Rock Engineering and Slope Stability

SRK Consulting has extensive experience in Rock engineering for tunnels, road cuttings and underground excavations.

Our team of engineers and geoscientists provide integrated rock engineering services for all stages of projects from the initial investigation, through design and construction. Ground support design and optimisation for severe conditions is our specialty. Stability and stress analyses are carried out using state-of-the-art numerical techniques where appropriate. We also assist in the design, implementation and optimisation of monitoring systems, including the selection and procurement of instrumentation. Risk assessments and the identification of hazards are an integral part of the investigations.

We offer on site training in data acquisition and we have produced standard operating procedures and manuals for several major clients. We also conduct safety audits and reviews.
