Subsurface Investigations

The geotechnical design process is a crucial step before you build.  Gaining an understanding of the subsurface conditions at your site is necessary to design the appropriate foundations for your structures and roadways and estimate the time and extent of earthwork to budget for your project. 

GTSI can evaluate the subsurface data from geotechnical drilling and Standard Penetration Testing at your site and compile the findings from each boring location in a geotechnical report identifying the materials encountered and provide foundation design recommendations.

Geotechnical Consulting Services

Once your construction project is underway, GTSI can utilize our breadth of geotechnical experience on the ground at construction sites to provide value-engineering recommendations to save you time and money implementing wise geotechnical solutions for your project.  GTSI evaluates the site conditions and reviews the original plans providing alternate methodologies to enable you to implement the best value solutions that also ensure your roadways and structures are on solid ground.
