Soil Investigation Eastern Ltd specialises in borehole drilling services, particularly for new build and extension work. We use 100mm mechanical Continuous Flight Auger rigs where the depths achieved are up to 12 metres. Hand augured boreholes achieve depths of up to 5 metres to provide you with soil reports and ground testing services. The drilling team are highly trained in the use of our drilling equipment, we will run a number of checks on the site prior to drilling. We drill the boreholes at 1 metre intervals, taking disturbed soil samples and providing in-situ Shear Vane and stroke or Mackintosh Probe Penetration testing. We provide a factual report with site plan and borehole logs.
We specialise in restricted access on site, our rig will fit through most sized gates, through houses and into basements (subject to a minimum width), please contact us for more information.
Our team will take the greatest of care whilst working on your site, leaving the area worked in clean and tidy, and reinstating any hard surfaced areas.
We serve Essex, London, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and the whole of the UK.
