DETERMINE SCOPE

When proposing, we consider...

PRELIMINARY RESEARCH

  • Plotting the site geology using GPS coordinates (submitted by client or from map research)

  • Geology maps are reviewed to determine the classification of the geology and possible fault lines separating the geologies.

  • Aerial photo studies

FUTURE SITE DEVELOPMENT

  • Commercial or residential

  • Single family or multifamily

  • Single lot or multiple lots

  • Clay soils or rock anticipated

  • Number of stories of structure

  • Planned cut and fill

  • Client expectations and goals​

GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION OPTIONS

  • ​Test Pits: Sites which are obviously rock with outcrops exposed or easily discoverable by shallow test pits, may be investigated using this method.

  • Drilling: When non-uniform or unusual site conditions exist, or when deep clays are anticipated this method is used. 

  • The location and spacing of the subsurface exploration is determined based on all factors considered above.
