Senior Engineering Geologist
“I appreciated how easy it was to communicate with the SGL team on a project with changing timeframes and requirements, making it much easier for me to manage remotely.”
“We have used Southern Geophysical on several occasions to do Cross Hole Sonic Logging and Low Strain Dynamic Pile Testing on piling projects across the North Island. Their team is professional, pleasant to work with, and most importantly flexible and willing to fit in with changing schedules and produce reports in a timely manner. We now use Southern Geophysical exclusively for all our pile testing projects and highly recommend them to other contractors.”
“I have worked with Mike and his team at Southern Geophysical investigating many buildings since 2017. They have provided me non-destructive test data on various types of structural building assessments and developing repair strategies. I have used Southern Geophysical help to determine if there are voids under slabs, if deep concrete piles are cracked at depth, testing of concrete panels to determine if epoxy injection has fully penetrated the crack, and determining steel reinforcing in concrete structures.”
