RSA Geotechnics have over thirty years experience providing geotechnical and geoenvironmental consultancy services to the residential building industry. We provide a range of site investigation and engineering solutions from simple small domestic extensions to complex large scale housing developments.
Investigations into the geological conditions and previous use of a site to obtain a knowledge of its engineering, environmental and contamination characteristics are a fundamental part of the planning of safe, economic and sustainable future use of the site. Our range of geotechnical and environmental assessments and site investigation services used for residential developments may include:
- desk study and risk assessment
- design of suitable intrusive investigations
- insitu and laboratory testing
- factual and interpretative reports
- tree/clay/foundation interaction
- soakaway drainage and soil infiltration assessment
- ground gas risk assessment
The design and scope of the ground investigations may be carried out using a variety of techniques including trial pitting, window sampling, cable percussion drilling and rotary boring.
Our reports can provide detailed recommendations for foundation design, basement construction, pavement design, and advice about preventative measures related to ground gases and soakaway drainage solutions.
