WHAT WE DO

WHAT WE DO  

The main focus in our department is on site investigations and evaluations. At the same time we always strive for individual and efficient solutions for the respective issue/project. Within the ILF Group, we support other departments and often play a part in large-scale projects, both within Austria and abroad.

We handle all areas of engineering geology and hydrogeology, from reviewing basic data, geological/hydrogeological and geotechnical mapping, planning and performing site investigations, to construction site supervision and documentation, and groundwater monitoring.

We particularly specialize in issues related to structural stability and geohazards, but also in complex digital 3D geological and geotechnical models and hydrogeological issues. Furthermore, we deal with issues concerning waste and the mass utilization of construction works, as well as contaminated sites.

OUR TEAM

WHO YOU’LL BE WORKING WITH

Our department (with approximately 30 employees) is made up of Engineering Geologists as well as Hydrogeologists, and Technicians. We are a diverse team with colleagues of all ages. Depending on requirements, we form individual project teams and are additionally supported by Team Assistants. There is a dynamic and committed spirit in our team and are always ready and willing to help each other.

“We are a great team that innovatively deals with complex challenges related to engineering geology, hydrogeology and natural hazards. We are proud of the important contribution that we make in challenging projects, which ensures that construction projects can be built on safe and stable foundations. Our professional expertise, skills and commitment helps projects to be implemented safely and more sustainably.”

Project Manager

 “For me, being part of ILF is much more than just a job – ILF means open-mindedness, community, sustainable projects at the highest level, and the vision of a better world. Being part of this is both motivating and inspiring at the same time.”

Natural Hazards Expert

“What I particularly like about my work is the variety of tasks and challenges in projects. Through the constructive feedback from supervisors and the good cooperation with the other departments, a lot can be learnt. So, for me, success at work also becomes a motivation to get the best out of myself.”

Florian H.

Engineering & Environmental Geologist

  “What I really appreciate about my work is that I can fully rely on the good cohesion and collegiality in our team. It is thanks to this that we are able to very successfully cope with the constantly changing demands – such as the greatly increased volume of work last year in spring – despite the tense staffing situation.”

REFERENCE PROJECTS

 REFERENCE PROJECTS

  • Earthquake Recovery Project, Papua New Guinea:

    Papua New Guinea Earthquake Recovery Project: Securing at-risk energy infrastructure, using innovative solutions, after a severe earthquake (M=7.5) in Papua New Guinea. The project essentially involves slope stabilization using micropiles in hard-to-reach areas of the tropical rainforest.

  • Wanktunnel 3D Modell, Deutschland:

    Since 2021 – creation of a 3D model for the entire length of the Wank Tunnel, including the northern and southern access points; corridor width: 100 m around the axis of the bi-directional tunnel and 50 m around the axis of the accompanying rescue tunnel. The model shows the geological units, tectonic faults and the groundwater table.

    The extremely complex structural geology of the explored rock formations in the Wetterstein Mountains (Raibl Formation, Main Dolomite, Plattenkalk, Kössen Formation, Partnach Formation), which are heavily folded and sheared along numerous tectonic faults in the project area, posed a particular challenge.

  • Geohazard assessment Trans Adriatic Pipeline:

    Detailed geohazard risk project completed during the EPC phase of the project as part of the detailed design for the contractor. This involved intensive mapping of slope movements, surveying of seismically active faults, evaluation of karst areas and flood hazards from mountain streams and unregulated rivers. The risk assessment for the structure and planned mitigation measures included first and foremost avoidance of these zones, and subsequently the design of bored piles and horizontal drainage boreholes for slope stabilization, microtunnels and horizontal directional drilling.
