Settlement analysis

Settlement analysis

Soils consolidate under the application of loads from buildings. All foundations settle as the soil around and beneath the foundation adjust to the loading. Buildings with light loads or built on rock may experience negligible settlement. Foundations for heavier structures or in clay soils may settle much more.Where foundation settlement occurs at...

Slope stability analysis

Slope stability analysis

Slope stability is the potential of a naturally occurring or engineered soil slope (e.g. embankments, cuttings,open-pit mining, excavations, landfills etc.) to withstand ground movement. A previously stable slope may become unstable, leading to mass movement. Mass movements can be caused by an increase in shear stress, such as increased loading or...

Offshore Geotechnical Works

Offshore Geotechnical Works

It is a sub-field of geotechnical engineering concerned with foundation design. construction, maintenance and decommissioning for human-made structures in the see. Oil  platforms, piers, artificial islands and submarine  pipelines are examples of such structures. The seabed has to be able to withstand the weight of these structures and the applied...

Topographic Surveying

Topographic Surveying

Our four teams of highly experienced surveyors and up-to-date instrumentations can undergo topographical surveying projects (of all sizes) and prepare the required maps that show all the physical features of a tract of land (including contouring lines). These surveys are presently given to Engineers, Architects and Managers to plan for areas of fut...

Structural Analysis

Structural Analysis

Safco provides a wide range of techniques to assess the condition of concrete in all types of structures.Concrete is not the all-enduring material it is often thought to be and many poorly designed or constructed structures require considerable maintenance to prolong service life. Structural evaluations are done by our teams to offer valuable infor...

Geophysical Surveys

Geophysical Surveys

Geophysical Survey investigations can often reduce remediation costs by avoiding unnecessary intrusive activity. SAFCO has an extensive experience in conducting electrical resistivity, seismic refracting and thermal resistivity investigations. These investigations allow a rapid coverage of large areas to detect depth of the water table,bedrock leve...

Piling & Micro piling

Piling & Micro piling

With five piling rigs equipped with the most advanced and digitalized equipment and complimentary accessories, we have the capability to produce all types (regular, tangent and secant) of cast-in-situ piles having diameters ranging from 600 to 1500mm and down to a depth of 50m in all types of soils, SAFCO has also a large fleet of eight micro piles...

Static Pile Test

Static Pile Test

With the capacity of loading up to 2600 tons at once, static load tests on piles are the present state-of-the-art method of determining the performance of a pile when subjected to a given load. The test can be used to determine the settlement that can occur at working loads (150% of actual pile carrying load), or a multiple of it, and can also be u...
