Borehole Drilling: The Benefits of Multiple Bores

Borehole drilling is a critical factor in geotechnical engineering, which is why we sat down with one of our engineers, Geoff Webster, to learn more about this process and the benefits of multiple bores. What are boreholes and why is borehole drilling important for geotechnical engineering? To properly characterize a building site and to design […]

3 Drilling Methods To Consider For Soil And Rock Testing

In geotechnical engineering, different drilling methods are used to better understand the soil beneath the surface. There are three common methods to consider: solid stem auger, hollow stem auger and mud rotary. Here is what you should know about each method. Drilling Methods 1 – Solid Stem Auger Solid stem augers (SSA) use continuous flight augers […]
