About Us

A F Howland Associates was formed in 1981 to provide an independent practice offering a specialist service in geotechnical engineering and related disciplines.

We have a broad based expertise in both soft and hard rock conditions for a variety of engineering situations which include roads and highways, tunnels, earthworks, slope stability, and foundations

We have traditionally provided management contracting for civil engineering investigations and have routinely undertaken projects in both the public and private sectors for individual construction projects as well as major term contracts.

In addition, we offer a full consultancy in geotechnics, as well the complementary disciplines of geo-environmental and hydrogeological engineering. Our particular philosophy of approach is based on providing practical engineering solutions. This has found particular favour with client organisations and contractors alike.

FEATURED SERVICES

Subsidence Investigations and Analysis

Subsidence is a major cause of failure of structures due to excessive settlement of foundations. There can be a multitude of causal factors including: Instability due to the presence of naturally occurring voids or unmapped mine shafts or workings, Settlement and compaction of soils due to percolation of water, Groundwater level fluctuations, Variation in the moisture content of clay soils

Cable Percussion Boring

Light-cable percussion is the most common drilling method used for geotechnical site or ground investigations. Depending upon access limitations and favourable ground conditions deep boreholes up to 50m depth can be formed. Light-cable percussion drilling uses a mobile rig with a winch of between one to two tonne capacity driven by a diesel engine and a tripod derrick of about 7m height. The derrick folds down so that the rig can be towed by a ...
