Geotechnical Services

for WA and the NT

The Results You WANT

WANT Geotechnics provides a client-focused, competitive alternative for all facets of geotechnical engineering and testing.


Our independent team can work on your project 7 days a week to deliver on time and budget.

We have developed strategic relationships with engineering consultants, architects, surveyors, earthworks contractors, and environmental consultants who have complementary skill sets thereby enabling us to combine our expertise to deliver multi-disciplinary projects throughout the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

Our Services and Capabilities


Remote Work

We have delivered numerous reports for remote community housing, infrastructure and road upgrades in remote regions of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. This often involves Traditional Owner engagement and liaising with Land Councils to get efficient and positive outcomes for all stakeholders. Whether your project is within the McDonnell Regional Council Shire (south of Alice Springs), the remote communities of the Roper Gulf, or the Anindilyakwa Land Council on Groote Eylandt, we can assist and draw on our knowledge of the soils and potential geotechnical constraints.


We offer a full range of construction materials testing to AS1289 at a NATA accredited soils laboratory. We have successfully worked in tandem with environmental consultants and recovered samples for asbestos, acid sulphate soil, and contamination testing. WANT Geotechnics also offers pile integrity testing from Cross Hole Sonic Logging to the capture of CAPWAP data. During construction, we can provide compaction certification, in-situ CBR testing of pavements, soil thermal and electrical resistivity, proof rolls, trench stability inspections and certifications.

WANT Geotechnics can take you from desktop study through to investigation for the final design. In the resource sector we can provide the geotechnical input to your gravel search, the upgrade to your mining infrastructure as well as early stage geotechnical scouting to meet NT EPA requirements for Oil & Gas well sites. 

Commercial & Residential

WANT Geotechnics can assist with all site classifications and soil tests for local builders, including subdivisions in Muirhead, Northcrest, and Zuccoli. We have worked alongside Charles Darwin University on their multi storey Darwin CBD Campus, the $250m Darwin Waterfront Hotel, the 10m deep State Square underground Car Park, and nearby Art Gallery, giving WANT Geotechnics an unparalleled understanding of the Darwin CBD geology.

From pavements and taxiways, for the next generation of aircraft, to remote satellite tracking installations, WANT Geotechnics can provide geotechnical assistance for your next Defence project.
