Structural Soils (an RSK company) carries out dynamic sampling (or window sampling) using either track-mounted percussive samplers or hand-held equipment. Samples are retrieved in seamless plastic tubes for logging by a suitably qualified engineer. Window sampling is suited to restricted access sites, limited depth contamination investigations, and where disturbance must be kept to a minimum. The track-mounted equipment is also capable of carrying out dynamic probe testing, which is a continuous soil test procedure to enable correlation with relative density and shear strength of strata.
If you are planning any development involving construction, you are likely to require a site investigation. Structural Soils is always pleased to offer advice at an early stage and will provide information on geology, recommended investigation techniques and suggested scopes of work, usually without charge. In return we would expect to be invited to quote or provide a price for the investigation.
