Our areas of expertise
The investigations phase provides the basic input data for every construction project and enables the engineers to define practical, optimised technical solutions based on the needs of the project and the hazards identified on the site.
Investigations are essential to render the invisible visible, particularly the soil and its characteristics.
Thanks to our broad range of services, we can carry out campaigns of simple or complex investigations drawing on one or multiple areas of expertise, to provide you with information on the soil across a wide range of criteria: geological, geomechanical, hydrogeological, presence of pollution or not, etc.
Finally, thanks to our decision aid tool Solscore and our CLEA drilling project, we are innovating in the exploitation of the data collected, to optimise the use of our investigation campaigns in your ground surveys.
As the raw material indispensable to any process of modelling the environment of a construction project, a good knowledge of the soil-related constraints and hazards is a vector for optimisation and a decision aid tool for any technical survey.
Every day, in France and abroad, we have technicians and drilling teams carry out simple or complex investigations, drawing on one or multiple areas of expertise, under either private local contracts or national call-order contracts, to identify the constraints relating to the subsurface conditions based on search criteria in line with the needs of the project and the site.
Organisation and control of planning, constant training of our staff and provision of high-performance equipment: this trio of factors is what allows us to orchestrate, on the ground, the efficient and safe performance of our interventions.
The samples collected then enter the geotechnical (or, where applicable, multi-expertise) value chain, undergoing analyses and tests in our laboratories, if necessary, to allow the design phase and the dimensioning of the geotechnical structures to get underway.
Our field data feed into our digital transformation programme, which uses them to optimise the customer experience and our practice.
To create a connected, lightweight, ergonomic and autonomous machine: that is the challenge we have set ourselves with CLEA. As well as running on batteries, CLEA will adapt in real time to the characteristics of the soils encountered by analysing the drilling parameters.
