Geotechnical survey

Geotechnical research leads to appropriate foundation advice

There is a lot to consider in the implementation of a building or earthworks. For example, the geotechnical soil studies. Soil drilling and surveys provide us with information about soil composition and the depth of load-bearing strata. Thanks to our years of experience in the Caribbean region we have a great deal of knowledge of local soil and conditions. This represents a reliable and cost-effective research design for our client. We then determine the various physical properties of the soil in our laboratory on the basis of which we are able to provide appropriate (foundation) advice.

The geotechnical department specializes in:

  • Machine soil drilling (augur and core drills) and sampling of soil
  • Geotechnical field tests: Standard Penetration Test (SPT) and Heavy blow probe test (DPT-H)
  • Soil mechanics laboratory research (including classification, particle size distribution, Atterberg limits, volumic mass and compaction tests)
  • Foundation advice
  • Geotechnical support in the completion of infrastructure or architectural projects
  • Guidance on the installation and testing of ground anchors
  • Geohydrological research and advice
  • Geophysical research
  • Installation of groundwater monitoring systems

  • … There was a lot of pressure to do the survey quickly and have reliable results at short notice, because the project had to start very quickly. CEGE was very quick-witted and had performed a lot of work in a very professional way and in a very short timeframe. The results are reliable and useful …
