If you are looking to obtain information on the physical properties of soil or ground around a site to design earthworks and foundations for proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions, you will need to do some soil investigation / site investigation / ground investigation. Our range of equipment enables you to check the soil conditions, get immediate results and take samples.

Site characterisation is unarguably the most important, but also most “difficult”, component of geo-engineering. Our equipment is designed to improve the quality of site characterisation and reduce the difficulties involved.


PANDA® Instrumented Variable Energy Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP)

The PANDA® is used for ground investigation and compaction control and is a portable method for evaluating soil strength. The PANDA® is particularly good for testing in challenging conditions (remote, soft, marshy, over-water and hazardous locations or confined spaces).

GRIZZLY® Dynamic Probing Super Heavy (DPSH)

The GRIZZLY® is a self propelled rig used for ground investigation and compaction control with geotechnical drilling, window sampling, windowless sampling and Standard Penetration Test (SPT) sampling attachments, according to EN ISO 22476-2. Being light and compact, the GRIZZLY® is particularly good for testing in challenging conditions (difficult to access locations or confined spaces).
