Tight Access Geotechnical Drilling Sunshine Coast
Known for our professional geotechnical drilling and soil testing services, Ground Drill also offers tight access drilling across all areas of the Sunshine Coast with our tight access drill rig.
Are you finding it difficult to source a suitable drilling rig to complete your geotechnical site investigation on the Sunshine Coast? Do you have a site with low overhead power lines or cables, restricted access or a confined work area? Do you require drilling near a canal, swampy ground or river catchment area where you need to be ultra-conscious of your environmental footprint?
Geotechnical investigations to evaluate construction sites and confirm subsurface conditions are often required in small backyards, between buildings or at other confined sites. This is when a tight access rig is essential.
Tight Access Drill Rig
Our GD02 Mini Crawler Rig is perfect for those times when there is tight or narrow access to a site, for when minimal ground pressure due to environmental considerations is necessary or when overhead restrictions limit the head height of a traditional drilling rig.
Difficult or Limited Access?
Depending on the site you may have limited space to work in or limited access and a conventional drilling rig will not be able to complete the geotechnical drilling required.
Our mini crawler rig is perfect for these restricted access drilling jobs - small enough to gain access yet powerful enough to complete the necessary site evaluations.
As most geotechnical drilling is outside in the open this is one aspect that can easily be forgotten. Is there a possible height restriction due to overhead power cables, low hanging branches or other unforeseen obstacles enforcing a height restriction?
Ground Drill’s tight access rig only requires a couple of metres of headroom.
It is essential to avoid damaging the environment when the geotechnical drilling site is near waterways or protected flora or fauna sites, leaving only the smallest physical footprint.
Any drilling job will create some aspect of disturbance but with our mini portable rig we can keep this to a minimum, leaving as little impact as possible.
We can help no matter the reason for your tight access drilling requirements!
Ground Drill’s compact, rubber-tracked rig coupled with our skilled geotechnical drilling operators, will get your job done right - safely, efficiently and within budget.
