Put your construction project on a viable footing

During a construction project, the building site is the key to all geotechnical issues – yet, in many cases, it is also the biggest unknown factor.

Our geotechnical analyses and specialist technical advice will help you avoid costly construction processes, building delays and even structural damage.

We produce expert reports for professionally executed, safe foundation works, providing information about:

  • The structure of the ground and its suitability for building
  • Ground settlement behaviour and load-bearing capacity
  • Earthquake risk
  • A site model and an illustration of the foundation options
  • The suitability of geothermal probes
  • Excavation support and load-bearing capacity
  • Drainage for meteoric water

Case studies

Soil Investigation and Clarifications of Groundwater Conditions, Stierli Site, Zürich-Seebach

A new construction is to be developed on this industrial site. To this end, Ecosens AG explored the geological and hydrogeological conditions in detail by means of core drilling, dynamic probing and pumping tests. A soil model was produced with a detailed description of the geological layers.

Soil Investigation for a New Construction of a Residential/Commercial Building

For the planned new construction, an assessment of the geological and hydrogeological conditions was performed. Core drilling and percussion drilling were evaluated, as well as a pumping test.

Soil Investigation and Clarifications of Groundwater Conditions, Recycling Plant New Construction, Hinwil

The new construction of a recycling plant is planned on the site. Ecosens AG has explored the geological and hydrogeological conditions by means of core drilling, standard penetration tests (SPT) and pumping tests. A soil model was produced with a detailed description of the geological layers.
