Slav Tchepak

In his 35 years as a geotechnical engineer, Slav has experienced a wide variety of specialist geotechnical work, including site investigation; laboratory and field testing of soils and rock; and design and supervision of a variety of foundations before electing to specialise in the field of piled foundations.

Experience in piling has included design, tendering and construction supervision of numerous works, including major projects, in addition to all aspects of pile testing. While still carrying our design works for major projects, he now has a particular interest in the effects of pile construction on pile design and performance. As Chief Engineer his duties include assisting management with training and development of less experienced engineers.

Slav has authored a number of technical papers that have been published in various national and international publications and has presented formal technical lectures on pile design, pile testing and contract administration in a number of universities within Australia and also at various technical forums internationally.
