Difficult Access Sites

We are often engaged to provide specialist geotechnical services on difficult to access sites using rope access techniques

  • Cliff face mapping and stability analysis
  • Inspection, monitoring and testing of ground anchors
  • Landslide and rockfall hazard risk assessment including 3-D computer simulated modelling
  • Design of slope stabilisation and mitigation measures

Benefits of using GeoSolve staff trained and experienced in rope access:

  • Enables a full understanding of geotechnical conditions leading to reduced uncertainty in ground models
  • Identifies potentially unseen hazards which may present a risk to future construction and/or development
  • Enables better understanding of the complexities of construction work in difficult access sites
  • Can be more cost effective than other investigation techniques
