  • Sediment assessments for dredging
  • Drinking, catchment, recycled and desalination water monitoring
  • Occupational/industrial hygiene
  • Waste categorisation

Soil

The quality of the soil on a site plays an important role in construction and agricultural projects. Hence, characteristics of the soil need to be identified to determine its ability to support these activities. Soil testing assesses important aspects such as:

  • Nutrient and contaminated content
  • Composition
  • pH level
  • Strength
  • Density
  • Compaction
  • Plasticity

Construction Projects

  • Determine if the soil can withstand the impacts of the construction project
  • Distinguish the different types of soil and their locations
  • Provide design engineers with relevant soil information
  • Obtain crucial information required to compile technical and safety reports to support planning permissions and license applications
  • Track changes of the soil throughout the construction project

Agricultural Projects

  • Test the fertility (amount and composition of crop nutrients) of the soil
  • Make accurate alterations regarding fertilizer recommendations (to increase yield, reduce costs and reduce pollution)
