Environmental Drilling
Always able to provide our clients with a full range of geotechnical capabilities GEO Investigate are capable of drilling monitoring wells as well as other environmental drilling services.
 
Falling Weight Deflectometers (FWDs)
Falling Weight Deflectometers (FWDs) are used to measure pavement deflections in response to a stationary dynamic load, similar to a passing wheel load. The data obtained are used to evaluate the structural capacity of pavements for research, design, rehabilitation, and pavement management purposes.
 
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
GPR utilises electromagnetic waves to penetrate the ground and measures various properties of the reflecting waves to detect anomalies and assess properties of the subsurface soil. This data is collected continuously as the vehicle is driven down roads at normal driving speeds.
The main benefit of the GPR data is being able to literally see the changes in the structural section for long stretches of road without having to take cores.
 
Personnel & Equipment
We have developed and modified our drilling rigs and equipment to provide the best geotechnical drilling solutions for our clients.  With a focus on outcomes our people and equipment are keys to our success. Through stringent servicing of our equipment and continuous research and development of new technologies, GEO Investigate is confident that our equipment is well matched to the task.
