Maltech is currently carrying out phased consulting engineering services of a rather geographically challenging site on the North Yorkshire coast. A topographical survey of the site has been produced, deep boreholes excavated to assess ground conditions and the results analysed. The topographical survey has provided us with a detailed ground profile of the sloping site and also identified the extremely steep slope at the east end of the site where the ground falls by some 10 m to another residence. The specified boreholes were dug using a robust, rotary rig for which we had to construct a scaffolding ramp for access and a drilling platform to drill over the steep slope.
We hope to add further photographs to the gallery as work progresses.
