BPC India is able to provide full scale service for in-house foundation engineering and ground improvement projects including their scoping, planning, site investigation, design & construction supervision and forensic work.

We are Forefront in Offering Geotechnical Field Assessment in, Ground Improvement works, Recommendation of foundation, Slope Stability Analysis by Numerical Methods (FD, FEM), Liquefaction Analysis.

BPC INDIA is the leading geotechnical consultant in Kolkata, has core strength of the comprehensive and optimal geotechnical solution in varied and challenging site conditions. This is achieved by using a truly integrated approach with clients to identify project requirements, undertake complex geotechnical studies and Core capabilities offered by the team are engineering geology, geotechnical engineering and Numerical Analysis in 2D and 3D for design optimization of the different foundation for infrastructure projects like Tunnels, Major Bridges, High embankments, Buildings, Steel plants, electrical / Solar power plants, Earthen Dams, Hydropower project, towers and Foundations for heavy load-bearing structures in different large waterways and Hilly terrain.

Some of our capabilities in foundation engineering and ground improvement includes:
Soil Structure interaction, Deep and shallow foundation design, Dynamic analysis, Constructability, Geogrid and Geofabrics, Construction supervision.

Our Infrastructure

Over the years we are generating new knowledge to develop technological improvements for the Geotechnical instruments in our instrumentation production workshop. We have our own medium to heavy-duty drilling machines which can dig up 150m.

Plant, equipment and drillers from BPC India are capable of undertaking any coring requirement on land or underwater.

In house workshop of Manufacturing, maintenance and customization of conventional techniques by matching the existing geological condition

We have a wide range of core barrels and drilling equipment based on site requirement, own transport system and preservation of samples when site is far from laboratory. Selection of equipment, assembling, disassembling and drilling work at any required place of the designer, be it in hill slope, valley or under water is what BPC is at its best.

Drilling and boring operations are planned under expert geologists. Our drillers are particular about any variations in the piezometric head within the borehole and response from the rotary rig, to capture even subtle change in the lithology being cored.

  • Medium / Heavy-duty percussion drilling winches.
  • Heavy-duty rotary diamond core drill machine.
  • Light duty geo machine.
  • Manual winches with tripod.
  • Dynamic cone penetration test machine.
  • Static cone penetration machine.
  • Pressuremeter test machine.
  • Field vane shear test machine.
  • Field CBR ( California Bearing Ratio) test machine.
  • Block vibration test machine.
  • Rapid moisture meter machine.
  • In Situ density core cutter machine.
  • Standard Penetration Test machine.
  • Field permeability single and double packer machine.
