Mukona successfully completed phase 1 & 2 Geotechnical Investigations within a number of Local Municipalities in South Africa.

Client: NHBRC

Key Collaborations: LYMA Consulting Engineers, Road lab and Geopractica Laboratories

Mukona carried out geotechnical investigations, which entails the excavation of trial pits using a TLB to a maximum depth of 3m or refusal of the machine.


Key Facts: Geotechnical Investigation, in-situ testing and Laboratory testing

Each test pit deemed safe to enter was internally profiled according to the method proposed by Jennings, Brink and Williams, sampled as necessary and then loosely backfilled.


Key Services Provided: Geotechnical Engineering

In addition to the test pits excavated, DPL tests were carried out adjacent to the excavation test pits to a maximum depth of 3.0m metres unless practical refusal is encountered at a shallow depth in order to ascertain consistency and strength of the sub soils underlying the site.
