Bore holes are to be drilled at locations across the centre of Bracknell to prepare the way for the town centre regeneration.
Soil samples will be collected and the structure of the ground will be assessed over the next couple of months in a geotechnical survey of the area.
Bracknell Regneration Partnership said the work was crucial to help it understand the structure of the soil and rocks beneath the town centre.
Helen Barnett, marketing manager for BRP, said: “This is an important preparation step that must be carried out before any demolition or construction work commences.
“We will be endeavouring to keep disruption to a minimum and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, said: “Geotechnical surveying is vital for planning the construction of the buildings for Bracknell’s new town centre.
“It is another practical sign the regeneration is getting closer and the council and BRP are committed to making it happen.”
