geotechnical drilling & sampling

Project description

Geotechnical site investigations were planned for a new motorway route between Sibiu and Pitesti cities, Romania. Geotechnical works included drilling and sampling, DPSH and Menard testing, standpipe piezometer and inclinometer installation.

Our assignment

Interra Applications was requested to provide geotechnical drilling services along the projected motorway, close to Pitesti.

Our job was to provide high quality drilling services on a very tight schedule in order to increase increase core recovery and obtain high quality samples. The main issues that needed to be addressed were lack of drilling water and a thick layer of boulders and gravel at the top.

The project had a tight schedule therefore project management skills were an asset for carrying out all the operations in the designated time and costs.
