Essential Qualities of a Geotechnical Drilling Company

by | Jul 4, 2022

With a huge selection of potential geotechnical drilling contractors on offer, it can be difficult to know who to believe. There are a number of highly experienced drilling teams out there, all of whom are claiming to be the ‘best geotechnical drilling company around for the job’, but how do you identify if they truly suit your specific requirements?

Don’t worry; the team at Borehole Solutions are happy to help! We understand how overwhelming the decision can be. This blog should make things a little easier for you and help you select the best geotechnical drilling company for your project.

What Experience does the Geotechnical Drilling Company have? 

Understandably, the process of borehole drilling requires a great deal of technical precision. A simple error could have disastrous consequences. With this in mind, it is a good idea to research into a company’s proven industrial experience prior to working with them.

Borehole Solutions is an industry-leading geotechnical drilling company with over two decades of experience. Our expert team has worked on countless private and commercial projects over the years, so you can be rest assured that you are in safe hands. The company has expanded over the last few years into the global markets, pursuing the North American and European markets successfully.

Trust and Teamwork

When you are working with potentially dangerous machinery, you need to know that your crew members have your back. The team should have a strong bond that has developed through hours upon hours of working together on-site. In recent times, new regulations have been published with regards to health and safety improvements.

For example, our sonic drilling rigs use a hands-free operating system through the wireless control features, which dramatically reduces the risk of injury. However, there is always going to be a chance of accidents happening when working with heavy machinery. Therefore, it is crucial to be able to rely on your team to keep an eye out and help, should things ever go downhill.

Does the Geotechnical Drilling Company Use Innovative Thinking?

Unfortunately, like anything in life, there is a chance of mistakes being made – no geotechnical drilling company is exempt from this. This means it is essential that the team can think on their feet and adapt to the situation at hand.

The drilling industry is influenced by many variables, including the weather… which in Britain, is most likely to be wet! Our work does not stop though – we need to deliver drilling services come rain or shine, meaning we may need to be flexible. This is particularly important for jobs with restricted access or those in ‘awkward’ areas, where we need to use innovation to complete the job. 

Quality Control

Any credible geotechnical drilling company should have these in place – if not, then it is a red flag alert! Quality control measures ensure that the installed borehole is safe and efficient, meaning that the work has been completed to the highest possible standard.

At Borehole Solutions, we conduct a variety of tests throughout the installation process. We like to guarantee that your investment can be relied upon, as well as remain certain that we have finished the job as best as possible.
