Geotechnical Investigation

Geotechnical investigation is a crucial process in civil engineering and construction. It involves assessing the physical properties and behaviour of the Earth’s materials at a construction site. This investigation helps engineers understand soil, rock, and groundwater conditions, ensuring safe and stable construction. Geotechnical engineers collect soil samples, conduct tests, and analyze data to determine bearing capacity, settlement potential, and slope stability. The findings guide foundation design, excavation planning, and risk assessment, minimizing potential hazards and ensuring the longevity and safety of structures. Geotechnical investigations are essential for projects ranging from buildings and bridges to dams and highways.

We provide high-quality geotechnical services for residential, commercial, industrial, roads and airport projects in Alberta.
