Complex Geotechnical Design & Proof Engineering

Construction engineering is critical to the success of any major mining and construction project. Our approach is to collaborate with you and your contractor to identify opportunities within the construction methodology for purpose-suitable civil and mine design.


Complex Geotechnical Design 

Our geotechnical team are experienced in soft soils, rock and complex tunnel geotechnical engineering; gained from working on some of the biggest transport infrastructure and mining projects in Australia and internationally 

We undertake condition surveys for both mine and hydro-power stations and provide input and review into ground control and management plans for mine operations.  

Past successful projects include major settlement impact assessments and design of monitoring systems for various major infrastructure projects, working platform designs for lifting equipment and earth retaining systems. 


Proof Engineering 

As projects become more complex, independent review and proof engineering of designs and confirmation of technical accuracy and competence becomes more important to the success of projects. Working collaboratively, we draw on our past detailed design, temporary works and complex geotechnical experience, always seeking to develop best for project outcomes. 

Our philosophy is to respect the required role independently, yet add value wherever a positive impact to the overall project can be made. pitt&sherry brings best practice technical knowledge, combined with local delivery experience to appreciate the challenges outside of the direct technical solution.  

We recognise the importance of delivering on program which often requires seeking early agreement with the designers and construction teams to resolve issues that arise during the proof engineering process.

pitt&sherry has the capability to provide proof engineering review to all aspects of civil design from building projects, roads and bridges to deep tunnels and their associated ventilation shafts.
