Location information system (LIS)

The quality of our reporting is enhanced by our in-house “Location Information System” software, containing a database drawn from approximately 100,000 borehole test site locations in Melbourne and Geelong.

Five-point soil sampling for increased accuracy

By soil testing every site and encouraging five-point sampling we achieve the most accurate picture of the soil conditions; minimising over-engineering and reducing costs.

Laboratory testing for fine-grained tolerances

Our lab testing gives a detailed picture of the site geology, providing data on the deep seated soil properties that allow us to design with greater accuracy for the soil reactivity. Our testing is highly specialised and state of the art.


We offer a range of engineering services to the construction industry.
