Title of DMS
NSC D - Building, Construction and Civil Engineering
Site Investigation – First Revision
This Malaysian Standard gives recommendations for the investigation of sites for the purposes of assessing their suitability for the construction of civil engineering and building works and of acquiring knowledge of the characteristics of a site that could affect the design and construction
of such work and the security of neighbouring land and property.
NOTE: The use of soil and rock as construction materials is only treated briefly; further information is given in BS 6031.
This standard provides guidance on the application of MS EN 1997-1:2012 and MS EN 1997-2:2015 and the related test standards cited therein.
It does not provide guidance on investigations for contamination or naturally elevated concentrations of potentially hazardous substances (these are dealt with in BS 10175). Nor does it provide guidance on investigations for ground gas (these are dealt with in BS 8576:2013). However, it does provide guidance on the integration of geotechnical
investigations with investigations for contamination or ground gas and other types of investigations (e.g. archaeological).
