Strata Geotechnics is currently working on a number of key highways projects, including:
- M27 J4 - 11 SMART Motorways - providing priority ground investigation that will uncover preliminary geotechnical information to help inform the requirements for piling and any retaining wall designs
- A428 - Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Improvements - providing preliminary investigations and surveys that will help build up a picture of the type of soils, rock types and groundwater. This will inform the design and civil engineering solutions to build the road, bridges and its junctions.
On these projects, Strata Geotechnics is deploying its VeTrak restricted access drilling machine in addition to its extensive cable percussion and rotary drilling rigs. Strata engineers will utilise an innovative cloud-based key-log book system so that real-time results can be fed back to the project management team to provide instantaneous ability to make quick and key decisions.
"We are delighted to have been awarded these prestigious contracts and proud to help enable successful project outcomes for Highways England and their supply chain. Our teams are utilising innovative ground investigation techniques to provide our clients with a better service and value for money," said Strata Geotechnics Director, Andy Johnston.
