Developments in geotechnical site investigation to reduce construction risk

Despite improvements in technology and materials it is still surprisingly rare for infrastructure construction projects to achieve programme and budget targets. “Unforeseen ground conditions” are the most widely quoted reason for these costly failures, but is there more that could be done to reduce uncertainty? Geohazard and contamination risk can often be reduced by well-integrated and appropriately phased site investigations resulting in a robust ground model.
