From site investigation to geotechnical design and quality control, GeoTerra provides a variety of services for the Construction Industry.


Identification – Managing of geohazards


This is generally a multi-step procedure, that usually starts from identification of geo-hazards and potential risks using all relevant investigation tools and techniques in order to create a solid geological model for the area and set the proper geotechnical design criteria.
Identification of geohazards early in the project is important because:

  •  Actions required can be applied soon enough.
  • Mitigation measures can be incorporated in the construction sequence.
  • Less unexpected issues will be faced during construction.

Instrumentation and Monitoring Plan and Setting of Trigger Levels & Action Plans are essential to gather specific data related to sensitive geotechnical parameters, so to continue with the data interpretation and predicting the soil-structure interaction behavior.
By this way, it’s ensured that all geological risks are minimized and all necessary mitigation measures have been pro-actively designed.
