Our geotechnical team is well versed in the challenges of working in densely populated urban environments, mountainous terrain and remote northern conditions. We have strong experience in executing challenging site exploration programs and working within important environmental and H&S constraints.

Our site investigation always begins with a detailed desktop review of water well information, air photos, our internal geotechnical database and surficial geology maps. We understand the geomorphology first and then design the site investigation around the findings from this review with due consideration of the proposed development.
