Geophysical Survey Services Consultants & Contractors:-

Geophysical surveys are a cost-effective survey technique used to obtain non destructive engineering and environmental information from the sub-surface. Geophysical surveys are applicable to investigations of brownfield sites, contaminated land, landfill sites, wind farm projects, pavements, mineshafts, ordnance, archaeology, concrete structures and geology plus other problem sites.

As UK based geophysical survey consultants we advise on:-GPR - Ground penetrating radar surveys using the SIR3000. Pavement evaluation, void & cavity location

  • Applicability and best practice
  • We design geophysical surveys for tender documentation
  • Expert witness

As geophysical survey contractors we also undertake:-

  • Site investigation - Ground penetrating radar (GPR), EM, conductivity, resistivity imaging, magnetometry, gradiometry, gravity, seismics, soil resistivity and earth resistance testing, soil thermal resistivity testing
  • Geophysical surveys of landfill, soil resistivity / earth testing for wind farm projects, illegal landfill location, brownfield characterisaton, UXO, underground storage tanks, foundations, contaminated land, pollution depth to rockhead, solution features & karst
  • Non-intrusive structural investigations - concrete & masonary bridges, reinforcement mapping, concrete chimney stacks & flues, tendon ducts, concrete slabs, location of voids & cavities
  • Geophysical survey data interpretation
  • Quality reporting tailored to our clients requirements

Engineering and Environmental monitoring of structures and ground:-

Monitor engineering and environmental information from your office! Using data loggers and on site computers connected to sensors including strain gauges, load cells, displacement transducers, inclinometers and piezometers, we design and install systems that provide:-

  • Short to long term logging of structures and ground - bridges, lifts, towers, slope stability, water levels, building movement.
  • High and low speed logging - frequency and event dependant
  • Data viewable  on the web via a standard internet browser - "Structure to web"
  • Alerts and warnings via e-mail or SMS
  • Data storage and customised reporting

Vibration and Noise :-

  • Independent attended on-site monitoring of noise and vibration for UK compliance.
  • Full service from monitoring to reporting.
