Slope & Rock Engineering

We undertake comprehensive investigations and assessments of natural slopes and engineered cut and filled slopes. Engineered slopes are usually created in connection with urban development, transportation, dams, mining, waste disposal and other construction activities.

We are highly experienced and have an extensive library of case histories ranging from: identifying risks from slope instability to designing and supervising solutions to inherent or active cases of instability. Design solutions involve earthworks, drainage, anchorage, reinforcements, and implementing retaining structures using an optimal approach to our Clients’ needs and technical requirements to ensure adequate stability. We undertake post failure investigations and design and supervise emergency and longer term remedial solutions. We undertake long term monitoring of slope and groundwater conditions allowing long term assessment of slope issues.

Southern Testing are continuing to work through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, including carrying out site work where it is safe to do so.

The Government have given express support to the Construction sector and have issued specific guidance for working on site. The Construction Leadership Council have also issued guidance.

We have revised our travelling and working practices to ensure that our staff are protected, and to meet the particular requirements of the guidance as well as our own risk assessments. The guidance and our working practices are under constant review.

Most site investigation work can be undertaken safely under the current restrictions.

We are committed to helping all our clients, old and new, during this difficult time. Should you have any site investigation requirements, or wish to discuss a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
