What’s in a Lot Classification?
A number of items contribute to the price of a Geotech report and it is important that the extent of the testing is verified and clear to you before you purchase.
- How many bore holes are included?
- Are density tests part of the price or are they an extra cost?
- How deep does the testing allow for?
- What will I be charged to test deeper?
- If required, is a shrink/swell test included if the soil is highly reactive?
For you, the starting point is to ensure that the testing is going to be performed to Australian Standard AS2870. Wherever possible a vehicle mounted drilling machine should be used to achieve the necessary depth.
Based on the answers to these questions, a Lot Classification can generally cost between $700 and $1200 (enter your postcode to find your cost below).
