Ground Investigation Reports (GIR)

As defined by Eurocode 7: Geotechnical Design, Ruddlesden geotechnical produces both Ground Investigation Reports and Geotechnical Design Reports.

The Ground Investigation Report would normally consist of a presentation of all available geotechnical information including geological features and relevant data, together with a geotechnical evaluation of the information and provision of characteristic parameters for design, stating the assumptions made in the interpretation of the test results.
