Victoria and New South Wales
A 26 hectare site in Victoria and a 55 Hectare site in New South Wales were proposed sites for several 10 hectare greenhouses. Black Geotechnical was engaged to conducted preliminary geotechnical investigations for concept design. The investigations for both sites included desktop studies, detailed walkover surveys, CPTs and test pits. The use of CPTs instead of boreholes saved time and lowered costs, and also provided more detailed information, which was very important to allow assessment of the complex geology at the site in New South Wales.
