One of CMW's specialist services is providing geotechnical site investigations specifically tailored to meet our clients' project needs.
We help our clients manage risk and solve ground related challenges by developing robust models that reflect the anticipated ground conditions and describe the likely performance of the strata that influences the works.
We provide our clients with support in relation to the identification, selection and design of appropriate ground retention solutions. These solutions often include the following techniques which can be temporary or permanent.
Collectively, we have been responsible for the design, management and certification of millions of cubic metres of the compacted earthfill associated with the large land and civil infrastructure development projects.
We have extensive experience in designing or providing recommended geotechnical design parameters for a range of shallow and deep foundations. Our understanding of soil-structure interactions for a range of applications from bridges and jetties to high rise buildings and major infrastructure assets is a key attribute.
The geological environments in which each of the Directors have worked demand the application of various ground improvement techniques to stabilise, strengthen or stiffen the landform to facilitate earthworks programs, building or infrastructure developments.
We are equipped to undertake a wide range of geotechnical analyses associated with various soil or rock slope failure mechanisms. Much of this work is based on studies completed in the dynamic and complex geological environment of New Zealand incorporating steep slopes and / or weak and difficult ground conditions.
The development of a low-lying or coastal margins of any landmass will typically require the engineering of recent fine grained and normally consolidated deposits.
CMW provides geotechnical forensic engineering and expert witness consultancy services to contractors, engineers and lawyers.
One of CMW’s specialist geotechnical services is providing dynamic pile testing services tailored to meet our Clients’ project needs.
CMW Geosciences are specialists in the management of geotechnical data. The efficient management of geotechnical data is crucial for large civil engineering and building schemes, particularly in areas with complex and/or locally varying geology.
