Our fleet of drill rigs can perform a wide variety of geotechnical and environmental drilling services.
We utilize the latest technologies combined with an experienced staff to provide excellent, clean service. Our drilling services include:
- DIRECT PUSH SOIL BORINGS AND SAMPLING
Commonly referred to as DPT, a sleeve lined sampler is hydraulically advanced to obtain continuous soil samples is involved which keeps the samples uncontaminated. Direct Push is used for grab soil and water sampling as well as setting small diameter monitoring wells and piezometers.
- STANDARD PENETRATION TEST (SPT)
FGE performs SPTs in accordance with ASTM D1586-11. This method is used to collect soil samples for classification purposes while recording the relative densities or consistencies of the soils. The data collected during SPT borings is essential to major engineering decisions and applications.
- SHELBY TUBE SAMPLING
FGE performs Shelby Tube sampling in general accordance with ASTM D-1587. A Shelby Tube collects an undisturbed soil sample for later analysis. The purpose of this process is to preserve the delicate soil layers and any other defining characteristic of the in question strata.
- CONE PENETRATION TEST (CPT)
CPT’s are used to determine the engineering properties of soils as well as delineating the soil stratigraphy. CPT’s are utilized for a variety of reasons including geotechnical applications, environmental site characterizations, and groundwater monitoring.
- FIELD PERMEABILITY TESTING
This method provides comparisons of rates of moisture infiltration through soil types. This is essential in soil and groundwater remediation and assessing the size and location of the plume.
- DIFFICULT ACCESS DRILLING
FGE can perform borings in all situations ranging from inside residential homes to open preconstruction fields. We are equipped to complete the task no matter how constraining of a space it may be.
