Geotechnical Supervision: Securing the Project's Foundation

Geotechnical supervision involves the ongoing monitoring and evaluation during the construction process itself, building on the initial assessment provided by a geotechnical preliminary investigation. This supervision ensures that all geotechnical aspects identified during the preliminary phase align with actual conditions as construction or infrastructure projects progress.

Why is it necessary?
Soil conditions can vary, even over short distances. Without careful geotechnical supervision, unforeseen complications may arise that could affect the project's safety, budget, and timeline. Supervision enables the early identification and correction of any potential discrepancies or deviations from expected conditions.

How is geotechnical supervision conducted?
In addition to thorough visual inspections of the soil in excavations, advanced methods are used, such as:

  • Vane tests: Primarily used in cohesive soil to measure soil strength and consistency.
  • Light falling weight deflectometer tests: Used in granular soils to determine the soil's load-bearing capacity.
  • Troxler testing: An essential method for assessing the compactness and moisture content of fill soil.
