Geo-technical Investigations

SECO is an established provider of onshore & offshore Geo-technical services. Our uncompromising focus on quality, health and safety combined with our flexible approach allows us to consistently deliver tailor-made engineering solutions.

We offer clients support throughout the entire life cycle of their projects, providing critical Geo-technical data and analyses to accurately quantify ground conditions of their project sites.

Geo-technical services, include:

Piezo-cone Penetration Testing (CPTu)

CPTu is a in situ testing method used to determine the Geo-technical engineering properties of soils & assessing subsurface stratigraphy, relative density, strength & equilibrium groundwater pressures.

Disturbed soil sampling

Disturbed soil sample is the most common method of soil sampling. There are several techniques of soil sampling. The choice of the most appropriate way depends on the purpose of the sampling & the subsequent use of the samples.

Soil laboratory testing

Our soil testing programmes are crucial to projects with great sensitivity to soil behaviour - high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, power plants, mines, levees, offshore platforms and tunnels, for example.

Ground resistivity measurements

Soil resistivity testing is the process of measuring a volume of soil to determine the conductivity of the soil. Soil resistivity testing is the single most critical factor in electrical grounding design.

Undisturbed soil sampling

Undisturbed soil core samples are taken to determine many basic soil physical properties. The relative volumes of the solid, liquid and gaseous phases can be determined either by mass or by volume.

Vane shear testing

Vane shear testing is one of the most common in-situ methods for the estimation of the undrained shear strength of the soil. Excellent for profiling shear strength when used in combination with the CPTu or full flow penetrometer.

Seismic Cone Penetration Testing (SCPTu)

Used in the determination of low strain in-situ compression (P) and shear (S) wave velocities. The determination of P-wave and S-wave arrival times from the recorded time series is of importance to the evaluation of seismic wave velocities.
