Lonestar Alpha Labs undertake onshore/offshore ground investigations for a wide variety of civil and industrial construction, infrastructure and pipeline projects. We pride ourselves by adopting the same professional approach to both large multi-disciplinary investigation projects as well as small simple structures. Our Investigation is supervised by highly qualified experienced geotechnical engineers and geologists.
