Foundation Investigation

Giving you a solid foundation for your build without the need for an engineer

Jargon-free, easy-to-understand foundation solutions that you can hand straight to your builder.

Do I Need A Foundation Investigation?

If you want to avoid unnecessary delays, costs and structural complications, then yes. Knowing what you’re building on is essential for avoiding problems further down the line. It’s much cheaper to complete one than to need an expensive solution later down the line.

Your building inspector, warranty or insurance company may request a ground investigation. We’ve carried out hundreds of these for this purpose.

What Does A Foundation Investigation Involve?

A foundation investigation is where we attend your site with our own small drilling rig and place around 3-5 holes to 5m depth. Our in-house drillers are very friendly and will talk you through the process when on site.

We then take soil samples and our in-house lab looks at the soil composition to determine the best foundation for your build.

You’ll get your results turned around quickly so that you can get on with building.

Is A Foundation Investigation Disruptive?

No. It’s a minimally intrusive operation conducted by our highly trained, polite professionals. There’s very little mess and the boreholes are backfilled with gravel or bentonite – you’ll be left with a safe and tidy site.
