Building Sitting Studies

The stability and foundation issues identified during the Geotechnical Investigation may require specific design. This is likely to involve site drainage, retaining walls and specifically designed foundations. A Geotechnical Engineer would com-plete this work ensuring compliance with Council requirements. They would also give regard to the financial and architectural con-straints of the project. Inspections during the construction of the development would confirm design limits.
Development must also follow Council Building controls. A Registered Surveyor can set out the building location, and provide certif cation, to meet Building control requirements.
Sophisticated building developments and construction on difficult sites are possible given the appropriate level of participation from design professionals.
