Test Pit Excavation

Why are test pits performed?

 

Generally test pits are excavated to examine an existing foundation, or to determine whether an area is suitable for building construction. Test pit investigation is also a method used to explore depth of rock and ground water.

 

How are Test Pits performed​

Test pits can be excavated using two different methods, Hand excavation and an excavator.

Test pits are excavated along exterior walls, neighboring properties and columns to determine the depth of footings.

Another general reason why test pits are excavated is to determine whether or not the footings are sitting on soil, piles or bedrock.

Test pits are generally excavated in areas such as cellars, basements, vacant land and sidewalks.
