Ground Investigation

IGSL are highly experienced at managing, executing and delivering ground investigation projects. Projects of up to €3M have been successfully completed.

Geotechnical sampling & in-situ testing services include:
  • Cable Too boring
  • Rotary drilling
  • Dynamic probing
  • Window sampling
  • Trial pitting
  • Slit trenching
  • Soakaway testing
  • Groundwater monitoring (data loggers)
  • Permeability & Packer testing
  • Pump testing
  • Gas monitoring
  • Plate bearing tests
  • In-situ density (nuclear gauge)
  • TRL Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP)

Our rotary capability includes specialist coring in boulder clay and variably weathered bedrock units using Geobor sampling methods. This system utilises polymer gel flush with semi rigid core liner and produces 102mm diameter cores. Geobor coring has proven to be extremely successful in achieving high quality samples in boulder clay deposits.
