Geotechnical

We carry out geotechnical investigations to obtain subsurface information on the physical properties of soil and rock. This enables geotechnical appraisal, design and advice for foundations, earthworks and stability.

The LK Group delivers technical expertise and practical geotechnical solutions that will see you through the feasibility, cost planning and construction phases of your projects. Obtaining good quality geotechnical information from the start of your project will allow an informed approach to the design and result in time and cost savings.

Our experienced technical team delivers reports that will provide design and options for new structures, slope stability, foundations, ground improvements and remedial works.
