Geotechnics

Bridges, quay walls, dikes, tunnels, they must be sustainable, economical and safe. This requires an appropriate investigation of the subsoil. The Geotechnics Division (GEO) has the task of investigating the nature and characteristics of the soil and to predict its behaviour. Geotechnical tests and measurements are carried out in the field and in the laboratory to investigate nature, stratification and characteristics of the soil. Our division invests in innovative technologies such as advanced testing and online monitoring.
