We recently undertook a combination of plate load tests and boreholes at a Government facility between Abingdon and Oxford, in Oxfordshire. This was to check the ground bearing capacity to ensure that a planned crane lift had competent strata to work off. The point loads on the crane legs were a maximum of 60T, giving a pressure of 100kN/m2 beneath the spreader plates. We carried out plate bearing tests at the location of each crane foot and a borehole in each location to ensure that no soft...

BS8485:2015 is the British Standard that covers the design and installation of gas protection membranes within new buildings. These guard against carbon dioxide, methane and other gases entering buildings, collecting in poorly ventilated areas and either causing an explosive, toxic or asphyxiation risk. Ground gases can be caused by a wide range of sources; include natural soils, brownfield site contamination or nearby landfill sites or buried waste. Their possible existence is likely to be...

It's quite an experience carrying out plate load tests with a camera in your face and a drone buzzing around your head!!

We recently had a new experience in using a sonic drilling rig for our site investigation for the first time. We had previously drilled with a conventional cable percussion rig, but were unable to progress past 10m below ground level, due to bands of strong mudstone within the ground. A basement swimming pool and gym are being planned at the site, and so, deeper information was required to aid pile design. Unlike the conventional cable percussion rig, which works by dropping heavy weights into...

We can undertake plate load testing if required. This is an in-situ soil test, carried out during site investigations, that is designed to establish soil load/settlement characteristics. The test is carried out either to BS1377 1990:Part 9 or can be undertaken to a specification set out in The Highways Agency HD25/95. The test comprises loading a metal plate using a hydraulic jack and measuring the settlement of the plate using three separate settlement gauges. The loading can either be...

A busman's holiday for Danny, exploring the Lead and Silver mines of Connemara.

We recently completed a ground investigation where we were required to undertake 5m boreholes in the basement of an old nightclub in Surrey. The headroom in the basement was 2.65m and access was via a number of tight corridors and stairs. Ventilation within the basement was poor so electrical drilling equipment was required. We also undertook BRE365 soakaway testing on site, in-situ CBR testing in the adjacent car park and hand dug foundation inspection pits against the outside of the building...
