The Geopractica Group

Geopractica is a South African based specialist geotechnical company formed in 1977 and is privately owned. The company operates from its own offices and laboratories in Florida, Gauteng, with branch offices and yards located in Diepsloot, Gauteng and Henneman, Freestate.  Laboratories are established from time to time at various sites in Southern Africa.

The company operates on an international basis with extensive experience on remote sites in desert, savannah and tropical environments, particularly in southern and central Africa.

Originally the company was formed with the aim of offering a rapid, high quality and commercially oriented soils testing facility, primarily for the construction industry. With the introduction of additional professional qualified personnel and with a range of rotary core drills and piling rigs, the firm was able to significantly widen its scope of services which now include foundation investigation, geotechnical analysis, road pavement design, quality assurance and control, rotary core drilling, curtain grouting, piling and lateral support.

Over the years the firm has grown steadily with the introduction of professional and technical staff, together with additional plant and equipment.
