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

Trial Pit Excavations

This technique is normally used for recovering near surface large bulk samples of granular soil or if close visual examination of the strata is required. The main advantage of this method when compared to percussion drilling is the relative speed with which the work can be carried out. The disadvantage is the level of surface disturbance suffered and the difficulty in carrying out the effective reinstatement of the excavations. Trial pits can be ...

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) Test

The California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test is a penetration test developed by the California State Highway Department and is used to determine the mechanical strength of a soil. The test can be carried out on site or in the laboratory. The VBR test is carried out using a cylindrical plunger which penetrates the soil at a given rate. The relationship between the force and penetration can then be used to calculate the CBR value of the soil being tested.
