As a complimentary service to its drilling capabilities Ground Check also undertakes basic geophysical testing for use in the specification of ductile iron pipeline materials, electrical cables and earthing electrodes from electricity pylons, wind turbines and sub-stations. The techniques employ an array of electrodes attached to scientific testing equipment and datalogger, which is used measure the Electrical Resistivity (conductivity) and Thermal Resistivity of soils.
To allow us to offer a complete site investigation package Ground Check also maintains a strategic alliance with a specialist geophysical surveying company, who can provide a full range of services, including:

  • Seismic Refraction/Reflection
  • Resistivity Mapping & Sounding
  • Ground Probing Radar (GPR)
  • Microgravity
  • Magnetics
  • Electromagnetic Surveys
  • Induced Polarisation
