Hillslope stability analysis, engineering geologic geomorphic mapping and hazard risk assessments.
Liquefaction assessment has become an important part of geotechnical engineering throughout New Zealand, and particularly within the Canterbury Region following the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence. Subsequent to the earthquakes, a certain level of assessment is required by the Council for most developments and Consenting purposes.
- Technical Category 1 (TC1): Areas where land damage via liquefaction is considered unlikely from future large earthquake events.
- Technical Category 2 (TC2): Liquefaction induced damage from future large seismic events is expected to be minor to moderate.
- Technical Category 3 (TC3): Moderate to significant liquefaction induced land damage is to be expected as a consequence of future large earthquake events.
LandTech specialise in comprehensive liquefaction assessment and analyses that incorporate the appropriate level of field testing and modelling, detailed for each project. Field data is assessed using the latest computer modelling software that is calibrated to represent the ground conditions on a site-specific basis.
Following the assessment process, which involves modelling the site data for the required design levels of seismicity (i.e. Serviceability Limit State and Ultimate Limit State design), we pride ourselves on providing cost effective and practical foundation solutions for our Clients. During this process we are more than happy to work alongside our Clients appointed Structural Engineers, Architects and/or appointed Consultants.
