Our engineering geodesy department has been offering its services since 2000. The deodesy department is an integral part of the complex and demanding projects of SG Geotechnika - whether is it to obtain the necessary data in the geotechnical monitoring when constructing underground, landslide mapping, or measuring and calculating the accurate position of objects. The engineering geodesy department is equipped with the Leica and Trimble geodetic technology, which allows to meet the most demanding requirements of customers in the Czech Republic and abroad.
An indisputable advantage of the use of geophysical methods is their speed, mobility, non-destructive nature, environmental cleanliness, and economic savings compared to classic methods used in engineering and geological surveys. Geophysical surveys allow information to be obtained that complements data from drilled wells, drifts, and tests, and therefore enables more precise interpretation.
Engineering geology under the auspices of SG Geotechnika has a long tradition founded by the originator of the branch in the Czech Republic prof. Quido Záruba. Our employees’ expertise derives from our years of experience with demanding projects and our knowledge of local engineering and geological conditions. This expertise allows us to prepare solutions for the most demanding tasks in the industry and to take part in implementing major engineering projects.
The company provides OSH services, with a focus on support for OSH coordinators on types of construction sites, including the construction of the infrastructural projects, building projects, and water projects. Our company has extensive construction experience. Our services include serving as OSH coordinator on construction sites during both the preparatory phase (OSH plan, consultancy, expert information) and the project implementation phase (OSH plan and regular updates, OSH construction site monitoring, contractor coordination, organization of OSH inspection days, negotiations with contracting authorities and contractors, etc.). We possess all the necessary authorisations for this work in accordance with the statutory requirements imposed in Act No. 309/2006 Coll.
Making use of aerial technology for aerial inspections, thermographic surveys, and mapping is an effective technique which is especially suitable because of the overall safety of the method and the lack of any requirement to halt work or transport, because it represents a contact-free methodology. SG Geotechnika holds an "Authorisation to Provide Aerial Services Using Unmanned Aircraft" issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. Currently, the company makes use of 2 unmanned systems (UAS) featuring cameras that record images in three spectral ranges. Thanks to this equipment, SG Geotechnika can provide all photogrammetric and thermographic imaging for various industries.
We make use of a broad range of the latest geotechnical programming systems SG Geotechnika offers comprehensive solutions to all tasks that arise in engineering practice, including solutions to highly complex geotechnical issues. To do so, the company employs a broad selection of the latest programming systems in the context of its many years of experience in the field. Analyses are carried out in keeping with harmonized European norms.
Our company’s underground structure unit employs a number of mining and construction specialists. This allows us to focus on geotechnical supervision of complex construction projects. Gradually, owing to interest on the part of investors and underground structure experts, the company—inspired by leading European tunnelling companies—decided to expand its range of services, which are now available under the name "Underground Structure Geotechnical Monitoring".
We offer onsite tests on construction sites as part of ground work inspections, surface soil and rock tests, underground soil and rock tests, and soil and rock tests in prepared wells; stress tests of pilots and micropilots; measurement of base element integrity using ultrasound and palpation; project design, and comprehensive geotechnical and construction monitoring.
When investigating applied research tasks in structural and environmental geotechnics, SG Geotechnika takes advantage of its own Geotechnical Issue Numerical Modelling Unit, its geomechanics laboratory equipped with the latest technology, and an Onsite Test and Monitoring Unit. The company works closely with universities, the Academy of Sciences, and other scientific institutions, depending on the nature of the task at hand. As a result, the experience and know-how of SG Geotechnika teams is always up-to-date. Results of our research tasks and projects are available in a number of Czech and foreign publications.
The operation of any organization may entail a number of security and environmental risks. Letting us assume these risks and minimize their impact may bring significant benefit to the company, both in terms of its earnings and its reputation. SG Geotechnika offers engineering services for environmental protection: permits as indicated in the Air Protection Act, Waste Management Act, and Water Act.
