Specialized In-situ testing

Specialized In-situ testing provides information regarding the subsurface of a project site. Our engineers use this information to refine design parameters and reduce the uncertainties associated with more conventional methods of testing.  For example, conventional exploration and testing might result in a recommendation for deep foundations. However, since in-situ technologies can obtain more specific subsurface data, sometimes we can recommend a more cost-effective and faster option, such as shallow foundations. The cost savings can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and days to weeks on the construction schedule simply by gathering better data using in-situ testing.

These technologies help us get the best possible information regarding the soil and groundwater properties on your site. Please contact us with any questions you have regarding in-situ testing.
