Geotechnical Investigations

Performing a geotechnical investigation pre-design or pre-construction helps to identify subsurface soil conditions and their potential impact on development cost, which can be invaluable information.

Geotechnical investigations are also routinely performed post-construction to determine possible causes for poor performance or failure.
