For Phase II Investigations, our services are completed in accordance with the requirements of, and most up-to-date guidelines established by, local, state, and federal regulatory requirements. We can also provide sampling and testing for lead and asbestos.

Geotechnical Engineering

The structural integrity of any building begins with a good foundation. However, a good foundation can suffer distress and failure if the underlying soils are unable to provide adequate support. Therefore, it is imperative that an evaluation of existing site soil conditions be achieved and understood. We have performed geotechnical investigations for hundreds of industrial, commercial, residential and institutional buildings.
