It is necessary to have a good understanding of the mechanical properties of a building or construction site including roads, railway tracks, bridges, dam sites, tunnels, buildings and open pits. The mechanical properties of the area influence the design and the actual method used in a building project (e.g. blasting vs. tunneling machine).
terratec Geophysical Services provides a wide range of geophysical measurements from surface to borehole, enabling us to acquire information on the properties of the area such as the predominant orientation of geological structures, the amount of rock fracturing or the mechanical properties of the area.
These geophysical measurements are important tools to assess the risks during the planning phases as well as aiding in the optimisation of the building and construction processes within a certain area.
