At this site on The Terrace in Timaru, Davis Ogilvie has been involved in both geotechnical land testing and an environmental investigation of contaminated soil on the site.

The geotechnical testing involved shallow… DCP and hand auger tests across the site to a depth of 3.0 m enabling us to gain an understanding of the soil conditions on the site and make recommendations for foundation design of future construction.

The environmental testing was completed under the National Environmental Standard, and involved a Preliminary and Detailed Site Investigation, as well as Site Validation Reporting. This work involved surface soil sampling across the site, supervising the removal of three underground storage tanks, and further soil testing and analysis following the removal of contaminated material from the site.
