Geotechnical Drilling and Its Purpose

Geotechnical drilling is a type of drilling that is performed as a part of a building construction project. The primary purpose of geotechnical drilling is to determine whether or not a site is appropriate for construction. Site analysis is crucial for large construction projects because unsafe soil can trigger structural collapse or cause a dangerous working environment.  Some of the things that geotechnical site investigations can display include:

  • Water Content
  • Soil compression
  • Potential contaminants
  • And more
