The Geotechnical Survey Department of OSNOVA Group performs works using modern drilling machinery and tools for field and laboratory studies.

Geotechnical survey department

Basic information

Our department functions are determined by target specifications issued by our own design center and outsource designers.

The top-ranked specialists prepare a production program for survey works and keep control over their performance in the field. Experienced operators perform a set of survey works using both conventional and the new equipment manufactured in Europe, which allows completing the set tasks in a shortest time possible on a quality level that meets national and European standards.

The Department provides a full range of services on engineering survey

  • Geology
  • Geodesy
  • Hydrogeology
  • Topography and field survey in the following scales: 1:2000, 1:500, 1:200, and 1:100
  • Stationing planning and construction designs on site
  • Geodetic control as part of engineering supervision
  • Deformation monitoring
  • Facade mapping
  • Measuring works
  • Defining and control of scope of earthworks and bulk materials
  • Ecology
  • Construction dewatering
  • Designing bored wells

Geotechnical surveys are carried out for the I-III class buildings and structures in areas with existing dangerous geological processes and specific soils.

We provide

  • Field works — drilling exploratory wells up to 100 m deep including soil sampling
  • Cone penetration testing of up to 50 m deep
  • Dynamic testing of soil to a depth of up to 30 m
  • Dynamic testing of soil by SPT method to a depth of up to 50 m
  • Plate load tests of I, III, IV types
  • Soil shearing test
  • Water wells drilling and arrangement
  • Pumping and filling tests
  • Slope stability calculations
  • Hydrogeological surveys and testing for underground waters inflow
  • Stationary surveillance over groundwater conditions
  • Survey of borrow pits for local building material
  • Office working is the analysis of field and laboratory results, preparation and issue of geotechnical survey report

The set of laboratory tests of soils and ground water is performed in our own certified geotechnical laboratory accredited with "Ukrmetrteststandart" Center of Standardization, Metrology, Certification and Consumer protection
