Geotechnical Engineering

Envirogeotech Consulting Inc. Geotechnical Engineering

A geotechnical investigation is necessary to determine and design the type of foundations, earthworks, and/or pavement subgrades required for the intended man-made structures to be built. The subsurface materials must be identified and characterized prior to initiating a construction project. Our geotechnical engineers and engineering geologist will help in providing a comprehensive yet cost effective geotechnical solution.
