CHEMKOP-LABORGEO is committed to the performance of the geological engineering investigations through all phases of study, design, drilling, field and laboratory testing, and reporting. They are typically conducted to provide subsurface information for design and construction of civil engineering works. The exploration methodology varies from visual observation in test pits to insitu soil property testing in drilled boreholes. The field exploration data is then supplemented by laboratory testing of selected soil and water samples. The geotechnical reports include detailed soil parameters for foundation design and construction issues such as excavation and dewatering requirements. We provide special services for hydrotechnical projects including geological service for the earth works, soil and ground monitoring, and instrumentation to assess the interaction of the construction with the surrounding area.



   WORLD-KNOWN TECHNOLOGIES

   CHEMKOP-LABORGEO applies drilling technologies meeting the world standards and useful in every geological conditions:

  • DTH - Down The Hole - rotary-percussive method is applied for drilling holes through a wide range of rock formations. The broken material is picking up by compressed air driven with a capacity of 23 m3/s at a pressure of 12 bar. A drilling rate amounts to 100m/8 hours.
  • ODEX - air rotary-percussive drilling with simultaneous casing. The compressed air is driven with a capacity of 23 m3/s at a pressure of 12 bar. A drilling rate amounts to 100m/12 hours.
  • HSA- Hollow Stem Auger - screwing augers with an open centre into the ground. It allows of quick and precise installation of piezometers and monitoring well in both cohesive and loose formations.



  COOPERATION WITH COMPANIES OF WORLD RENOWN

   CSince its inception, CHEMKOP-LABORGEO has been retained by world's leading business companies namely: Motorola - USA, Tesco - UK, Tishman Speyer Properties - USA, Toyota Motor Corporation - Japan, Voest Alpine - Austria, Cocefi - Belgium, SETEC - France.
Usually geological site investigations, laboratory testing, and reporting provided for foreign company have been supervised by a consulting firm pointed by the Client. We have worked with English consulting groups: GIBB Environmental Engineering, WS Atkins, Ove Arup & Partners, Dames & Moore.

Our services are highly appraised by both our customers and supervisors. For more information see Case History and References.
