We support you in every phase of project development

The starting point of our consulting for all geotechnical aspects of a project is the determination of fundamentals by carrying out a site survey. Our experts initially focus on the quality and efficiency of your construction project, assessing your building site with regard to its design. They carry out analyses of technological and process feasibility, identify and evaluate risks and optimise the interfaces between all the tasks involved. In doing so, they pay close attention to your schedule and keep an eye on your project as a whole: In addition to project management, they support you in the preparation of qualified tender documents and advise you on offers and contracts.

Proof of damage during construction according to DIN 4123 and expert witness reports

Our renowned test centres also issue expert witness reports that comprehensively describe project-specific findings or assess them in accordance with the respective construction task, for example to assess damage. Your advantage: by inspecting objects before work commences and after completion of the construction project, or in the event of apparent damage, we are able to distinguish damage incurred in the course of a construction project from existing damage.

In this procedure we gather as much information as we can regarding the condition of buildings within the sphere of influence of the construction project. Our experts record and document their findings and the evidence in a report. This applies to industrial and residential buildings, other engineering structures and traffic routes. This gathering and documentation of evidence during construction serves to protect affected parties as well as the building company.

Our special field: Mining construction projects

Our company tradition lies in the field of mining. As an advisory and appraising authority, we have been accompanying construction projects carried out within the framework of abandoned mining and post mining for several decades – for both real estate construction and infrastructure projects.

Our specialists make well-founded assessments taking into account all geotechnical and mining aspects as well as the planned subsequent use. We will be happy to advise you in the following areas:

  • Investigation and evaluation of building sites
  • Stability assessments and expert reports
  • Dismantling of plants and facilities
  • Remediation of contaminated sites
  • Land recycling
  • Shaft stabilisation and  protection
  • Withdrawal and closure concepts
  • Backfilling of underground cavities
  • Foundation engineering
