a bit about us
In 1964 James Fairbrother, a mechanical engineer by profession; started a part-time waterwell business in Cape Town. Using the concept of a fork lift, he built a drilling rig to install waterwells for residential dwellings and farmers.
In 1974 the company expanded its services into the geotechnical market by offering geotechnical drilling investigation services in addition to its waterwell business.

A typical geotechnical engineering project begins with a review of project needs to define the required material properties. Then follows a site investigation of soil, rock, fault distribution and bedrock properties on and below an area of interest to determine their engineering properties including how they will interact with, on or in a proposed construction.
