vertex angle) that has been seated in the bottom of a hand augered hole.Find Out More
We offer on site plate bearing/CBR testing for clients wanting to evaluate or design flexible pavement components and for other applications like unsurfaced roads.Find Out More
Plate load test is a field test, which is performed to determine the ultimate bearing capacity of soil and the probable settlement under a given load.Find Out More
We receive many enquiries for projects where the ground bearing capacity of a slab needs evaluating due to refurbishment or changes to the structure and loading profile on the ground bearing slab.Find Out More
The shear vane test is a method of measuring the undrained shear strength of a cohesive soil.Find Out More
What is a Ground Investigation?
Ground Investigation is an umbrella term for a series of assessments that determine the viability of a surface for construction. It tests the structural integrity of sub-surface materials, their strengths and weaknesses and provides a detailed report of their properties.
What are the Methods of Soil Investigation?
Several testing methods can be employed in a soil investigation. Each test serves a slightly different purpose. But all help to provide a comprehensive and detailed overview of the properties of the soil. Some of these tests include DCP, California Bearing, Plate Load Testing, Ground Bearing Investigations, and Shear Vane Testing.
Why is Soil Investigation Necessary?
Soil Investigation provides data that proves whether construction can safely proceed on your chosen construction site. If you begin work on a structurally unsound site, you run the risk of creating an unsafe work environment for your staff and those surrounding the site. Neglecting a Soil Investigation can result in sinkholes, landslides, and structurally unsound and even dangerous buildings.
