Excavation Stability Inspections

Our experienced engineers are ready to help reduce delay times and keep your project moving forward. Inspections are conducted on site to identify any potential stability hazards and to determine if benching, battering or support systems are required. We can advise on potential impacts to adjacent structures, impact minimisation strategies and appropriate excavation methods. We take into account and advise on the many factors that may contribute to an unstable excavation.

These factors may include;
• The depth of the excavation
• The nature and condition of the ground
• The zone of influence for traffic & plant operating near the excavation
• Slip planes in the soil and fractures/faults in rocks
• Moisture content, water seepage and potential flood risk
• Nearby in-ground services & proximity of buildings and other structures
• If the ground is level or sloping
This assessment maybe be used as part of a risk management process in accordance with NSW WorkCover Excavation Work Code of Practice 2015.
