Geotechnical laboratory testing is an integral part of all geotechnical investigations and geotechnical design.
With our own in house facility STEYN-WILSON GEOTECHNICAL being only the second SANAS Accredited Geotechnical Laboratory in South Africa, quality can now be guaranteed.
Our geotechnical investigations are performed by Technologists, Geologists and trained Technicians to obtain information on the physical properties of soil and rock around a site for proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions.
A geotechnical investigation will include surface exploration and subsurface exploration of a site. Sometimes, geophysical methods are used to obtain data about sites. Subsurface exploration usually involves soil sampling and laboratory tests of the soil samples retrieved.
