Soil Testing

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Before any building design is finalised it is generally a requirement and also good to know that the soil conditions are like under the surface. With some sites it may already be known, however in the majority of cases specific testing must be carried out.

What are they looking for?

By drilling below the surface and taking core samples the Geo technical consultant can determine the bearing pressure of the soil (how well it can support weight), the permeability of the soil (how well it drains) and the soil types through the layers (sand, clay, gravel, rock).

This information is then used by your structural engineer to determine the footing size and type for the building and for unserviced sites (those requiring on site waste water disposal), the required system size and type to take and treat all kitchen, bathroom and toilet waste water.
