Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is the study and exploration of the subsurface, and to determine the engineering characteristic of the subgrade as it relates to the design and construction of proposed structures and/or improvements. The geotechnical information is used by structural engineers, civil engineers, architects, contractors, developers and/or owners. This information includes strength or loading characteristics of the soil and/or rock at the site, as well as predictions of the behavior of the subsurface when subjected to load changes caused by the project.

Services provided include:

  • Recommendation for deep and/or shallow foundations
  • Recommendations for the design of floor slabs
  • Pavement design recommendations
  • Assessment of karst (sinkhole) activity and repair
  • Slope stability analysis and design
  • Recommendation for the design of retaining walls
  • Retaining wall design
  • Seismic Studies (Shear wave velocity testing, Site specific Studies)
  • Expert witness services
  • Dam analysis and design
