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

Dynamic Probing

Dynamic probing involves driving a cylindrical sacrificial or fixed cone into the ground using a high frequency percussive hammer. The diameter and angle of the cone will depend upon the chosen method. For example the heavy or super heavy dynamic probe has an angle of 90 degrees. The cone is attached to a 1m section steel rod with a nominal diameter of approximately 35mm and graduation markings set at 100mm intervals. Depending upon the chosen method, ...

Window and Windowless Sampling

Percussive window or windowless sampling involves driving cylindrical steel tubes into the ground using a high frequency percussive hammer. Usually the hammer is driven by a hydraulic power pack, but electric and pneumatic hammers are also available to suit particular site conditions. The drilling rig is normally track or crawler mounted and some of the rigs are small enough to be driven through a conventional sized door way. However, in areas where ...
