Why use geophysics?

Geophysical testing produces data that is repeatable, reliable, digital, and quality assured.

Geotechnical information from drilling is gathered by taking a direct sample. Geophysics extends drilling data, and provides a more complete picture of what's underground by 'filling in the gaps' in the ground model.

Geophysics benefits and products include:

  • Fast, non-intrusive ground testing
  • Site specific seismic assessments
  • Ground analysis for existing structures and assets
  • Identifying potential and actual risks
  • Site specific response spectra, and
  • Site soil classification, NZS1170
