Fondasol UK

Site investigation contractor Fondasol UK recently completed its fifth ground investigation at the Canary Wharf development in London Docklands.

Since its first Menard pressuremeter borehole at Heron Quays in June last year, the firm has seen a growing interest for the insitu test in Thanet Sand (GE March).

Twenty boreholes and more than 300 tests have been carried out in the lower Lambeth Group, the Thanet Sand and down to the Upper Chalk.

Fondasol UK branch manager Arnaud Finiasz said: 'Having proved efficient in measuring the limit pressure and deformation modulus in the Thanet Sand, the Menard pressuremeter will undoubtedly play an increasing role in ground investigations where a greater degree of precision is required. '
