Soil Testing

Protest Engineering has a qualified and experienced soil testing team, and our clients benefit from their extensive knowledge.

Soil testing plays a crucial part in making sure your building project is a success, and more often than not, site classification is a compulsory first step in the building process. Soil analysis is important for a few reasons:

·         Your foundations are only as strong as the soil you build on

·         The soil types at your project will determine the materials and designs used in your build

·         Your site classification is used by builders and engineers to plan building site preparation and provide site specific information to assist in appropriate foundation design

A site investigation report will generally include soil classification, soil condition, water table analysis, ground slope analysis, trees, shrubs and organic material on the site, service trenches and water run-off.

It’s crucial to understand your soil structure in the planning stages of your build or foundations. Working with experienced soil testing and site classification consultants is the best way to do this.

A site investigation or classification report is, more often than not, a compulsory first step in the building process. Soil testing plays an important part in making sure your building project is a success which may include:

  • A new build (ranging from residential dwellings to commercial warehouses);
  • Extensions/renovations including swimming pools
  • Landslide investigations
  • Retaining wall investigations

soil test will generally include boreholes and insitu testing to determine your soil material types and subsurface conditions including groundwater (if encountered) and will comment on site ground slope, trees, shrubs and organic material on the site, service trenches and water run-off.
