Geotechnical Engineering

Our geotechnical engineering services are supported by an onsite, nationally accredited laboratory that can test soil, aggregate, concrete, asphalt and other construction materials.

We use state-of-practice techniques and test procedures to investigate, analyze, and develop geotechnical engineering recommendations and designs for simple to complex problems relating to groundwater, soil, or rock. Our geotechnical engineering services include:

  • Subsurface Explorations
  • Pavement Analysis & Design
  • Construction and Soil Testing and Inspection
  • Auger and Rotary Drilling
  • Insitu Cone Penetration Testing (CPT)
  • Rock Coring
  • Laboratory Testing
  • Foundation Recommendations
  • Utility Installation Recommendations
  • Settlement Analysis
  • Slope Stability Analysis
  • Borrow Site Evaluation
  • Footings and Open Hole Inspection
  • Rebar Inspection
  • Structural Elements Inspection
  • Earthwork Inspection
  • Documentation (CDOT and city forms, requirements, reporting structures)
  • Concrete and Grout (slump, air content, temperature, cylinders, cube and beam specimens)
  • Compressive and Flexural Strength Tests
  • Laboratory Testing (moisture content, gradation, Atterberg Limits, proctors, analytical testing)
  • Asphalt Testing (coring, 9-point thickness measurement, AC content, bulk specific gravity)
  • Shallow and Deep Foundation to support low to high rise buildings
  • Shallow and Deep Foundation to support large structures, e.g. bridges and wind towers
  • Earth Retention Structures Design (cast-in-place, MSE, soil nail, tangent and secant pile, soldier pile, sheet pile, shoring)
  • Geological Hazard Study
  • Detention Structures Evaluations
  • Forensic Evaluations
  • Constructibility Evaluations
  • ​Instrumentations and Analyses
