Inspection Drilling

With our four meter vehicle mounted drilling mast we have the ability to auger drill using either a 65mm or 100mm Continuous Flighted Auger and withdraw at any depth to visually inspect for soil and ground water conditions. This offers a fast visual inspection to enable better understanding of any variations in resistance found by the CPT. While this method does not provide an completely undisturbed sample, it is the next best thing and is the fastest, most economical way to achieve a good understanding of subsoil conditions.
