Test Pits and Holes
Test pits are a rapid and cost effective method for allowing assessment of the shallow soil profile and groundwater conditions at a site. Test pits can be excavated by machine  for the purpose of confirming shallow foundation construction of existing buildings, for locating existing utilities or for sampling the near surface soils. Machine excavated test pits can be utilised for investigation of the shallow soil profile down to depths of approximately 4.00m (with standard excavation plant)
