We provide landslip risk investigation and advice for properties and infrastructure asset owners where risk to landslip is a concern or are subject to an Erosion Management Overlay. A landslip risk assessment may involve surveying of the slope, engineering geological survey, site surveillance, drilling and soil or rock testing programs to assess the ground conditions.
We can provide you with the following services, tailored to your site to minimise costs:
- Expert advice for property landslip risk
- Experienced and trained staff for infrastructure risk assessments
- Landslip investigation
- Back analysis & forensic investigation
- Stability monitoring
- Land instability management and monitoring advice
- Mitigation works design advice
As well as holding geotechnical engineering Masters or PhD degrees, our engineers have undergone training for the internationally respected NSW RMS slope risk assessment scheme and are also very familiar with VicRoads, QLD TMR and NSW (Sydney Trains) slope assessment methodologies.
We have significant experience in advising on and monitoring landslip risk and slope stability in Victoria, Queensland, and New South Wales.
In Victoria work has been conducted in the Mornington Peninsula, South Gippsland, Bellarine Peninsula, Yarra Ranges and Colac Otway Shires. While in Queensland, we have been working on slope risk assessment projects in Toowoomba Range and on roadside slopes under TMR authority. In Sydney region, we have been working on properties located within The Hills Shire and Penrith Council.
Our risk advice services follow the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) 2007 guidelines. Our specialist services include:
- Field testing including geotechnical drilling and dynamic cone penetrometer testing
- Geomorphology and geological assessment of the sloping sites
- Landslip Risk assessments
- Slope stability analysis using modern software, both analytical and numerical modelling
- Drone used to assess difficult to access slopes
- Slope stabilisation design to improve slope safety
- Certified Geotechnical Declaration Form prepared by Chartered Professional Engineer with experience in landslip risk assessment
- Monitoring of slope stability by means of installation and use of advanced geotechnical instrumentation systems
