It is usually a council requirement that excavations for foundations are inspected by a geotechnical engineer during construction and prior to pouring the foundations. This is to confirm that the ground conditions are suitable for the foundations. As well as building foundations, a geotechnical engineer may also be required to inspect:
- bored piles
- retaining walls
- hardfill beneath floor slabs
We can provide inspection and certification of all geotechnical related aspects of construction. Certification is usually provided in the form of a Producer Statement – Construction Review (PS4) or a Geotechnical Completion Report. These certifications will be used by Council to provide final sign-off of your building.
