In construction projects, geotechnical aspects are decisive for the safety, cost efficiency and durability of a structure – especially because risks associated with the construction ground are the responsibility of the building owner. Work on the construction ground therefore requires comprehensive and proactive planning. The general conditions, such as spatial restrictions, are becoming increasingly complicated.
Construction ground models
With the help of project-specific exploration and probing methods as well as over 50 years of experience in these specialist areas, we are able to overcome knowledge gaps and develop construction ground models which include all parameters relevant for the calculations.
Our engineers would be pleased to support you in all necessary dimensioning tasks, from securing the excavation pit to overall stability analyses and 3D deformation calculations. Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of material properties, we are able to optimise calculations from the perspective of both geology and structural requirements.
During the construction phase, we can accompany your project on site and advise planners and building owners on all questions concerning geology, hydrogeology and geotechnics.
If monitoring of possible movements during the excavation and construction phases is required, we can install a complete construction site monitoring system, interpret the measured values, and set up an alarm system on request.
