Geotechnical Services

Our geotechnical services.

  • UAV Surveys

    We operate two Geo-Copter UAVs which we use to acquire photographs and videos.  We then process this imagery using a range of sophisticated, specialist software to produce orthorectified aerial photographs, 3D flyovers, ground models (DTMs), stock volumes and other outputs.  We are experts in the geotechnical applications of UAVs and regularly use our systems to compliment our other services.

  • Laser Scanning (LiDAR)

    QuarryDesign has invested in a long-range high definition laser (LiDAR) scanner from Optech and has additionally purchased bespoke point cloud discontinuity analysis software to enable these data to be safely collected and interpreted.

  • Geotechnical Assessments

    We have extensive experience of conducting geotechnical assessments and have developed considerable expertise in the collection, processing and analysis of high-quality field data and in the reporting of the geotechnical information that we obtain.  By combining conventional methods of data acquisition with our state-of-the-art remote techniques (UAV and LiDAR) we are able to provide an enhanced service to our customers.

  • Quarry Designs

    Based upon the design criteria coming out of the geotechnical assessments, a detailed quarry development plan is created using the surveying and modelling software LSS.
  • Bespoke Software Development
