Geotechnical Services

Our geotechnical engineering services provide a wide range of solutions for soil analysis, foundation design, and site assessments to ensure the safety and stability of your construction projects.

A.S.James Drillers conducting geotechnical services by extracting core samples by using rig auger to drill down into the soil.

A.S.James are a Victorian-based company, capable of carrying out all types of geotechnical investigations. We are fully self-contained, incorporating engineering staff, two NATA accredited laboratories and field equipment, including drilling rigs, field density nuclear meters and similar. As such, we are fully flexible in our approach to any investigation.

A.S.James has been involved in numerous slope stability projects across Colac Otway Shire, Metropolitan Melbourne, the Dandenong Ranges, the Mornington Peninsula, and throughout regional Victoria. We have provided solutions for several prominent residential developments within Erosion Management Overlays (EMO) and various structures on at-risk slopes.

Our experienced engineers assess slope stability using advanced analytical techniques with GeoStudio-SLOPE/W software to determine the depth and location of potential failure planes and assess the likelihood of failure. We also have the capability to use finite element software (PLAXIS 2D) to evaluate how the proposed structure interacts with the soil/rock, ensuring a safe solution that meets performance requirements.

Risk assessments are conducted in accordance with local council planning schemes and Australian Geomechanics Society guidelines, ensuring thorough and compliant evaluations.
