Geotechnical Engineering

Soil is the foundation for everything in the built environment — it can significantly impact any land development project. Understanding all the ways that soil can affect earthwork operations, pavements, and building foundations are critical to managing costs. Our experienced teams investigate and mitigate site soil and water challenges through comprehensive quality solutions and civil engineering integration. At PEA Group, we work in-house with our civil engineers to provide exceptional communication and reliable service throughout the life of every project. With expertise gained through decades of solving challenges in the field, we offer these services and more:

  • Geotechnical site investigation
  • Shallow and deep foundation recommendations
  • Site work recommendation
  • Seismic surface wave testing
  • Ground-penetrating radar (GPR)
  • Groundwater impact and control recommendation
  • Pavement design and evaluation
  • Retaining wall design and evaluation
  • Slope analysis
  • Infiltration testing
  • Soil resistivity testing

Proper investigation and evaluation prior to property acquisition or construction can eliminate costly issues in the long run. Our geotechnical engineering teams make your job easier by ensuring practical solutions founded on diverse project experience.
