GEOSS provides Geotechnical studies to a number of sectors including agriculture and construction.
This involves characterising subsurface soil conditions to define the engineering properties for development and construction. In doing so, proper and appropriate field and laboratory analysis are executed (to relevant standards) to model foundations conditions under load. Keeping in mind that seasonal changes in groundwater and soil conditions may affect these properties.
One such project was completed in Lesotho during which GEOSS was able to complete these analyses successfully and recommended guidelines for the appropriate foundations of agricultural construction, including buildings and greenhouse tunnels. This project has been well received and we are very happy with the results.
