To meet the increasing demands for land use due to rapid population and industrial growth- construction projects, such as buildings, roads, tunnels, train stations, water ways etc., are carried out at an accelerated rate. TÜV SÜD’s geotechnical engineering services thus plays a key role in every construction project.
Geotechnical engineering services looks after the infrastructure’s overall energy utilization process, energy efficiency effectiveness, waste management system, underground resource design etc. Without relevant geotechnical engineering support, construction projects will face serious lapses on infrastructure quality, stability, safety, reliability and lifespan.
TÜV SÜD’s comprehensive geotechnical engineering services support our customers during the initial stages of their construction projects. Our team provides support on the type of techniques and tests for the customer's project type, building structure and the natural environment conditions.
Foundation is a major part of any infrastructure and it usually starts from below the ground. It is a balance
between the infrastructure weight above ground, the compressive underground stresses and soil bearing capacity.
Our foundation engineering services include:
- Check for foundation failures
- Offer soil improvement schemes
- Detect and repair bedrock cavities
- Detect and repair road construction sinkholes
- Develop groundwater systems
Geotechnical investigation is the examination of an infrastructure’s soil and geologic conditions such as soil compressibility via onsite explorations, mappings, samplings and field sample testing etc. It is critical during the infrastructure design stage.
Our geotechnical investigation services include checks on:
- slope stability
- dam foundation condition
- high rise building foundation condition
- deep basement condition
- large tank farm and container yard situated in soft soil areas
- canal conditions in swampy areas
- railway subsidence in cavity-prone limestone areas
Our team has the experience relating to deep excavations, land reclamation, quarry site assessments, land drainage, landslides, resource mining, marine structure building, failure studies etc.
Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services
Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring part and parcel of evaluating an infrastructure’s construction impacts, overall design and project safety.
It consists of underground and above ground checks including structural deformation monitoring, soil displacement and movement, vibration, noise, load, strain within earth, rock and concrete.
Our geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services include:
- Review solutions for slope and soil improvement
- Inspect embankment foundation condition, deep excavation, tunnel, buildings, ground anchor conditions
- Implement large diameter test piles
