The following are examples of residential projects in which Soil and Rock Consultants provided geotechnical input.  This typically included investigation, design, construction observation and final certification;

Ground Improvement

Location:

Sydenham, Christchurch

Overview:

Soil & Rock Consultants were engaged to produce a ground improvement design report and carry out inspections during the ground improvement process in which over 500 piles were driven to 5m depth using TTT Products Christchurch Ltd timber piles.  Soil & Rock Consultants recommended “closely spaced timber piles” as the ground improvement measure to resist lateral spreading and liquefaction potential following the Christchurch earthquake sequence. The piles were installed by Markovina Pile Driving South Island Ltd.

Buckley Avenue, Hobsonville

Location:

Proposed Retirement Village, Buckley Avenue, Hobsonville

Overview:

Soil & Rock Consultants were engaged to undertake a geotechnical site investigation for the proposed retirement village at Buckley Ave, Hobsonville.

Clark Road, Hobsonville

Location:

Residential Subdivision at Clark Road, Hobsonville

Overview:

Soil & Rock Consultants were to undertake a geotechnical site investigation for the proposed residential subdivision located between Clarks Road and Morrison Drive. The principal objectives of our investigation are to determine ground and groundwater conditions on the site so that recommendations with regard to land stability, foundation and retaining wall design can be made and geotechnical constraints to the proposed development be identified.

Helena Bay, Otara Bay

Location:

Helena Bay Estate, Main House and Villas – Helena Bay

Overview:

Soil & Rock Consultants carried out a geotechnical assessment of the site where it was proposed to undertake a comprehensive residential development. The purpose of this assessment was to investigate subsoil conditions, assess slope stability and provide an opinion with regard with to confirming the selected building platforms were acceptable.
