Geotechnical engineering division priority is to study the behaviour of earth materials, study of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to
investigate Sub surface conditions and materials to determine the relevant physical, mechanical and chemical properties of materials
to evaluate stability of natural slopes and soil deposits, to assess risks posed by site conditions, to design earthworks and structure
foundations and monitor site conditions, earthwork and foundation construction.
For every client our project team begins with a review of project needs to define the required material properties. Then follows a site investigation of soil, rock, fault distribution and bedrock properties on and below the area of interest to determine their engineering properties including how they will interact with, on or in a proposed construction. Site investigations are done to gain an understanding of the area in or on which the engineering will take place. Investigations include the assessment of the risk to humans, property and the environment from natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, sinkholes, soil liquefaction, debris flows and rock falls. Then we determine and design the type of foundations, earthworks, pavement sub-grades requirement for the intended man-made structures to be built.
Foundations are designed and constructed for structures of various sizes such as roads, high-rise buildings, bridges, medium to large commercial buildings, drainage siphons, culvert, nala-bunding and smaller structures etc. Foundations design for built-structure, retaining structures, earthworks measures are prepared by experienced engineers.
