Electrical-Resistivity-Tomography (ERT)

With our new Terrameter LS2 we are able, to offer a geophysical measurement method, which allows extensive exploration and visualization of subsurface structures.

Using the ERT it is possible, to generate a 2-D or 3-D ground model, using injection of electrical current into the subsurface. In addition to exploring the general geological conditions, this high-resolution measurement method enables us to localize slide planes, to quantify landslide masses and to detect groundwater and cavities.

Please ask for capabilities and services.

Presence hours in our office

Dear Business Partners,

The circumstances that the corona pandemic is currently causing us, have prompted us to take special care for our clients, partners and employees.

We currently mainly work from our home office. The employees can be reached via their normal landline numbers, mobile numbers and of course also by email. Agreed appointments of course remain on our side.

Unannounced visits at our office rooms cannot be received at this time.

We hope for your understanding!

Engineering geology, hydrogeology and geotechnical engineering

Since 1998 our company Baugeologisches Büro Bauer has been actively offering services within the scope of engineering geology, hydrogeology and geotechnical engineering. At the beginning of 2005 the company was transformed into a private limited company in which shares are held by SSF Engineers, Prof. Dr. habil. Kurosch Thuro (full professor of engineering geology at the TU Munich) and the company's founder and managing director Markus Bauer.

We consider ourselves experts at the interface between earth science and engineering, deliberately concentrating on the natural scientific perspective in finding solutions for issues associated with earth-structure interactions. We are convinced that this is the only way to ensure a proper subsoil and underground modeling, to provide representative parameters for planning and calculation and to realistically assess and minimize potential residual risks.

Our working relationship with SSF Engineers facilitates interdisciplinary cooperation and creates additional synergies during the optimization of planning issues. Our personal contact with the Technical University of Munich (TU München) ensures that we are in line with the state of the art and the latest developments in scientific research.

Furthermore, it supports our own research and enables special methods of investigation in the soil and rock laboratory. Additionally, the outstanding expertise of Prof. Dr. Thuro is guaranteed. Our expert competencies are documented through the successful completion of numerous projects worldwide. Meeting the demands of standard requirements has often not been enough – we frequently have had to clarify special issues and meet advanced challenges.

These achievements are made possible by a well-established team of employees, who are willing to bring their extensive skills and personal strengths to bear in solving projects to the satisfaction of our clients and partners.

We hope, we were able to give you an impression of our range of services and we are looking forward to a possible cooperation with your company. Please contact us!
