GEOTECHNICAL ASSESSMENTS AND PROGAM MANAGEMENT
Geotechnical assessments start with a geologic review of the construction site and the regional setting. Site data and information is used to assess the structural setting, rock lithologies, potential stress fields, hydrogeologic conditions, and general geotechnical constraints. Previous geologic work, mapping, existing drill holes, photogrammatic surveys, geophysical surveys and other background information are cataloged. Additional drilling programs are often required to provide detailed geotechnical characterization, depending on the type and quality of background data available.
This geologic and geotechnical information enables the project area to be mapped into geotechnical domains with specific structural parameters.
Our focus is to provide detailed geotechnical assessments and data for construction tasks at remediation projects, mines, and dam projects on previous disturbance. We also provide geotechnical project management and project oversite for construction activities, geotechnical testing, and regulatory permitting. This includes property development evaluations, geotechnical analysis and regulatory compliance.
SAGE RESOURCES has over 15 years of geotechnical design, implementation and supervisory experience.
This includes a full suite of start to finish geotechnical projects from scoping studies, through pre-feasibility and costing studies, to construction and completion projects. Our work has been used on a variety of programs, including;
Aggregate, gravel, building stone quarries and open-pits
Environmental remediation projects, including land and groundwater
Dam construction and renovation,
Structural Foundation investigations and construction.
Specific services in the design and management of geotechnical investigation programs includes;
Collection and review of geotechnical data and interpretations,
Core logging, geotechnical mapping,
Slurry wall construction,
Database compilation and management,
Rock mass classification, RMR, Q, MRMR
Structural geology evaluation and interpretations
Structural fabric analysis of rock massess
Geotechnical domain definition, mapping, and modeling.
