Geophysical surveys are non-destructive
Geophysical surveys enhance our subsurface explorations, by determining soil and rock properties, with minimal destructive testing or invasive exploration. They can reduce the risk of surprises during construction and can also supplement or even accelerate data acquisition of a conventional subsurface exploration program consisting of soil borings and test pits.
The additional information obtained using geophysical methods at your site can serve to reduce the potential for unknown or changed subsurface conditions, which can lead to costly construction overruns and project delays. ECS’ investment in technology, equipment and training, is meant to make your projects more cost efficient, with fewer surprises.
Geophysical surveys are non-destructive, non-intrusive technologies applicable in most geologies that expand our subsurface exploration methods and analytical tools. We utilize different technologies to explore known or suspected subsurface anomalies, gauge depth to rock and to determine the soil shear wave velocity parameters, site seismic classification and more.
