Ground Investigation

Construction work can uncover many hidden problems, like contamination, mines, and underground water. It’s essential to understand the state of the ground before you begin your building project and save yourself the headache later caused by excessive project time and money.

From a detailed desk study to a thorough excavation, a trusted ground investigation service from RGS can help you.

Insitu Testing

Ground samples can be difficult to remove and test depending on their density. Some types of soil, sand, clay and rock needs to stay in its natural habitat to obtain the best results, sampled and tested in a laboratory by experienced, knowledgeable engineers. 

RGS Insitu testing always comes to you – so you can leave your substance intact and get the measure on its merits without moving it.
