What is Soil Boring Testing?
Soil boring tests are a crucial first step to any structural design. It is a subsurface investigation of the soil to determine the soil properties and soil strength
Borings are drilled to specific depths that has been determined by structural engineer depend on the size of the project, and special sampling tools are used to collect soil samples.
The standard penetration test (SPT) is an in-situ soil penetration test designed to provide information on the soil properties. At Calc Engineering we have the soil boring test truck that provides soil boring N-values up to 45 feet.
Why Bore Soil Testing
Calc Engineering conducts soil testing to ensure construction projects stand on a solid foundation. We assess the soil's composition and strength, allowing us to design secure foundations, optimize construction plans, and ensure compliance with safety standards, all while prioritizing the safety and longevity of your project.
Bore soil testing is crucial for determining the load-bearing capacity of the soil. This knowledge ensures that your construction project has a solid foundation.
Bore soil testing helps identify and mitigate potential risks associated with soil settlement, shifting, or erosion, reducing the likelihood of future problems.
By accurately understanding the soil conditions, you can optimize foundation design and construction methods, potentially saving costs in the long run.
It helps assess the suitability of the site for your project, identifying any potential soil-related challenges that need to be addressed.
Many building codes and regulations require soil testing to ensure safety and compliance with local standards.
