Washington Valley

Davis Ogilvie were engaged as a multi-disciplinary consultancy to provide both geotechnical and structural engineering services to aid the design of a proposed residential dwelling on sloping ground in Nelson. The geotechnical investigation was designed to acquire sufficient data to undertake a slope stability assessment and provide geotechnical recommendations to aid structural design. On completion of the geotechnical assessment Davis Ogilvie provided structural engineering services to design the retaining walls and foundations required to facilitate the architectural design. A structural design package was issued to Nelson City Council to meet both resource and building consent requirements.
