Central Victorian Soil Testing undertakes contract drilling services for consultants and engineers who require soil information at a particular site without any formal recommendations. The soil information can be logged by a geotechnical engineer and significant features noted. This information is compiled on the field sheets and forwarded on to the consultant or engineer.
Alternately, the drilling can be supervised by a representative who has commissioned the job.
CVST has a trailer mounted hydraulic drilling rig which uses 100mm diameter solid continuous flight augers. The drilling rig has a maximum depth of 8 metres depending on the type of soil encountered. Samples can be obtained at various depths directly from the auger.
