How Geoscience Companies Like G3 Can Save Developments and Projects

August, 31 2019

Geoscience, or geotechnical engineering, relates to the analysis of earthworks and foundations in building projects. Geoscience consultants advise construction firms on whether the land is safe to build on.

So, how exactly can geoscience companies work to save projects from failing?

Provide deeper analysis

Geotech consultants, such as those here at G3SoilWorks, work with construction firms to provide consultancy services based around geology and physics. The underlying idea of this is to work out what’s going on underground, beneath the building and within the soil. The effects that water from rain, rivers or tides can have on the soil is analyzed, while the physical and chemical properties of the ground are also examined to give you a better idea of the suitability of the soil for building on. In areas that lie around fault lines, such as in California, geotechnical engineering firms can also assess the risk to humans that the property might pose should an earthquake occur.

Reduce the risk of collapse and injury

Companies that fail to invest in geoscience services run the risk of their buildings or projects collapsing. If you build on an area that’s close to a waterway, for example, you risk disrupting the sediment and your building could eventually sink. Without hiring geoscience companies to inform you whether the area on which you’re constructing is safe, construction is effectively guesswork. Geoscience consulting can help prevent this by informing you on whether the soil can be built on and if you may have to take measures while building to avoid anything untoward from happening.

Save you money

Just imagine the amount you’d be liable to pay if a disaster strike and one of your properties were damaged or worse if someone was injured or even killed. That’s the risk you’re taking if you build on land that hasn’t been tested by experts and could be susceptible to landslides, earthquakes or one of several other natural disasters which can often occur here in the Golden State.

The amount you’ll pay a consultant to analyze your earth materials thoroughly and to give you hard data and peace of mind will be far, far less than if you were to neglect this important service and something was to go wrong further down the line.
