Soil Testing

Brief soils testing and reporting as required by councils for subdivision approval; confirming that a lot is suitable for construction.
Site specific reports to confirm whether a proposed building platform is “good ground” as defined in NZS3604 and appropriate for construction in accordance with this code. Where the soils do not meet these standards, the information gathered may be used by DB Consulting Engineers or others to design specific foundations or ground improvement.

Infiltration testing to determine the permeability of soils for design of on site stormwater disposal as required by councils, this information may also be used for design of rural wastewater (sewerage) systems.

Where soils that are not “good ground” are encountered, often minor improvements will bring the site up to standard at minimal cost.

Efficient turnaround times for soil testing and NZS3604 reports for your building consent applications.
