A Geotechnical Investigation is a necessary, preliminary step in planning a construction project. A thorough investigation yields critical project information pertaining to foundation, roadway section, and retaining wall design. Subsurface conditions that can significantly impact project design and costs include shallow bedrock, shallow groundwater, slope instability, and compressible or expansive soils. The early identification of subsurface conditions and potential problems is often a major reason behind an on-time, on-budget project.
Nelson Engineering works with owners and design professionals to develop a scope of work appropriate to the project and local conditions. We offer geotechnical reports with clear and succinct foundation design parameters plus earthwork and excavation information. Our geotechnical staff has over 30 years of experience performing investigations and analyses for utilities, roads, dams, bridges, subdivisions, commercial buildings, and residences. Our in-house soils laboratory and construction materials testing facilities allow for an integrated project approach.
