Providing cost effective site investigation.
Solmek is an independent site investigation company which has been operating since 2002. Our team includes qualified engineers, geologists and technicians who specialise in geotechnical and geo-environmental investigations. In recent years, we have expanded our work portfolio while gaining nationally recognised certifications (ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001) enabling us to provide clients the best quality service from initial Phase 1 Desk Studies through to detailed Phase 2 Site Investigations and beyond. Onsite services are supported by our in-house UKAS accredited geotechnical testing laboratory.
Over the years the company has earned an enviable reputation for its approach to environmental and geotechnical design and construction management which offers an appreciation of the commercial pressures which confront clients in all business sectors. This can be demonstrated by a track record of producing considered and well engineered solutions on time and to budget, whilst meeting consistently high standards of quality.
We take on all types of jobs from small domestic work to larger projects all carried out to the highest standards. Our project portfolio includes many interesting and complex projects in a range of different sectors including industrial, commercial, housing and leisure.
A Phase 1 Desk Study, or Preliminary Risk Assessment, should form the first phase of any good site investigation. The purpose of a Desk Study is to evaluate the ground conditions of a site based on existing information and to plan the scope of the subsequent Phase 2 Site Investigation.
Understanding the behaviour of the underlying ground is an integral part of any site investigation. It is important that the right combination of drilling, insitu testing, sampling, logging, laboratory testing and analysis are applied within the Phase 2 Intrusive Site Investigation.
Solmek provide an extensive range of solutions to geotechnical problems.
