A general term describing any group of banks, ditches, mounds, scoops, hollows, platforms, or other structures of earth and stone.

Geotech testing in Christchurch is become somewhat the norm to obtain information on the physical properties of soil and rock around a site to design earthworks and foundations for proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions as seen in the Canterbury earthquakes.

Works we cover are:

Car Parks

A cleared area that is intended for parking vehicles, Pictured here is one of our Christchurch car parks, Kirkwood Avenue at Canterbury University.

Concrete Cutting

Concrete cutting is a process of controlled sawing, drilling and removal of concrete performed by skilled operators using special saws that use a diamond blade.

Foot Paths

Are intended for pedestrians only, so the construction is somewhat different from a car park. Pictured here is a Exposed Aggregate an Bitumen foot path combined to form a contemporary design statement.


What is kerbing you ask, it separates the road from the roadside. It provides structural support to the pavement edge and lawn edging.
