Geotechnical Interpretive Report

A Geotechnical Interpretive Report (GIR) provides a concise overview of ground conditions within the proposed development area, offering design advice and recommendations based on factual and/or interpreted information. It serves as a foundation for the civil and structural design of the development, emphasizing any potential challenges. Addressing these concerns early in the design process or planning for mitigation during construction is a key focus.

Aligned with Eurocode 7, we cater to a spectrum of projects, from small slope stability endeavors to large-scale onshore renewable and development projects across the UK.

Dependant upon the requirements of the client and project, the Geotechnical Interpretive Report (GIR) may include:

  • Objectives and agreed scope
  • Location and description of the site and its history (Phase 1 Desk Study)
  • Investigation locations
  • Description of the site and regional geology
  • Methods and results from field work
  • Summary of laboratory testing results
  • Interpretation of the site geology and the development of the geotechnical model
  • Summary of the geotechnical properties of the ground relevant to the project
  • Interpretation of the implications of the ground conditions for the project
  • Assessment of potential risks to the project
  • Recommendations for further work where required
