Landslide Investigation

At SITE Geotechnical, we are members of Engineers Australia. We have combined experience of 23 years, so our customers can count on our expert, efficient team for comprehensive landslide investigation.

Our landslide investigation involves determining safety and hazards. The engineering appraisal of slopes which are safe, and stable depend upon an adequate understanding of the nature of the ground.

Common geological hazards that should be considered by the designer include landslide, earthquake, reactive or expansive soils and limestone terrain. The likelihood and consequences of hazards may be assessed through desktop studies and geological mapping, but more commonly through previous experience of similar hazards (particularly if problems have been experienced with nearby projects).

A detailed landslide investigation should assist in the following:

  • designing foundations for structures  
  • determining the requirements for and design of earth retaining structures
  • designing subsurface drainage systems and special de-watering systems to intercept and direct ground water to the surface drainage systems
  • determining the requirement for, and designing of, ground improvement works
  • predicting the magnitude and rate of settlement of embankments
  • assessing feasibility and producing cost estimates of alternatives

    Thank you for getting back to us so quickly, we really appreciate it. We are really excited to utilise option 5 as the location of our AGs are now shallower within our pavement and hopefully we will encounter no/minimal clashes with existing shallow services. Thank you again and we look forward to working with the team in the future.
