We offer drilling and soil testing for construction overseen and reported on by professional engineers. We define soil properties and identify conditions that may not be suitable for structural purposes and make recommendations to compensate for problems with the soil.
During mass earth we provide compaction inspections as required and then will do footing inspections prior to placement of foundations. At every step, soil inspections ensure that conditions on your site meet project specifications.
