Often conducted in steep or landslip prone areas, where gradients are greater than 18°, slope stability assessments are often a requirement of a development approval (DA) with Council.
Slope stability and risk assessments require a preliminary desktop investigation of historical data to be carried out before our site visit. Once on site, visual assessment and ground testing including bore holes, and/or dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) testing will be undertaken by one of our experienced geotechnical engineers. The factual site data is then used to create an inferred model of the subsurface profile. This model can then be used to carry out a risk assessment in accordance with the Australian Geomechanics Societies (AGS) guidelines.
