The geotechnical conditions of a site often have a large influence on the final design and position of a shaft, or of any structure for that matter. This article examines the methods used to investigate and acquire information for the assessment of the ground conditions and presents two selected case studies. An understanding of the site's geology and geomorphology is of great importance to the geotechnical assessment.
