An area, near Chania (Crete Island) is planned to be a place of an SME Park with roads and buildings of low industrial activity. A geotechnical survey is needed along with the design of the park. In the frame of the geotechnical project a geophysical survey was planned in order to detect the stratigraphy and possible local features (voids or loose zones) which will further help in positioning additional to the existing boreholes and the design of the park. The relief of limestone top along with confined zones of cracked limestone and the thickness of surface layer with loose material have been detected explaining the presence of the observed land subsidence. Pole-dipole array with the use of MOST technique for the ERT profiles and GPR profiles have given valuable information for the geologists and civil engineers needs. New boreholes have been positioned after the geophysical survey with their sampling confirming the geophysical results.
