Building a new residence, extending your existing dwelling or planning any type of development on sloping ground? Slope stability assessments measure how stable your site is, find potential landslip areas, and recommend ways to keep your site stable such as retaining walls and drainage. A typical Slope Stability Assessment by Tectonic includes:
- Desk study of existing maps, aerial photos, and the soil test report.
- Site walk-over mapping by an experienced geotechnical professional.
- Preparation of a letter report with the slope stability risk assessment and advice regarding design of footings, earthworks, retaining structures and drainage (as relevant).
- For more complex sites, subsurface investigation, often by test pitting and drilling boreholes, is carried out, followed by targeted laboratory testing.
- Where necessary, we also conduct numerical modelling using computer software to provide quantitative assessment of slope stability.
