Understanding the soils’ behaviour and the impact of groundwater tables on the design and execution of structures is essential preparatory work of any construction project.
Roy Consultants employs proven field testing techniques and advanced laboratory technologies to collect soil, aggregate and groundwater samples and data, and determine site conditions. Our geotechnical specialists therefore work with project planners as well as civil and structural designers to ensure adequate risk management, depending on the particularities of the terrain, in establishing construction methods. They normally remain engaged in the construction phase of projects, particularly during the completion of excavation and backfill work. This approach ensures better monitoring of projects and promotes an interdisciplinary approach necessary to their successful completion.
Among the specialized services offered in the field of soil mechanics are surveys by drilling, tests on soils, aggregates and rock, evaluations and recommendations of foundations (deep and shallow), slope stability analysis and soil frost behaviour analysis.
