Geotechnical

FMG Engineering’s Geotechnical Division has been in the business of ground investigation for over 40 years. During that time we have developed a specialised knowledge with regard to highly reactive soils including being fully aligned with AS2870 (2011).

Our geotechnical services have been used on projects including mining infrastructure, major multi-story buildings, infrastructure projects, industrial and commercial buildings, housing developments, airfields, dams, wind farms and pavements.

We have the knowledge and capability to investigate and report on all projects from residential site classifications to major commercial and industrial developments.

Our extensive capabilities include

  • Preliminary geotechnical site investigations
  • Full geotechnical site investigations
  • On-site and laboratory measurement of soil properties
  • Footing design and investigation
  • Retaining wall design
  • Pavement design and investigation
  • Forensic investigations (reasons for failure)
