Soil Test

Soil tests are required to assess the subsurface conditions (expected movement of the foundation soils) and therefore enable design of appropriate foundations.

Typical classification may include:

  • CLASS ‘A’ – Little or no ground movement
  • CLASS ‘S’ – Slightly reactive sites
  • CLASS ‘M’ – Moderately reactive sites
  • CLASS ‘H’ – Highly reactive sites
  • CLASS ‘E’ – Extremely reactive sites
  • CLASS ‘P’ – Problem site

Engineers Design

A design specific to your soil classification is required so that you have many years of trouble free use of your installation.
