Geotechnical Desk Study

blstPlanning of ground investigations can be much more effective when existing data and literature related to the project are available. A desk study compiling all available data is a valuable source of information as it allows a better understanding of the nature of grounds and type of challenges that will likely be encountered for specific projects. DST’s comprehensive in-house databases as well as our access to national and international libraries allow us to obtain relevant and current data and information.

DST has the capability of carrying out the following types of desk studies for any type of geotechnical project:

  • Regional geology and Engineering geology Studies
  • Aerial Photography
  • Terrain analysis using 3-D images
  • Literature survey
