What is a Geotechnical Investigation and Report?
A Geotechnical Investigation and Report provides specific information on subsurface soil, rock, and water conditions of the land. These results provide recommendations on the design and construction of the project to an engineer and are often required when lodging a development application.
When is a Geotechnical Investigation and Report required?
This investigation is essential as the report will provide;
- Vital information during the design and construction of the building
- Recommendations on any earthwork such as land sloping or compaction
- Adequate review of constructed building’s geotechnical features, such as foundations, retaining walls and earthwork
- If any issues arise after completion of the project this report can help resolving claims
A geotechnical report is often required where there are concerns that the soil cannot safely support a structure. In addition, geotechnical investigation can also reveal issues which could be problematic in an earthquake, such as soils which are subject to liquefaction. Without a geotechnical investigation by a licensed geotechnical engineer, any construction could potentially be extremely dangerous.
