Geotechnical Investigations

Geotechnical investigation services are performed to obtain information on the physical properties of soil, earthworks, pavements, and foundations for proposed or existing structures. Our clients use the data obtained by our geotechnical engineers to determine foundation designs, prepare for soil improvement work, and to properly lay soil, asphalt, and concrete.

Pavement Construction Supervision

We supervise and control pavement material application and quality using a multitude of tests and equipment such as the troxler, the sand cone test (verifies density and moisture content requirements), the plate bearing test, and others. Laboratory testing is performed on gathered soil, asphalt and concrete samples to ensure quality.

Equipment & Testing:

  • Troxler (nuclear density guage)
  • Sand Cone Test
  • Plate & Dial Gauge (bearing and deflection test)
  • Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (TRL and light model)
  • Pavement Coring
  • Laboratory Tests
