Geotechnical Investigations: Quality of data vs cost

This event is at 8am BST (UK) which is 5pm AEST



Foundations & below ground construction represents a sizeable part of a project’s budget and optimising this aspect of the design relies on having quality soil investigation data and advice.

Francis Williams, co-founder of Ground & Water Ltd will discuss geotechnical investigation techniques, rig-types, physical size & method of operation, the quality of samples obtained and data they produce, the relative budget-cost of each and the type of project that would require each method.
