The first step in any new project is determining the engineering characteristics of the soils. Preliminary geotechnical investigations include subsurface exploration (typically boring or trenches), laboratory testing, and preparation of a comprehensive geotechnical report which provides detailed grading and foundation design recommendations.
Most projects begin with the performance of a preliminary geotechnical investigation. These investigations are focused on providing detailed grading and foundation design recommendations. We focus on providing a highly “buildable” design that allows projects to proceed in a cost-effective and expeditious manner. We provide preliminary geotechnical investigations for a wide variety of projects including:
- Commercial / Industrial Buildings
- Distribution Warehouses
- Retail Shopping Centers
- Single-Family Residences
- Residential Tracts
- Retaining Walls
Results are presented in easy to follow, well-organized reports that provide the geotechnical design parameters in a concise format. Reports provide the detailed technical data required by other design professionals, and professionals and are easily interpreted by construction personnel.
