Speedy does it

SPOTLIGHT - Site investigation

Lankelma recently performed eight Piezocone Cone Penetration Tests in quick time on a site with very limited access using its latest mini crawler rig. Client was Thames Water Utilities Geotechnics Group.

The rig is 1m wide and weighs 1.7t with a 20t push capacity. It is completely self-contained, with the ability to install its own ground anchors and incorporating a logging system and power supply.

The contract was awarded to Lankelma on a Friday afternoon on condition the work was performed on the following Monday, with a report delivered to Thames Water's office by 11:00 on Tuesday.

Lankelma performed 11 tests to between 5m and 5.5m and received the data by email on completion of the work.

The results were processed, soil type interpreted and final results in PDF format accompanied AGS data delivered to the client.
