Ground condition model of superficial deposits
Land use planning is still mostly done in 2D, and in many situations it is the most effective way to describe soil properties. A model of ground conditions is an easy-to-understand 2D map on the geology and constructability of the target area.
However, the ground condition model is based on 3D information, and hence its source data can be used within 3D design models as well. Areas that are challenging for construction purposes are clearly visible in the model.
The method is especially useful in the early phases of the planning process when most of the construction costs are decided. A ground condition model is suitable for studying the constructability of small or larger areas as well. However, site-specific investigations are needed in addition to geological ground condition model for construction design.
- Planning for the study
- Collecting existing and relevant data, and analysing and interpreting it
- Required additional field studies
- A report, including a digital ground condition model of the design area based on ground investigations, slope and the thickness of fine-grained sediments
- You will get a ground condition model of your target area.
- You avoid unpleasant surprises and extra costs due to geological conditions in your construction design.
