GEOTECHNICAL STUDIES

Geoterrain Nigeria Limited has the capability to efficiently obtain information on the physical properties of the soil and rock around a site. These properties are used to design earthworks and foundations for the proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions. The objectives of our subsurface investigation are to determine the Physical, mechanical, sequence and nature of the subsurface strata (geologic regime) and also to determine groundwater conditions (hydrologic regime). Geoterrain, towards meeting these objectives, use state of the art technology to carry out soil investigation and analysis. This has enabled us to efficiently perform in-situ testing of soil and also collect quality soil and water samples for laboratory testing. We also use geophysical methods such as Ground Penetrating Radar survey (GPR), Electrical Resistivity Tomography ERT, Vertical Electric Sounding-VES and Electromagnetic Conductivity using Very Low Frequency VLF- EM) to obtain subsurface data about a site.

Our multidisciplinary team consisting of engineers, geologists, hydro geologist and environmental scientist have many years of experience in conducting field investigations, such as

  • Cone Penetration Testing (CPT)
  • Borehole drilling and logging (Wire Line Logging, Supervision and management, Petrophysical and Borehole Imaging)
  • Monitoring well installation
  • Seabed sampling
  • Spud Can Analysis
  • Seabed sampling
  • Sand search
  • Buried infrastructure mapping using geophysical tools
  • Sieve analysis
  • Sedimentation testing
  • Atterberg Limits test
  • Triaxial shear Test
  • Material testing
