About the construction

Obtaining the data necessary to design foundations of structures and to revitalise buildings and historic underground structures. The tests led to determination of geotechnical parameters which reduced the cost of foundation work. 

Due to precise soil and groundwater contamination tests, a very challenging project on a brownfield site was carried out without any problems.


“Within the design phase of the Warsaw Brewery complex, we cooperated with Geotest, a company that often supports us in key projects. They are specialists with whom we have worked with for more than two decades, and in whom we have full confidence with regards to environmental site assessments and geological tests.”

The key to the success of this project was to design and carry out the soil tests in such a way, so that the existing historical buildings and underground infrastructure were taken into account. The complexity of the project was additionally influenced by the necessary arrangements with the Conservator of Monuments and the Office of Environmental Protection.
