We are providing the following images for the benefit of our many Clients and other personnel throughout ODOT, to give a pictorial overview of the work that our Drilling Crews perform, to gather the important Geotechnical data that makes the design of Roadways and Structures safer, longer-lasting, and of higher quality, for our ultimate customers, the motoring public.
Our Drillers work on the road...
...and off the road
We work on dry land...
...and on the water
Our Drillers will take any road to the site, no matter how remote
And if no road exits, we'll make our own
Our drillers go to great lengths (and heights) to get the drill rig on site
Here are some more pictures of our Drillers, hard at work...
Running the earth auger
Drilling and sampling in soils
Working on the railroad is nothing new to our drillers
And we do bridges too
Setting up some traffic control
Coring through bedrock
Some of our final product: Rock Core Samples
An installed Inclinometer Casing
