Soil Testing

Agb Environmental uses highly experienced geotechnical engineers to carry out ground condition analysis, soil testing and in-depth assessment of your project. Offering a wide range of geotechnical services, including soil testing, ground investigation and foundation solutions, agb Environmental can take into consideration the entire development to avoid time delays and future expense. Implementing a thorough investigation of your ground conditions by completing soil testing that involves both insitu & exsitu methods, our soil testing involves standard penetrometer tests, dynamic probing, soakage tests to BRE 365 and cone penetrometer tests. Able to test the quality of your soil through the use of hand auger sampling, machine excavated pits, dynamic sampling and a variety of drilling methods.

Soil testing is vital to discover whether your site harbours any contaminates that you need to be aware of during the planning stages. Our experienced team have worked with architects, engineers, developers and planning consultants, as well as government departments, so that you know your soil testing is in good hands. Catering for a full range of contaminated land studies, soil testing is an important part of the process that our team can then continue on to Phase 2 Site Investigations and Remediation Strategies.
