Instrumentation

Pile Driving Monitoring and Pile Dynamic Load Testing provide our geotechnical engineers with a unique feed-back on the geotechnical assumptions, and the project owner with the assurance that the required pile capacity has been demonstrated.

Cathie Associates’ sister company G-Octopus have been operating in this field for more than ten years, providing office and site expertise to major operators, giving courses to contractors and universities. The dedicated engineers are all certified up to Expert level, the highest possible certification level (with only ten currently active in the world).

G-Octopus are pioneering industry standards and constantly implementing new technologies, particularly in the area of under-water instrumentation. From both an operational and theoretical aspect we are acknowledged as one of the most reliable and knowledgeable subcontractors in the world.

Our engineers have implemented methodologies that make every driven pile a real-time tested pile, thus substantially optimising safety factors and pile design altogether.
