Value Engineering

ECS provides geotechnical consulting services to assist the design team with cost-effective and practical solutions. If potential problems are identified during the design phase of a project, ECS works with our clients to evaluate innovative alternatives and cost-saving solutions. ECS’s use of “value engineering” techniques often produces practical and economical foundation solutions such as changing deep foundation systems (driven piles for example) to conventional shallow spread-footing systems, or increasing the bearing capacity to reduce the size of conventional spread-footings. ECS’s use of value engineering has saved our clients millions of dollars on projects throughout the Region.
