Why Is Soil Testing Required

Site Classifications and soil testing are usually required by your building consultant or structural engineer to enable the design of site-specific foundations for your proposed development. An accurate site classification can in many instances result in an efficient foundation design, which can lead to construction savings over standard generic designs, which may not be specific to your site or needs. An accurate site investigation can also identify any problems which will need to be addressed and planned into your foundation design and building planning. Accurate identification of problems before construction commences can minimise any construction hold ups and surprise cost blowouts leading to a more efficient planning and construction of your project.

Site Classifications particularly over the past 20 years have become a standard engineering service accompanying any permit application for many reasons. The main reasons for this is

1) That with the advent of residential housing insurance which is required to be provided by builders for all new residential developments a specific foundation design is required for each specific site for this insurance to be valid. The building consultant and structural engineers who will undertake the design also need an accurate knowledge of the soil type on the property which will allow them to design a foundation solution which will provide effective long term serviceability for your development.

2) In recent times as residential development has been sprawling to the outer limits of Melbourne more unknown land is being developed which professionals no longer have local knowledge over the soils and will require a site classification to design a serviceable foundation. More and more land is being subdivided on poor ground conditions which would not have been even attempted 30 years ago to fulfill the needs of the growing population. These poor ground conditions are usually associated with low lying land or wet areas which become filled to raise the surface level away from the poor ground conditions and above flood levels. These filled areas need to be investigated to determine the quality of the fill and the most efficient foundation design.
