Soil Investigation

Soil investigation underway in Oxford: works began on three soil investigations to determine the soil type and condition so that suitable piling schemes can be designed for to a number of properties for one of our social housing clients due to the cracking indicating subsidence. Our investigations include camera drainage tests to ensure the drains are in good condition and working correctly, sampling of the soil in a laboratory and recorded soil conditions down to 4.5m’s.
