Investigation of and advice regarding the physical characteristics of the soil, foundation design and construction materials

Site Investigation – General:

Site Investigation is all about understanding and reducing risk. In so many cases, important decisions are made based on the information gained through a site investigation. You need to trust that this information will be reliable, accurate and on time.

SURVEY2000 have been undertaking site investigations throughout the Bangladesh for over 10 years. Typical ground investigation might include a desk study, boreholes, CPTs, trial pits, in-situ field testing, geotechnical laboratory testing and contamination testing. This work is coordinated by our technical team, made up Geotechnical Engineers and Engineering Geologists.

Geophysics

We provide surface, borehole and offshore geophysical services as a cost-effective, non-intrusive approach for site investigations. The integration of geophysics with traditional mappings, intrusive sampling and other investigation methods can provide an enhanced understanding of site conditions resulting in reduced risks and lower project costs.
