Geotechnical Engineering

Dr.techn. Olav Olsen offers geotechnical engineering and design for all phases of construction projects, from sampling of ground conditions, concept studies and planning phase to interaction phases and detailed design and site follow-up. We assist in all scales of projects, large and small, throughout the country and internationally within the business areas we operate.

Through established partners, we offer seamless implementation of ground sampling and laboratory tests. In areas where there have been landslides and avalanches, we will be able to perform inspections, and deliver associated measures for hedging and further investigation with assessments of safety analyzes and further actions.

 We offer:

  • Foundation of buildings and bridges
  • Re-foundation
  • Pile calculations
  • Load-bearing capacity calculations and load analysis, and associated measures to meet requirements for differential loads
  • Support structures for construction pits and other interventions, such as various types of sheet piling and other bracing options
  • Stability calculations
  • Construction site follow-up

We hold the Central Approval as the responsible designer geotechnics grade 3 according to the Building Application Regulations (SAK10)

All our employees are highly qualified at Phd, and M.Sc. level, and have several years of experience from industry-oriented R&D projects. Several of our advisers have extensive practical experience. You are welcome to contact us for a discussion of geotechnical issues.
