Site Classification Report
All new buildings and extensions to existing buildings require a site soil test and classification report conducted to Australian Standards (AS-2870). Our service provides you with a complete soil classification report ensuring all council requirements are satisfied for your project. Site soil reports are required to ensure the correct foundation design is applied for your building to prevent cracking and damage to the structure caused by changing soil conditions.
The average cost for a site soil investigation and classification is $450 +gst. Our business is focused on customer service and a timely response and turn around. Please phone 0431 314 767 to confirm a quote. In some cases variations in costs may occur based on long distances/travel time and difficult access. We offer a discount to repeat customers and developers.
Wastewater Septic Soil Test and Design
We provide soil percolation (perc) testing for wastewater design and a complete onsite AWTS design service to Australian Standards AS1547 and the Queensland Plumbing and Wastewater Code.
All councils now require new dwellings and any addition of bedrooms or granny flats to existing dwellings have a soil percolation test and wastewater design completed as part of their application for approval from council. All designs must be completed by a suitably qualified person. Cost for a site assesment, drilling, percolation test and wastewater design is $1000 +gst. Cost may vary with travel. To discuss your wastewater/septic testing and design needs, please contact us.
Landslide Reports and Slope Stability Risk Assessment
Many councils in South East Queensland require slope stability analysis and risk assessment for residential lots where landslide hazard overlays are present. This reporting forms part of a building application in areas where steep slopes and hill sides pose a potential threat to development. We can provide your landslide report and associated geotechnical slope stability with RPEQ geotechnical engineer certification to assist your development application.The cost for a slope staiblity report including drilling and modelling is $1500 +gst. Cost may vary with distance and challenging site access. Where a site classification report is also required, the cost will be $1800 +gst.
