Effective site investigation.
Effective Site Investigation is the guide to accepted best practice for designing and executing good-quality site investigation, without which unexpected ground conditions during construction can result in escalating costs and late completions for construction professionals and their clients.

This guide explains the benefits of a thorough site investigation for all proposed developments, planned and carried out in line with relevant standards by a multi-disciplinary team of ground engineering professionals experienced in the required fields. Failure to carry out a good site investigation can put project viability at risk, affecting construction cost, time to completion, durability and whole-life cost, health and safety of workers and the public, and the environment.

It is essential that consideration is given to the suitability of investigative processes employed to ensure that the most appropriate methods are used to obtain cost-effective site investigation data and value for money for the client.

Effective Site Investigation provides guidance for all ground practitioners involved in site investigation, including geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, geoenvironmental engineers and scientists, archaeologists, as well as specialists in other disciplines involved in specific investigations, and their clients

Abstract

Effective Site Investigation is the guide to accepted best practice for designing and executing good-quality site investigation, without which unexpected ground conditions during construction can result in escalating costs and late completions for construction professionals and their clients.

This guide explains the benefits of a thorough site investigation for all proposed developments, planned and carried out in line with relevant standards by a multi-disciplinary team of ground engineering professionals experienced in the required fields. Failure to carry out a good site investigation can put project viability at risk, affecting construction cost, time to completion, durability and whole-life cost, health and safety of workers and the public, and the environment.

It is essential that consideration is given to the suitability of investigative processes employed to ensure that the most appropriate methods are used to obtain cost-effective site investigation data and value for money for the client.

Effective Site Investigation provides guidance for all ground practitioners involved in site investigation, including geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, geoenvironmental engineers and scientists, archaeologists, as well as specialists in other disciplines involved in specific investigations, and their clients
