CQ Soil Testing provides a range of services which extend well beyond on-site drilling. Whether you are involved in commercial or industrial development, building a new home, altering/extending your existing home or requiring a Wastewater/Sewerage Design for your unsewered property, our expert team can deliver services to meet both your needs and regulatory authorities’ requirements.
CQ Soil Testing provides Site Classifications for large subdivisions and individual residential, commercial and industrial allotments. Our modern and capable drill rigs and laboratory facilities enable us to carry out both the necessary fieldwork and laboratory testing investigation components in a timely and efficient manner. Our collaboration with professional engineers enables these findings to be interpreted and reflected through appropriate footing designs for proposed buildings and dwellings.
CQ Soil Testing recommends a Site Classification be carried out during the conditional period of a purchase contract when purchasing land. A small investment at this time will highlight any problematic issues that may incur substantial additional costs for footings and foundations at a later date.
When purchasing land for your new home, particularly if a larger block in a rural residential zone, it is necessary to determine whether the allotment is serviced by a reticulated sewerage system. If this is not the case, you will need to consider an On-site Sewerage Facility (OSSF).
CQ Soil Testing can provide clients with on-site testing, advice and an OSSF design to tailor that of their needs while complying with Australian Standards (AS1547:2012) and local regulatory requirements. Upon receiving our final product, which includes detailed design drawings and a comprehensive report, clients must submit to council for approval prior to distributing to a licensed plumber for installation.
When purchasing an existing home, CQ Soil Testing recommends that purchasers contact their local Council to carry out a compliance search or alternatively, contract a specialist to survey the existing septic system.
CQ Soil Testing has an in-house experience draftsman who can provide a number of services to ensure your building and OSSF meet QBCC and council regulatory requirements.
