Soil testing and site classifications
Qualified geologists in Geelong and Ballarat, servicing Victoria-wide
We conduct soil tests and provide site classification reports for construction of new homes as well as additions and renovations to existing homes.
A typical soil test or site classification is conducted by a qualified geologist who determines the local site and soil characteristics and recommends the most suitable footing for the site. All residential building sites must be classified according to the Australian Standard AS2870.1 – Residential Slabs and Footings. The resultant soil report can include recommendations for slab-on-ground, waffle pod slab, strip and stump footings.
Our qualified consultants also provide land capability assessments and BALs in the wider Geelong and Ballarat regions. With offices in Geelong, Ballarat and South Melbourne, we are well-placed to service Melton, Werribee and more across the state.
