Geotechnical Engineering

Factual & Interpretive Reporting

There are many situations that necessitate a geotechnical report, e.g., as a part of a Building or Resource Consent application, or to inform structural design or land development design.

Ground Truths

Professional Geotechnical Reporting

Tiaki Engineering Consultants provide geotechnical reports to meet Resource Consent, Building Consent or engineering design requirements.

The overarching projects that require a Geotech report are often centered on structures such as farm sheds, houses, major buildings, bridges, or industrial plants. Less frequently we furnish reports in support of earthworks, infrastructure, or land development projects.

The team at TECL has decades of experience in the Bay of Plenty and further afield on projects of all sizes across the spectrum of site geologies.

Our Clients benefit greatly from our user-friendly size and cooperative structural, civil, and geotechnical departments. Multi-disciplinary collaborations are second nature to Tiaki Engineering Consultants.

On major projects where Client and Contractor roles have overlaps and shortfalls, Tiaki can act as a third-party Engineer to the Contract under NZS3910:2013, including where we have had limited or no prior design involvement.

TECL maintains professional relationships with external engineering firms who have Tauranga City Council Category 1 and 2 geo-professional accreditation, whom we engage for peer review on a project-by-project basis as required.
