Details:  Major Slope Failure

Services: Slope Stability Assessment

ASL operated as geotechnical consultants for the analysis of a large slope failure of land adjacent to a large residential property.

The slope slipped by approximately 20m affecting an access track and tennis court and was caused by heavy rainfall and damaged surface water drainage.

ASL provided an initial assessment of the slope together with the design and implementation of ground investigation works to determine the cause and assist with the reinstatement works which required liaison with the insurance company.  ASL’s role of the project included the following:

  • Inspection of slope following initial failure
  • Preliminary slope stability assessment
  • Recommendations for short term actions and precautions
  • Ground investigation works
  • Recommendation for the design of the reinstatement works
