Construction Drilling Applications

Construction drilling applications include continually sampling and monitoring subsurface conditions during active construction projects, including supporting installation of ground movement sensors, vibrating wire piezometers (VWP's), and specialized dewatering applications.


We regularly install slope inclinometers, extensometers, and vibrating wire piezometers (VWP's) used during active construction so contractors can monitor the progress of construction. We also help builders obtain subsurface quality control samples of construction materials used in the construction process.


Many Contractors require our services to properly decommission and abandon monitoring wells as construction proceeds.
