photo-06-12-2016-12-00-22Lankelma is helping the University of Hertfordshire meet its ambitious building plans.

Lankelma’s UK15 track-truck and its UK17 wheeled rig carried out 90 piezocone CPTs and 30 dissipation tests through sands and silts in two visits to the University earlier this year.

The University’s 2020 estates vision will see upgrading of existing facilities, plus construction of new academic buildings and ‘zero carbon’ student accommodation. Data gathered during the recent investigation will be used in the next phase of development, which includes new lecture theatres.

Lankelma carried out testing on behalf of ground investigation contractor Geotechnical Engineering. Its Contract Manager William Rigs said: “The entire project was handled incredibly professionally from start to finish. Lankelma’s team was very reliable and always helpful.”
