Geotechnical Design Case Studies

Hinkley Connection Project. Geotechnical Support

Geotechnical analysis and design of eight individual gravity pad foundations for a new 132, 000 kV overhead line.

QB Project (Highlands Region)

Part of the design team tasked with foundation and civil infrastructure design for installation of prototype OHL support structures (NeSTs) in area of recent large scale slope instability.

Kinardochy Substation (Perth & Kinross)

Responsible for the design of staged ground investigation for the pre-construction stage tender design. The scope included development of an investigation strategy to allow for design of 25m deep rock slope designs in variably weathered neoproterozoic sequences, as well as a sampling and testing regime to allow for borrow material assessment for the proposed 20m high platform construction.
