Groundwater Assessment for Basement Design
Multi-level basements constructed at a considerable depth below ground level may encounter groundwater or groundwater seepage. If not suitably managed and controlled, groundwater can cause serious problems during and after construction. One of the primary threats posed by a high water table is groundwater uplift pressure, which can damage basement floor slabs.
If required, we can plan and install monitoring well(s) and piezometers that provide critical information about pore water pressure, subsurface permeability, permanent groundwater levels and groundwater seepage inflow rates.
We give you the right information to make the right decisions
Our reports offer recommendations to hydrogeologists, architects, structural engineers and civil engineering consultants regarding groundwater control, basement serviceability and parameters for the design of tanked basements.
