In some areas it will be necessary to dispose of your stormwater on site where offsite disposal is not possible or very costly. A soil percolation (or Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity) test will determine the suitability of the on-site soils to “absorb” this water. The values determined from this test will assist the designing Engineer to adequately size the proposed system to suit the site.

Experience you build on.
A geologist will visit your site and drill a number of test bores in the places of the proposed new building foundations. A detailed report will then be made and issued to you. All site reports meet the Australian standard 2870 for footings and slabs.
