CCI’s Geotechnical Engineering group provides extensive services for use in the design of pipeline projects. The gathering of subsurface information during the geotechnical investigation phase is the foundation for every good design.  

The geological model developed from the desktop study and field investigation allows the designer to have confidence in their work and can reduce a large amount of risk associated with cost and schedule. CCIs geotechnical team leverages the expertise from our designers and construction experts to plan and execute our field programs specific to the needs of the design team. The close communication between design and geotechnical teams allows us to efficiently make changes as required to effectively mitigate any gaps that may otherwise persist. 

Geotechnical investigations for trenchless design and construction are only one part of what the geotechnical team at CCI can provide. Geohazard identification and terrain mapping are also scopes of work that the CCI geotechnical team undertakes with the intention of minimizing the risks to the mainline pipeline design. These assessments are part of our process to reduce overall schedule and cost for our clients.

Guided Slip Bore: Settlement and Sinkhole Development on a 5 m High Railway Embankment

Slip bore and guided slip bore trenchless pipeline installation is preferred by Engineers. These methods of installation are less prone to creating subsurface deformations when completed in favorable geotechnical conditions. Settlement of the above-ground facility being crossed is not expected.
