Geotechnical drilling, engineering, and laboratory testing is vital to the design and construction of a project. Subsurface soil, rock, and ground water conditions, when properly identified and classified, can play as important a role as the above ground design. This is especially true when construction is being considered on property which may contain problematic soils or may be potentially contaminated.

Our firm utilizes ground penetrating radar (GPR) and other geophysical methods to locate rebar, post-tensioned cables and conduit in concrete as well as buried utilities, pipes and underground storage tanks (USTs). Usually a better alternative to X-Ray, GPR is excellent for renovations, tenant up-fits, and new construction. Our latest Mini and Dual-Frequency antennas are even more versatile and cost-effective than traditional GPR systems.

  • Rebar and PT Cables
  • Conduits and Pipes
  • Underground Utilities and Gas Lines
  • Underground Storage Tanks
  • Historic Burial Sites and Cemeteries
  • Underground Tunnels for Border Patrol Roadway Inspections
  • Structural Forensic Investigations
  • 2-D & 3-D Imaging and Mapping
  • Safe Real Time Targeting
  • Non-Destructive and Non-Intrusive
  • Digital Media Storage and Sharing
