About this event

This one day training course will give you the confidence to scope and specify the right ground investigation for your project.

At the conclusion you will be able to:

  • Specify the right Ground Investigation
  • Ensure you get the maximum geotechnical information from the investigation
  • Identify the main geotechnical risks

Emphasis is placed on practical and cost-effective solutions to minimise geotechnical risk, provide key information and forewarn of potential problems.

The importance of desk study information is discussed as a means of allowing potential problems to be identified prior to fieldwork and the conceptual ground model is then proposed from which key issues can be assessed and an investigation strategy developed. The need for thorough planning of investigations is discussed and the available investigation techniques outlined and their relative merits and limitations assessed.

Highly interactive, this training course includes reference to case studies and workshops using real data to highlight key issues and develop a hands-on understanding of this crucial, but often misunderstood aspect of construction.
