Geotechnical Consultant Services

To understand what a geotechnical investigation is, think of it as a way to understand the past, measure the present, and model the future.

Geotechnical investigations are required for the construction of buildings, (commercial or residential) underground structures, parking lots, traffic lanes, and many other types of projects.

The investigation consists of gathering information about the subsurface soil and rock conditions, to discern how stable the ground is. This is particularly important in establishing the foundation design of your project, to prevent the collapse of structure foundations.

Geotechnical Testing

The objective of geotechnical testing is to determine the nature of the soil and its bearing capacity. We provide a complete set of services to assure your project is completed according to your needs, including;


Soil mechanics and foundations, to provide technical information about the behavior of soil


Analysis of the stability of natural slopes, to limit the risk of landslides


Extensive studies of all retaining structures


Evaluation of groundwater, and wastewater treatment for isolated residences
