In Situ testing is a method of ground investigation where highly detailed measurements of soil characteristics are taken ‘In Situ’. This has a key benefit to the client, as theneed for expensive and disruptive boreholes or trial pits may become unnecessary. As a consequence, such testing is highly accurate given the negligible levels of grounddisturbance; it also provides an invaluable tool during the site investigation stagesof a project. Results may be used alongside more traditional techniques to givea very detailed appraisal of the soil and the ground characteristics across a site. Furthermore, in many cases, this method may negate the requirement to remove soil samples for lab testing.

In Situ carries out a wide range of geotechnical services including Cone PenetrationTesting, Seismic Marchetti Dilatometer Testing, Meanard Pressuremeter Testing and MOSTAP Soil Sampling. The company offers a comprehensive geotechnicalconsultancy service.
