Sometimes when we do geotechnical work, we can use smaller measurement tools to provide samples for an analysis of a site. But, when a project calls for samples of a larger nature, we bring in the big toys, and in this instance, a Drill Rig.. This machine can determine soil stability of the site and collect rock and soil samples that we can send off for analysis to see if the ground is suitable for whatever the client is proposing to do.
The photo below provides a bit of perspective as to the size of the rig in relation to our Tiaki SUV.
The Reservoir project at Joyce Road is really moving along, now and we thought that you would like to take a look at some more updated photos to see the progress.
The new reservoir that is being constructed at Joyce Road is really starting to take shape. The perfect conditions today allowed us to take some drone pictures of the site.
Pretty spectacular don't you think?
Today, Cyclone Debbie has paid Tauranga a visit after having a spell in Australia, but unfortunately she has underestimated the commitment that our Geotechnical Team, Matt and Ryan have when it comes to getting the job done.
So in the pouring rain, they are completing the necessary work required to get this project underway.
Nice one guys - that's real commitment!
