Geotechnical drilling is a process of making cylindrical holes in the ground conducted prior to the construction of buildings and others massive structures. The main purpose of geotechnical drilling is to determine applicability of construction through the analysis of subsurface conditions and soil and rocks characteristics. Geotechnical drilling is carried out under the supervision of geotechnical engineer who monitors and correct the process when needed as per the designed drilling criteria of the project.
Geotechnical Worldwide Experience
Located in Pueblo, Colorado, Jesik Consulting is currently serving the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and has the international activities in Mexico, Europe, Russia, South America and Africa. The Team of licensed multi-disciplined professional engineers has combined experience of 61 years.
Geotechnical Drilling Projects
Jesik Consulting’s specialists have extensive experience in geotechnical drilling including developing, managing, planning, performing the drilling and collecting the data on different projects around the world. These projects include but not limited to a single-family home, a tailings dam, a pipeline area and a port facility.
Geotechnical Working Environment
Throughout the years, Jesik Consulting engineers have been working and gaining the experience in different regions and areas including high alpine environment, sides of volcanos, jungles, sand dunes, arid and semi-arid lands. Limited access area projects such as drilling inside the buildings allowed to gain the experience in operating low profile rigs. Our stuff knows how to adopt to any working environment and adjust to the specifics of your project.
Geotechnical Drilling Environment
The portfolio of Jesik Consulting includes the drilling in bogs and marsh areas, on the sides of volcanos through intrusive rocks, in limestone and karst regions, through sands, jungle soils and extrusive rocks. Our engineers have vast experience to perform your project professionally with no delays and non-productive time.
Geotechnical Drilling Methods
The methods of Jesik Consulting geotechnical drilling include solid and hollow stem auger drilling, direct push drilling, mud and air rotary drilling, rock core drilling, oriented core drilling, cone penetration testing drilling and overburden drilling excentric (ODEX). This allows selecting and using the optimum drilling method taking into the account the specifics of your project.
Geotechnical Monitoring Equipment
Some geotechnical drilling projects require long term subsurface monitoring for the purposes of investigation how subsurface conditions change with time. The stuff of Jesik Consulting has the know-how to get your monitoring equipment installation done professionally and correctly the first time. This includes the installation of standpipe piezometers, vibrating wire piezometers, inclinometers, settlement sensors, displacement meters, pressure and load cells, data loggers and their software.
